The Craft: Legacy is a whole new story.
In fact, The Craft: Legacy is successful because the film is not a remake, but something completely new. The interpersonal relationships between the witches do not play out as in the first story and they all have different backgrounds. This helps Legacy feel very timely and shows the different struggles young women are going through compared to the 90s. Just like the original, The Craft: Legacy deals with real social problems and gender politics in addition to magic, friendship and the occasional fear. With this entry into the franchise, Zoe Lister-Jones told a series of LGBT stories about transactional issues and biphobia. When you add the racial diversity among the cast, Legacy really feels like it reflects what the real world really looks like.
