In case you didn’t know, the new installment will star Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, and Elizabeth Banks. It will also be directed by Elizabeth Banks. I stan harder than I’ve ever stanned before!

And, although we don’t have a trailer YET, we do have some fun tidbits about the upcoming film that are gonna leave you eagerly anticipating its release:

1. It’s not a remake or a reboot, but a continuation of the beloved late-1970s television series and early-2000s films.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Banks revealed that Charlie Townsend has become, as the rich often do, EVEN RICHER, basically a “gazillionare,” and has used his immense wealth to grow his business into a global spy agency.

2. The three ladies aren’t replacing any of the OG Angels, but rather are just new recruits!

We have Sabina Wilson (Kristen Stewart), the “skilled wild card” who works hard and plays harder; Jane Kano (Ella Balinska), the braun of the group who also used to be in MI6; and and Elena Houghlin (Naomi Scott), the brainy scientist who serves as “the heart of the film.” Color me IMPRESSED. Can’t wait to see these three ladies kick ass on the big screen!

3. Even though these ladies are going to be traveling all over the globe — being badasses — the film focuses primarily on teamwork.

Columbia

Banks talked about how she wanted to make a movie about ladies actually working together as a cohesive unit, and not getting sidetracked by romance/families/all the other hoopla that sometimes comes with female-centered movies. Can I get an Amen?

4. The group dynamic from the Mission: Impossible franchise is a huge inspiration for how Banks modeled the dynamic between the three ladies.

Paramount

Praying we get an arm reload in this film as well. One can dream.

5. Bosley’s getting an update!

Instead of Bosley being a “person,” like he was in the films and the TV series, “Bosley” will now be a high-level position held by several people in the new global spy agency. So all those rumors you heard about Elizabeth Banks, Patrick Stewart, and Djimon Hounsou playing Bosley were true!

6. We’re still getting the stunts and the subterfuge, but it’s gonna be a bit more grounded.

Columbia

Instead of getting over the top stunts and farcical-level hoaxes, it’s going to be more grounded and realistic. Don’t worry, it’s still going to be badass, but the stunts will have you saying, “Oh, that’s plausible in real life.”

7. Now, we still don’t know much about Noah Centineo’s character. We only know that he’s an ally to the Angels.

His character, Langston, is a friend of Naomi Scott’s character, Elena. Maybe he’ll assist them on a mission or two and we’ll get to see him in some ~action sequences~. HERE’S HOPING!

8. Even though John Forsythe, the voice of Charlie in the films and the TV series, passed away in 2010, Banks said there will be an homage to him in the film.

Columbia

Banks teased that fans of the OG series — AKA me — will notice similarities in the voice they used and the late-John Forsythe. My nostalgic heart is singing. I can’t wait to see what they do with this!

9. Finally, and most importantly, the takeaway of this movie is that it’s a story about three strong women in a time where female-driven stories are RISING TO THE TOP!

Columbia

Banks talked about how it’s a super exciting time for female-driven films, especially in the wake of Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman. These ladies are gonna be “real,” “relatable,” and ready for whatever’s thrown their way! I bow down to all three of these queens!

Wowza. I don’t know about y’all, but I am EVEN MORE stoked for this to come out. Can’t wait until November 15 to see this glorious film!
