Practical Magic 2: “Practical Magic” is a movie that a lot of people like. Based on Alice Hoffman’s 1995 book of the same name, the 1998 romantic comedy tells the story of two sisters, Gillian and Sally Owens, played by Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock, who come from a long line of powerful witches. The girls dream of love, but they know that any man they love will die because of a curse put on them by their ancestors.
After some bad things happened, Gillian and Sally have to use their magic to try to break the curse for good. Rotten Tomatoes only gave “Practical Magic” a 21% Tomatometer score, but audiences gave it a 73% score, which is much higher. Since it came out, the movie has gained a cult following, and now there will be a prequel.
In 2018, Alice Hoffman wrote “Rules of Magic,” which is a story that takes place before the well-known story of Gillian and Sally. The story is being made into a TV show, so people will have another chance to find out about the Owens family’s history. What do we know so far about the show?
Practical Magic 2 Release Date
Fans of the cult classic film “Practical Magic” have been eagerly anticipating news of a sequel for years. Now, the wait is finally over! The release date for “Practical Magic 2” has been announced and fans can’t wait to see what the Owens sisters are up to next. The film is set to be released in late 2023 and will reunite some of the original cast members, including Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman.
While little is known about the plot of the film, fans are already speculating about what magical adventures the Owens sisters will get into this time around. With the original film still beloved by fans all over the world, the anticipation for “Practical Magic 2” is sure to be high.
What Is “Rules of Magic” About?
“Rules of Magic” is based on Alice Hoffman’s 2018 book of the same name. The book is a prequel to her best-selling book “Practical Magic,” which became a big hit in 1995. According to Variety, the story is about three young Owens siblings, Franny, Jet, and Vincent, who are kept away from other people because of their strange traits.
The three don’t know it, but they come from a line of witches, and they have to learn to live with their magical fates. We know what will happen to Franny and Jet, but their brother will “leave an unexpected legacy,”
The series will be set in New York City in the 1960s, so we expect many interesting subplots to be about how culture changed during that time. No other plot details are known, but Melissa Rosenberg has a knack for writing interesting bad guys, like David Tennant’s Kilgrave in “Jessica Jones,” so “Rules of Magic” will probably have some great problems for its main characters to solve.
In the meantime, we’ll be waiting for more information about “Rules of Magic” and looking forward to when it comes to HBO Max.
Who’s Going to Be Back on the Cast List?
“Rules of Magic” hasn’t announced any actors or actresses yet. In the show, the aunts from “Practical Magic” will be played by younger versions of Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest, who played them so well in the 1998 movie. Vincent, who is the brother of aunts Frances and Jet, will also be a part of the story.
Hollywood doesn’t always go out of its way to make sure that people who play siblings look alike, so this casting could go in any direction. As seen in the “Gossip Girl” reboot, HBO Max often casts unknown, up-and-coming actors in their original shows. So, maybe “Rules of Magic” will have some new, exciting names.
It doesn’t look like “Practical Magic” will be an official part of the series, so Nicole Kidman or Sandra Bullock might show up for a fun cameo. The A-list actresses are two of the biggest stars in Hollywood, but we’d love to see them go back to their romantic comedy roots.
