Charlie’s Angels Is Rebooting

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

We all fell madly in love with the three Charlie’s Angels who were so cool, and so tough decades ago.  They were epic, being all mysterious and working for this rich Charlie, solving crimes and helping everyone out.

 

It came out for the first time as a TV show in 1967, turning, Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jacklyn Smith into popular stars.  The show lasted for an entire five seasons, however the movies were the most famous, with Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz staring as the newest angels.  Even a few years later they had a sequel.

 

They tried to me another reboot in 2011, but it wasn’t so successful, ending after merely eight episodes.  And now, even though more than 40 years have gone by since the show first debuted, they’ve decided to give it one last chance.

 

Sony is banking on the fact that many female empowerment movies can been doing well lately. The new angels have not been completely finalized, but the top three in line for the roles are Naomi Scott, Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong’o.

 

The movie is planned to be released in June, 2019 and we look forward to finding out more as it gets closer.  How do you feel about a new Charlie’s Angels? Should it just stay as something from the past?
