“I wanted to be Kate Jackson who didn’t?” Elizabeth told GMA. “Who hasn’t done the pose and the idea that these women were beauties with brains, who were kicking butt in an industry doing a job that was traditionally done by men. It was very revolutionary, and I felt like we needed to remind people, even today, that women’s opportunities and what they’re capable of, the sky’s the limit. That’s the point.”

The new film stars Banks as Bosley and the angels Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska. “They were big fans of the movies that Drew Barrymore made with Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu which are also completely iconic and incredible,” Banks added. “We took a lot of inspiration from all of it — from everything that came before and I feel like as a filmmaker, as a feminist, as a woman I’m standing on the shoulders of all the women that came before me in my industry and this movie is really about that. These angels stand on the shoulders of the angels that came before them and so, we honor that in the movie.”
