The “Charmed” Reboot Has Finally Cast Its Three Sisters, But Not Everyone Approves

I loved watching Charmed back in the day, and I’m not going to lie, I’ve re-watched many of episodes when they were made available on Netflix in 2016.

So as you can imagine, I was really excited when I heard that there would be another chance for fans like me to become invested in the fictional lives of a coven of sister-witches, who used their gift to protect their town from evil.

Last November, The CW made the official announcement that Charmed would be returning for the first time since its finale aired in 2006. However, like all the other revivals taking place this year, there will be some major changes.

The show, which is expected to air during the 2018-2019 season, will feature a progressive twist, according to the official description.

“This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches,” read the description. “Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”

Fans were initially excited about the fact that the new story opens up an opportunity for the original cast members, Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, and Rose McGowan to reprise their respective roles as Pheobe, Prue, Piper, and Paige, but it doesn’t seem like that’ll be the case.

The network revealed the new actresses who will be playing the new generation of Halliwells – except they’re actually not Halliwells. The new trio of sisters have Pruitt as their surname.

So who are the new sister-witches?

There’s no denying that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s real-life fairy tale romance is one for the books, but apparently, it’s also for the small screen.

Disney Reveals Full Cast Of ‘The Lion King’ Remake

Last fall, while we were all reeling from the remake of The Jungle Book and anticipating the release of the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, Disney announced plans to give The Lion King the same live-action treatment that the other classics got.

Lately, Disney has found success in re-imagining their old movies. Beauty and the Beast raked in over $1 billion, so it is a no-brainer that they’re taking on one of the best animated movies next.

The company confirmed that Jon Favreau, the director behind the latest Jungle Book film, will spearhead the project, but at the time they did not provide us with information about the cast or a release date.

Now, over a year since Disney spilled the beans, we finally know when the movie will hit theaters and who will be starring in it.

Many fans had hoped that the original cast would reunite for the remake because honestly, it’s hard to imagine Simba without Jonathan Taylor Thomas’ raspy voice or Rowan Atkinson as Zazu, but sadly only James Earl Jones will reprise is role as Mufasa.

With that said, the new cast features some major talent and we’re absolutely excited to see them bring one of our favorite movies to life again.

So who made the cut?
