The Craft: Legacy is a wholly new story.
Indeed, The Craft: Legacy succeeds because the movie isn’t a remake, but something new altogether. The interpersonal relationships between the witches don’t play out as the first story did, and they all come from various different backgrounds. This helps Legacy feel very current, and show the different struggles that young women are going through when compared to the 90s. Just like the original, The Craft: Legacy tackles real-world social issues and gender politics, in addition to the magic, friendship, and occasional scare. Zoe Lister-Jones told a number of LGBT stories with this entry into the franchise, tackling trans issues and biphobia. Add in the racial diversity among the cast, Legacy truly feels like it reflects what the real world truly looks like.
