In March 2021 Netflix released an interview featuring cast members, Renate Stuurman and Khanyi Mbau chatting about what we can expect from Happiness Ever After.

We wanted to take audiences somewhere new, to elevate them and not to just be where you left them,” said Stuurman.

While Mbau added that since the film will be released on Netflix South African people will feel like they own it more.

“Unlike in the past where you see it once and that’s it, unless you pay for a ticket and drive again, you can always click the button and watch it again, and rewind or fast forward to your favourite parts.

“And parts that really triggered you or touched you, so I am happy that we have now given you even more ownership, to the ladies, to the story and to the movie,” Mbau added.
