Go behind the scenes of the next chapter “The Craft” saga…
In Blumhouse’s continuation of the cult hit “The Craft,” an eclectic foursome of aspiring teenage witches get more than they bargained for as they lean into their newfound powers. The new film is directed by Zoe Lister-Jones and stars Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna, Nicholas Galitzine.
When three aspiring witches — Lourdes (Zoey Luna), Frankie (Gideon Adlon), and Tabby (Lovie Simon) — invite Lily to join their coven, she accepts. However, as their powers increase, the quartet soon discovers the hefty price of messing around with unknown forces. Although it’s been over two decades since The Craft materialized in theaters, Lister-Jones believes this modern installment couldn’t be timelier.
“A story that centers on young people, and young women specifically coming into their power in today’s current climate, is really important to me in terms of giving voice to narratives that have sometimes been marginalized,” Lister-Jones told SYFY WIRE during a visit to the Toronto set of The Craft: Legacy in early December 2019. “And really prioritizing representation and representing young people, and young women, authentically. And showcasing the struggles that young women are up against. And creating a world that really feels current and fresh, while still paying homage to everything that was incredible about the original, which was about centering voices of those people who were considered outsiders. I think that particular story is more important than ever to tell now.”
The Craft: Legacy is scheduled to be released in the United States through video on demand on October 28, 2020.
