Netflix has dropped off the first-look images for its upcoming murder-mystery film, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, directed by Rian Johnson. The movie, which will arrive as a follow-up to 2019’s Knives Out, sees Daniel Craig reprise his role as detective Benoit Blanc, who must travel to the Mediterranean in order to solve a new mystery.

Johnson equates his casting process to “throwing a dinner party,” according to the streamer. Seated around the Glass Onion table are Craig, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, with Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista. Although plot details remain largely under wraps, Netflix did reveal that the film is slated to debut on December 23, following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

The title of the film references The Beatles‘ 1968 track, “Glass Onion,” Johnson confirmed in a new interview with Netflix’s Tudum. “I’m always fishing for something fun that Blanc can grab onto as an overwrought metaphor that he can beat to death,” he said. “This is all in plain sight from the very start. So, the idea of glass came to me, something that’s clear. I’ll be very honest. I literally got out my iPhone and searched my music library with the word ‘glass.’ There’s got to be some good glass songs. I was like, ‘Oh, is it a glass fortress? Is it a glass castle? Is it a glass man?’ The first thing that came up, because I’m a huge Beatles fan, is ‘Glass Onion.’”
