This is the time that wants it, we redo everything, we no longer take risk, as if the future was so terrifying that he had to take refuge in the past, and recreate it, to reassure themselves and feel that they master something.
So yes, it is very annoying but this puts us in a strange situation and contradictory. In fact, if one deplores a lack of originality and of creativity in general in an industry that has never picked up money in its history, it was when the fiber nostalgic that we tickles. After all, we are still human beings and some times, you feel like gorging on Madeleines of Proust.
The problem is when this becomes widespread, that we eat too much, that it verges on the indigestion, and that we wonder if we are not going to simply end up with diabetes. This regime is not ready to come to an end when you see all the ongoing projects relating to the brands past are back and, as you might expect, Sister Act will be no exception.
The announcement, however, is not new, as already in 2015, Disney announced its intention to offer to the mini-saga of Whoopi Goldberg a new episode without much to say if it was a sequel or a remake. The info returned from time to time and, in particular, a few weeks ago, when the actress had expressed on the subject by confirming that she was interested.
Today, we learn via Entertainment Weekly that Disney was always the intention to make a Sister Act 3 , but for his future service of SVOD Disney + which will be launched in 2019 and with as main aim to dethrone Netflix. So, this brings up a big question : will there be a movie exclusive or is it that we’ll get a series ?
Too early to tell even if Disney just hire two screenwriters, Regina Hicks and Karin Gist, to write the scenario. Of course, the larger question remains : Whoopi Goldberg will she be back ? We would very much like to.
