Django 2: il grande ritorno (internationally released as Django Strikes Again and Django Rides Again) is a 1987 Italian spaghetti western film directed by Nello Rossati. It is the only official sequel of Django.[1]


Twenty years after the event in the first Django, the title character has left the violent world of gunslinger to become a monk. Living in a monastery, he wants no more of the violent actions he perpetrated. Later, he learns that along the way, he had a daughter who is working for ruthless criminals in a mine, for which they hope to get rich from the spoils. Determined to find his daughter and nail the bad guys, Django gets some arms and goes on the warpath.



The project was born in parallel with Duccio Tessari's Tex e il signore degli abissi, in view of a commercial revival of the Italo-western cinema. After the commercial failure of Tex, Sergio Corbucci, who had initially accepted the direction of the sequel and had just written the story of the film, eventually refused to shoot it.[1]

It was filmed in Colombia.[1] It represents the last appearance of Christopher Connelly, who died of cancer the following year.[1]
