Universal had the anticipated sequel set to release on Valentine's Day, but Feb 14th is also the one year anniversary of the Parkland shooting in Florida.
"When Universal Pictures became aware last week that the one-year anniversary of the tragic events in Parkland, Florida fell on the Happy Death Day 2U release date, the studio spoke with victim advocates and immediately began the process of changing the release date of the film. Following discussions with its partners in exhibition, Universal will move the North American release date to February 13."
The Parkland survivors became media sensations for their brave activism and constant dunking on shit politicians early last year. The March for Our Lives event was a huge success and spawned many other sister marches across the globe.
