Apart from a title, logo, a short synopsis and some impressive casting announcements that include Ralph Fiennes, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Daniel Brühl; very little is known about the upcoming sequel/prequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) and Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017). It looks like that all changes tomorrow.
FandomWire has learned that our first trailer for the next film in the Kingsman franchise will drop tomorrow morning… giving us our first look at the new characters, time period, and plot points of the film.

A Bold New Direction.
Late last year, Taron Egerton (who portrayed the main character, Eggsy, in previous installments of the Kingsman franchise as well as Elton John in this summer’s Rocketman (2019)) let slip that he would not be returning for the third film in the popular spy comedy franchise.
That isn’t to say he won’t be returning to the franchise ever again, with rumors of Egerton and director Matthew Vaughn both wanting to finish out the Eggsy and Harry storyline presented in Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) and Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017).
Vaughn looks to be taking the franchise in a very different direction setting it in the early years of the Kingsman organization. This means we will be seeing entirely new characters in a plot revolving much more around protecting the kings of the United Kingdom.
The official synopsis from Disney (yes, Disney) is as follows:
“As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency in The King’s Man…”
The previous films were originally distributed by 20th Century Fox, but in light of the Disney/Fox merger, The King’s Man will be the first Kingsman movie distributed by Disney.
