Fajar Bustomi, one of the directors of Dilan 1990, Dilan 1991 and Milea: Suara dari Dilan, has announced that there will be an extended version of Dilan 1990.

Adapted from best-selling books by Pidi Baiq, the movies narrate the story of high school sweethearts Dilan (Iqbaal Ramadhan) and Milea (Vanesha Prescilla), starting from the first time they meet until they officially become a couple.

“There will be another movie about Dilan and Milea,” Fajar said during a live session with movie theater giant Cinema XXI on Instagram, adding that several additional scenes were filmed that would be compiled for the extended version.

According to, the extended version will also answer fans' questions about several parts in the books that didn’t make it to the film.

“Be patient, we will release it,” said Fajar. “People often DM [direct message] me, asking why the film doesn't have this or that scene.”

Fajar added that Pidi is currently working on the fourth novel about Dilan and Milea.

“Hopefully, the writing process is going smoothly,” Fajar said. “[Pidi] said he planned to make the series a pentalogy.”

According to film website, Dilan 1990 was the most-watched film in Indonesia in 2018, attracting more than 6 million moviegoers. Its sequel Dilan 1991 was named the most-watched film of 2019, garnering over 5 million viewers. The third film, Milea: Suara dari Dilan (2020), attracted 1.2 million moviegoers in three days. (wir/wng)
