YA Onscreen: Now With More Feminism!

Charmed will be returning to our TV screens soon, and did you realize how un-feminist it was at the time? (Us either.) Plus The Black Panther is kicking box-office ass and a trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

YA Onscreen: Now With More Feminism!

Thanks for joining me for another installment of YA Onscreen. I just got back from a three day bachelorette cruise for a dear friend (So. Much. Champers.), so forgive me if we skip the small talk and jump straight to the links—I’ve got some sleep to catch up on.

The CW has just announced they’re adding a modern-day reboot of Charmed to their next season lineup. I guess I need to stop being surprised every time they try to redo a recent show now, but c’mon—Charmed ended barely a decade ago. What’s next, a reboot of Riverdale in the ‘19-‘20 TV season? 

Also, Holly Marie Combs, who played Piper in the original, isn’t exactly thrilled with how the announcement took place, with the article calling it a “fierce, funny, and feminist reboot of the original”.

Get it, Holly.

More remakes we didn’t really ask for: Steven Spielberg is on the hunt for actors and actresses to be in his new project: a remake of West Side Story. I suppose there's a way to make this really good (use actual Puerto Ricans for Puerto Rican roles, get some fantastic singers on board and not just stunt casting *cough*RussellCroweLesMiz*cough*) but...I dunno. I'm just tired. I'd probably see it because I do love the music, so what does that make me? 

The Miseducation of Cameron Post, starring Chole Grace Moretz won the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival

Reviews are coming in for The Black Panther, and they are looking very, very good.  

New trailer alert for iZombie, coming back end of February. Did they just tell us Ravi’s fate, or is a fake-out? 

New teaser trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp:


Everything coming to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu in February, plus what’s leaving Netflix, too.  

Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer are teaming up for a holiday buddy-movie about two women fighting the elements to get home for Christmas

Hollywood Actual Nice Guy Tom Hanks is putting on a red sweater to play Mr. Rogers in the upcoming biopic, You Are My Friend

Fuller House has been renewed for a fourth season

Ryan Reynolds is working a remake of the movie Clue. I feel like this one is actually going to be bonkers enough that it won’t bear much resemblance to the original, kind of like the recent Jumanji—which definitely worked because it wasn’t a complete remake and also starred The Rock. Psst, hey, Ryan—you should totally hire The Rock for your movie. 

That’s it for the week. Let us know what we missed in the comments!
