Can you believe it's been 4 years since Big Little Lies first aired?! (4 years, 4 months, 3 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Big Little Lies end?
When Big Little Lies came to an end after 1 year in April 2017, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Celeste Wright (Nicole Kidman), Madeline Martha Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon) and Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Big Little Lies reunion disappoint people?
Big Little Lies aired from 2017-2017 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Kidman said she's not sure if Big Little Lies would work today. “I don't want to see old Celeste Wright,” she told a journalist (Kidman turned 54 in June). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Big Little Lies movie?
In a recent interview, Kathryn Newton (who played Abigail Carlson) said she can't imagine a Big Little Lies reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Laura Dern (who played Renata Klein) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Big Little Lies movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Big Little Lies film, Zoë Kravitz stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Big Little Lies reboot?
Recasting Big Little Lies for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Big Little Lies reunion, a Big Little Lies movie, or a Big Little Lies reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
