‘Charlie’s Angels’ is by no means a superhero film, but it is almost like one. The women in the film are up to heroics all the time, trying to save the day from various threats. If you are just getting into ‘Charlie’s Angels’, and are unfamiliar with where the film fits in as part of the larger picture, let us clear it up.
The 2019 movie from Elizabeth Banks is a continuation rather than a reboot of the earlier film series, whose franchise chances were canceled after ‘Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle’ was poorly received. All the films, in turn, happen to be a continuation of the television series which aired way back in 1976. Unlike the show, the movies have done away with the dramatic elements, focusing on the action-comedy elements instead.
The new ‘Charlie’s Angels’ movie sees the Townsend Agency at its peak. While it still serves the same purpose of providing security and investigative skills to private clients, the agency is now international, with operatives from around the globe working for them. The smart and well-trained women form their own teams of ‘Angels’ and are guided by multiple Bosleys on dangerous missions. An engineer turns to a whistleblower against his former employers, calling the Angels into action, to put their lives on the line to save the day.
‘Charlie’s Angels’ definitely deserves a sequel, since it has a history of trying to make itself into a franchise. Now, with more woke angels, the movie has been made appropriate for current times where gender politics demands apt representation in art. The film itself sets up the possibility of another story, from what we see in the credit scenes at the end of the movie. Without further ado, let us tell you everything we know about ‘Charlie’s Angels 2’.
Charlie’s Angels 2 Plot: What Can It Be About?
The sequel to ‘Charlie’s Angels’ is likely to see a group of Angels back in action, saving the world once again, while protecting innocent lives. Despite the seemingly straightforward structure, you must be wondering if the same team of kickass agents will be back, or will we be seeing new operatives. Well, on that note, ‘Charlie’s Angels’ seems to have taken a page out of the ‘Men in Black‘ reboot, which literally took their organization to an international level, as the title suggests.
Since 2019’s ‘Charlie’s Angels’ also sets up the Townsend Agency as an international operation, the sequels could potentially be filmed anywhere in the world. We love to see action unfurling in exotic locations, and ‘Charlie’s Angels’ is well poised to deliver that. Alternately, we could see the same Angels making a comeback. Since the scenes after the movie hinted that there was more to their backstory than what has been explored, it is possibly a point that the sequel could choose to address.
However, going by the fact that a series of vignettes has offered a look at some of the newest recruits, or Angels, we could see these women stepping up to save the day in the next movie. That would make it all the more exciting since a new team would offer new dynamics. The 2019 movie has set up several plot points that a sequel could choose to explore if it is greenlit by the studios.
Charlie’s Angels 2 Cast: Who Can Be In It?
The Angels in the 2019 movie are Sabina, Elena, and Jane, played by Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska, respectively. While they could certainly be back as the Angels in the sequel as well, we are most likely going to see the new recruits stepping up to the challenge. Thus, we expect to see Lili Reinhart, Hailee Steinfeld, Aly Raisman and Chloe Kim, in larger roles than the cameos they had in 2019’s ‘Charlie’s Angels’.
The movie also shows us a team of instructors training the Angels, and they could be back as mentors. These include Ronda Rousey, Danica Patrick, and Laverne Cox. Fans of the franchise will love to see Jaclyn Smith back as Kelly Garrett, who is sure to spark nostalgia, having appeared in the second movie. While the character of Charlie still remains shrouded in mystery, the movie cleared up that Charlie is a woman, and her profile from the back looked somewhat like Cameron Diaz, so we would not be surprised if the actress appeared in the sequel.
Charlie’s Angels 2 Crew: Who Can Be Behind It?
Elizabeth Banks has directed ‘Charlie’s Angels’ from a story by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn. The same creative heads could be back for the sequel, though the story writers might just change depending on the direction the second movie takes. If the first movie is a box office success, Sony Pictures Releasing will be on board to make a profit on their investment, in ‘Charlie’s Angels 2’ as well.
Charlie’s Angels 2 Release Date: When Can It Premiere?
‘Charlie’s Angels’ released in November 2019, more than a year after the shooting began in September 2018. Since it will take a shorter time to get the wheels turning, considering the cast and crew are in place, we anticipate ‘Charlie’s Angels 2’ to release sometime in 2021, only if the project is immediately greenlit. A more conservative estimate would hint at a 2022 or 2023 release.
