No, Supercell is not a sequel to Twister released in 1996. Supercell is a disaster action film directed by Herbert James.

The movie tells the story of the character William Brody who is the son of the legendary storm chaser Bill Brody.

It resembles the story of older movies like Twister and Deep Impact which were also natural disaster movies that had a thrilling Impact on their viewers.

A lot of heartfelt moments in this natural disaster movie have exceeded the possible expectations of the viewers.

The movie was released on March 17, 2023, in the theaters and video on demand by Saban Films.

Is Supercell A Sequel To Twister?

No, Supercell is not a sequel to Twister. The two movies are only related because both of them are natural disaster movies.

As both movies are about storm chasers, viewers might get confused about it being a new edition of the 1996 movie. 

However, the plot in the movies is totally different. In the movie Twister, the movie's main characters Bill and Jo Harding are about to get divorced but had to join forces to create an advanced weather alert system.

The movie shows the thunderstorm that happened in 1969 in Oklahoma County. The disaster that happened was one of the strongest known to date.

Whereas, the new movie Supercell has another twist to the natural disaster plot commonly seen in such movies.

The movie starts in a stereotypical fashion with the father of the main character passing away in a giant supercell. 

It revolves around the son following the demised father's footsteps and wanting to research the disaster.

Moreover, both movies, while not a sequel to one another, surely plays with the viewer's anxiety and definitely play off their fears.

The star of the movie Anne Heche has passed away and it had been her last film. She played the character of the wife who lost her husband while storm-chasing.

It's a beautiful movie that investigates the human factor and provides us with a glimpse of one of nature's wonders. 

While we wait for William to enter the heart of the storm and see the supercell as his father had imagined it, there is a sense of unfinishedness. We all understand, though, that it is impossible to enter a storm.

Hence, William's flight from the storm represents the unfinishedness we experience in real life. Storms are out of our hands, and all we can do is stand in awe of their force and reverence for Mother Nature.

Supercell Movie Ending Explained

Supercell movie has a strom breathing ending as William never finds out about his father Bill. It shows that he knows about his father through his tremendous work.

In the last part of the movie, it shows that he has been attracted to all that his father has worked on. He also blames his mother for having no idea about his father.

As he thought that his mother has always kept him away from his father's work to prevent him from becoming like his father. 

In the end, he finds out that Quinn has achieved something that Bill couldn't. She has been able to deduce the particular frequency required for her to 'breathe' the storms. 

The final part of the movie shows her admitting that she adored her husband and all he did, and even after he passed away, she continued to work tirelessly until she fulfilled her husband's wishes.

The final scene shows William hearing a Supercell breathing and is able to get out from under it safely, thanks to his hearing.

So, William's ability to realize his father's desire and, consequently, his ability to get closer to his mother are both made possible by the equipment that Quinn didn't want William to use.

Quinn also understands this and accepts her situation rather than trying to hide it. The only thing that matters is that her son is back.
