If you happen to have been hoping that The Craft: Legacy would come with a reunion with the primary movie’s coven, we’re sorry to disappoint you proper off the bat. Whereas the sequel does pay homage to its predecessor in just a few methods, we do not get to see or hear something concerning the iconic ’90s solid, which included Neve Campbell, Robin Tunney, and Rachel True. However the brand new era of witches, performed by Cailee Spaeny, Lovie Simone, Gideon Adlon, and Zoey Luna, take the reins as our new coven with an enthusiasm that is paying homage to the primary foursome. It is not till the final half of the movie that we begin getting hints that there is extra to the story behind Cailee’s (Lily) energy and the ultimate moments of Legacy tie the 2 installments collectively.
The Craft Is a Masterpiece, however the Stars Who Nearly Acquired Solid Would’ve Been SO Attention-grabbing
After the witches’ spell on a classmate goes horribly awry, Lily begins to really feel her management over her powers slip. The grief and guilt over Tim’s (Nicholas Galitzine) loss of life and the invention that she’s adopted causes her to lash out, and in worry of what she may do (in addition to their half in Tim’s loss of life), the opposite witches bind all their powers. In fact, it would not assist when Lily is attacked by her mom’s boyfriend Adam (David Duchovny), who’s seeking to steal Lily’s energy for himself. It is by no means plainly stated if Adam’s a warlock or a demon, however his eyes flip black, and if Supernatural has taught me something, that is the signal of a demon. Lily’s coven arrives simply in time to disclose that they’ve unbound their magic after getting a message from Tim past the grave. The 4 witches overpower and remove Adam, and the following time we see them collectively, they’re seeing Lily off to satisfy her delivery mom.
If you happen to weren’t in a position to guess the place this was heading when it was revealed that Lily’s delivery mom resides in a psychiatric hospital, you are going to be actually shocked when she turns round! That is proper, Lily’s delivery mom is Nancy Downs herself, performed by Fairuza Balk. It is by no means defined how she got here to have Lily or who her father is, however perhaps that is for one more installment? Both means, it is a massive transfer to determine the connection between The Craft and Legacy, in addition to open us as much as the potential for extra sequels. Perhaps we’ll study the opposite witches within the coven even have ties to 4 that got here earlier than them? We’ll simply have to attend to see it!
