Discover what went into the making of the upcoming boxing sequel "Creed II."

Check out the newly-released behind-the-scenes featurette for the highly-anticipated sequel to 2015's "Rocky" spin-off hit, which once again stars Michael B. Jordan as rising boxing star Adonis "Creed" Johnson, and Sylvester Stallone as his mentor, trainer and father figure, boxing legend Rocky Balboa.

The film, in which acclaimed director Steven Caple Jr. (The Land) has taken over directing duties from Ryan Coogler, is pitting Creed up against an extremely tough Russian opponent who just happens to share a family name with someone very familiar with Rocky and the late, Apollo Creed -- of course, we're talking about Ivan Drago (again played by Dolph Lundgren) and his son Viktor Drago (played by real-life German-Romanian boxer Florian Munteanu) who becomes Creed's new rival.

Co-starring Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad, "Creed II" is coming to theaters November 21st.

synopsis:
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family's past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing's more important than family.

Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can't escape your history.
