The Craft: Legacy is officially scheduled for a PVOD next month on October 28, 2020 and today, the new production from genre powerhouse Blumhouse Productions released its official poster and trailer to give us a taste of just what they have in store for us.
There has been some debate since the film’s announcement. Was this a reboot? A remake? A sequel? No one really seemed to be able to tell us, but we can at least say after watching the film that it takes place in the same universe as the first. You’ll see why when you watch it below!
The Craft: Legacy was written and directed by Zoe Lister-Jones (Consumed) and stars Cailee Spaeny (Bad Times at the El Royale), Zoey Luna (Pose), Lovie Simone (Greenleaf), and Gideon Adlon (Blockers) as four teenage witches who get far more than they bargained for as they come into their powers.
David Duchovny (The X-Files), Michelle Monaghan (Messiah), and Nicholas Galitzine (Handsome Devil) also star.
“I’m thrilled to be able to share The Craft: Legacy with audiences all over the world this Halloween,” said the film’s writer and director, Zoe Lister-Jones in a statement we received this morning.. “It’s been a true privilege to take on such an iconic title. I can’t wait for the world to meet the incredible young women who make up our new coven.”
“Zoe Lister-Jones has put a bewitching twist on continuing The Craft franchise, and October is the perfect season for it,” producer Jason Blum added. “We’re thrilled that our partners at Sony Pictures are looking at the landscape opportunistically this Halloween, for audiences to watch at home in the U.S.”
The trailer is filled with with images and sounds that fans of the original 90s hit The Craft will immediately recognize, including the repetition of “light as a feather, stiff as a board” throughout.
Fan reactions since the announcement of the film have been varied, but personally, I’m really interested in seeing what they do as a whole. It’s certainly a Craft for a new generation.
