Tall Girl 2 Filming Location: New Orleans, Louisiana!

Tall Girl 2 is the story of how a six-foot-one and a half inches teenage girl Jodi handles her new relationship while dealing with various insecurities, some of which reemerges partly due to her height.

Since the movie revolves around a teenager, it can be guessed that most of it contains settings of the teenager’s home and school.

Because Tall Girl 2 is a sequel that picks up after three months of the events of Tall Girl, the romcom has been filmed where its predecessor was shot, which is New Orleans in Louisiana.

Principal photography of the film was carried out in different parts of New Orleans, the most populous city in Louisiana.

Specifically, to shoot the scenes of Jodi’s house, it is believed that the cast and the shooting crew have revisited the same place where they filmed Tall Girl. The family home on 1247 Esplanade Avenue probably is featured in the movie once again as Jodi‘s house.

Likewise, Jack Dunkleman‘s mansion is supposedly located on 1328 Harmony Street in the neighborhood of Garden District. For filming a few scenes of Jack’s house, it is possible that the production team may have used the same residential property to shoot ‘Tall Girl 2’ as well.

Besides that, multiple scenes were extensively photographed in several spots in the French Quarter neighborhood, which is the center of New Orleans. A few sequences filmed on 400 Royal Street was also included in this. Some sources claim that they spotted several crew trucks on the Marigny side of St. Louis Street.

Plus, Jackson Square was also used to lense quite a few sequences. It has been revealed that shooting in the area has impacted parking on the Central Business District side, close to the 600 and 700 blocks of St. Ann Street. However, filming specifically reportedly was done near 500 Decatur Street, which is about a 4-minute walk from the historic Jackson Square.

Principal photography for the movie started on April 12, 2021. That day, Netflix announced that the production for the movie had begun by posting Instagram reels featuring all cast members. The shooting reportedly was wrapped up after almost one and a half months in May 2021.

The production crew didn’t compromise the safety of the cast members and workforce as they worked during the ongoing pandemic. They put strict guidelines in place that were designed to ensure safety from Covid-19. Those guidelines were taken seriously and followed strictly by the cast and crew members.

All the members involved in the production unit were required to get tested at least once a week. On-location catering was not facilitated and surfaces were frequently cleaned. And hand sanitizers were at disposal in the sets to be used.
