It's another Rian Johnson whodunnit. On Dec. 23, "Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery" finally hits Netflix, and the "Knives Out" sequel promises another twisting, turning mystery at its center.

"In the follow up to Rian Johnson's 'Knives Out,' Detective Benoit Blanc travels to Greece to peel back the layers of a mystery involving a new cast of colorful suspects," Netflix's official logline reads. Of course, Daniel Craig is back as the world-famous detective Benoit Blanc. The new movie's sprawling cast also includes Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Edward Norton, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, and Kate Hudson as the ultra-wealthy rich people whose world Benoit explores and ultimately tears apart. And movie viewers might notice that a lot of the characters seem at least inspired by some real headline makers.

Johnson teased to Yahoo in an interview published Dec. 19 that this movie will give audiences more of Benoit's background. "I think we were both kind of on the same page that these movies first and foremost have to be about the mystery, and Blanc is central to that in that he's central to solving the mystery," Johnson said of his and Craig's ideas for the movie and the character. "But I think both of us kind of came into ["Glass Onion"] thinking about the notion of building out a backstory for him. And it's fun to get little glimpses of that. We get a little glimpse of his home life."

Ahead, here's a spoiler-free rundown of the film's main cast and what the actors have said about their complex gang of characters.
