Fresh off her magic carpet ride in the summer box office hit, Aladdin, Naomi Scott is entering a whole new world of international espionage as the newest member of an elite squad of women warriors known as the Angels... Charlie’s Angels. The first trailer for the Elizabeth Banks-directed reboot of the late ‘70s TV series as well as the early ‘00s feature film and its sequel blasted onto the internet today, providing the public with the first look at the new lineup of Angels — including Kristen Stewart and Ella Balinska — as well as the franchise’s new attitude. Think Mission: Impossible with better disguises and hipper music. (Watch the trailer above.)
Besides directing the Angels behind-the-camera, Banks also gets in on the action as the new Bosley, the go-between for the women and their mysterious employer at the Townsend Agency, Charlie. But she’s not the only one with that name: Patrick Stewart, Djimon Hounsou and Sam Claflin are also designated “Bosleys” overseeing different crews of Angels. (In other words, expect cameos.) Banks’s Bosley welcomes Scott’s software engineer, Elena, into a team that includes master of disguise Sabina (Stewart) and designated muscle Jane (Balinska). Those two are tasked with teaching the new recruit on the fly while also keeping bad guys from swiping special tech that could revolutionize the power industry.
Much of the early buzz on Twitter is, understandably, focused on Stewart, making her return to big-budget studio filmmaking for the first time since Snow White and the Huntsman in her most action-intensive role to date. And she shows off her moves in the opening scenes of the trailer, proving to a would-be alpha male that women really can do anything. Charlie’s Angels is also the first blockbuster the actress has made since coming out two years ago, and many online are openly hoping that Sabina turns out to be “like, so gay” as well.

my impression of the CHARLIE’S ANGELS trailer:— mrs. forky (@jourdayen) June 27, 2019
kristen stewart is a work of art in motion
Banks is doing her part to drive Stewart’s fanbase wild, describing her to People magazine as: “A world-famous beauty, a style icon, but I think what she’s most known for is living authentically. Just being herself all the time. I think that people will be delighted by just how much fun she’s having in this movie.”
While everyone seems all in on Stewart, there are some doubts about revisiting the Angels, even with a female director behind the camera for the first time in the franchise’s history. Those who grew up with the Angels team that featured Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu are feeling particularly nostalgic.

Charlie's Angels looks really bad as a movie but Kristen Stewart could step on my throat and I'd thank her for it god she is so HOT— Jo Rozycki (@row_zik_ee) June 27, 2019
Like the song goes, Stewart is declaring herself an independent woman, so throw your hands up for her.
