The first images of the new Charlie’s Angels movie have started circulating online, leaving fans of the all-female spy trio in excitement.
The new iteration of the popular franchise stars bisexual actress Kristen Stewart as one of the angels. Her martial art and disguise savvy friends will be portrayed by Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.
Scott is famous for her role in the Power Rangers movie and in Disney’s upcoming live-action Aladdin, whereas the film will be Balinska’s most important role to date.
The new Angels
Entertainment Weekly has released images of the Angels today (12 April).
Stewart will play Sabina Wilson, the hard-partying, highly skilled wild card. It isn’t clear whether the character itself will be LGBTI.
Scott and Balinska will star as Elena Houghlin and Jane Kano respectively. Houghlin is a MIT-trained scientist who, as Banks puts it, will serve as ‘the heart of the movie’, while Kano is a former MI6 agent.
The unlikely trio’s missions will take them across Europe, from Istanbul to Hamburg, and Berlin.

Elizabeth Banks directs
The new movie will be directed by Elizabeth Banks. Banks, who previously directed Pitch Perfect 2, will also star as Bosley, the link between the angelic trio and their mysterious boss Charlie.
Joining the Angels, a star-studded cast, including Sam Claflin, Noah Centineo, Patrick Stewart, and Djimon Hounsou.
Patrick Stewart and Hounsou will also take the role of Bosley.
‘”Bosley” is now a rank in the organization, like lieutenants,’ Banks explained to EW.
‘All of the Angels have been played by different women and have had different names, but the Bosley character was always named Bosley no matter who played him. We thought, “Well, that must mean it’s more than a name.”‘
The Hunger Games actress also produced the movie and co-wrote the script.
But Stewart isn’t the first LGBTI star to play an Angel
Stewart isn’t the first bisexual actress to play an Angel.
Drew Barrymore, who reportedly dated both genders, portrayed Dylan in the two movies directed by McG, Charlie’s Angels and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. Barrymore starred alongside Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu.
Charlie’s Angels hits theatres on 15 November 2019.
