For some people, I included, we have always wondered what happened to the characters from The Craft (1996) after the events that happened in the movie. So knowing that the new one was going to be a sequel and not a remake was a good surprise. And this new one, entitled The Craft: Legacy (2020), is about to see the light almost 25 years of the first movie.
Released on May 3, 1996, directed by Andrew Fleming and starring Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True, The Craft (1996)’s plot centers on a group of four outcast teenage girls at a fictional Los Angeles parochial high school who pursue witchcraft for their own gain. But soon encounter negative repercussions, which prove to be the ruin of one of them and a harsh learning experience for the other three, according to the Rule of Three of Wicca, which states that one’s actions, whether positive or negative, return to the actor threefold.
The plot of The Craft: Legacy (2020) has lots of similarities with the original one, and also follows a group of high school students who form a coven of witches. New clothing style, new music, but the same old teenage problems.
Zoe Lister-Jones, a comedy actress, writer and director who debuted behind the cameras with a feature film with awards-winner and Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee Band Aid (2017), has been chosen to write and direct The Craft: Legacy (2020). The new group of troubled teenagers is starred by Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, and Zoey Luna, with the main cast completed with Michelle Monaghan, David Duchovny, Nicholas Galitzine, Julian Grey, Donald MacLean Jr., and Fairuza Balk returning as Nancy Downs.
Jason Blum has been the producer of The Craft: Legacy (2020), under his Blumhouse Productions banner, with Andrew Fleming, the director of the original film, serving as an executive producer. The movie is scheduled for an international release on October 28, 2020, via Columbia Pictures. Here you can watch its official trailer.
