Carrie Campbell, who played “the woman with the heart of gold” on “Glee,” has shared her thoughts on the “Eternal Sun” sequel, “Elysium,” which will premiere on Netflix on August 21.
“Elysio” was originally announced to be a feature-length movie that would have been directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino, who wrote the first two films in the series.
“I was just going to go with it, just because it felt like a fun way to finish off the first movie,” Campbell tells Entertainment Weekly.
“I don’t think there’s really anything I’d change,” she continues.
“There’s just a lot more story to tell and a lot of fun stuff happening, and the film is pretty much the same.”
The sequel, which has been called a “classic” film, will also feature “gimmick” characters and new characters.
“The film is a classic story, it’s very good, and there’s nothing I could possibly do to change it,” Campbell says.
“The thing that I like about ‘Elysia’ is that it was sort of a continuation of the story of the first film, so you get to see a lot and get to experience a lot in the same story, but this time you get more time to get into it and see a whole lot of characters,” she adds.
“It’s a little bit like ‘Gotham’ where we see Gotham and we see all of Gotham City,” Campbell notes.
“But it’s a completely different story.”
For the first time in the “Gothams” universe, Campbell says, “we have a new villain, we have a whole new villain and a whole whole new world to go to.”
“It feels like the world is being rebuilt, and I don’t know if we’ll see all that much of that in ‘Elesia,’ but we will be seeing a lot,” she says.
Campbell is joined by “Giles” co-star Rachel Bilson to discuss the new film.
