Molly Ringwald takes a look at Selena Gomez’s 16 Candles series

WE! made a wish on 16 candles and it came true!

On March 15, it was announced that Selena Gomez will serve as executive producer on a new UCP series for Peacock 15 Candlesbased on John Hughes‘iconic movie 16 Candles, with a Latinx twist. And now, in an exclusive interview, Molly Ringwald– who played the lead role of Samantha in the coming-of-age film – shared her thoughts on the production.

“I’m so happy about that,” Ringwald told E! News. “I really feel like when people always ask me to reboot my movies, I’m like, ‘No, those movies were wonderful,’ but what they should do is take inspiration from them and make something completely different but inspired, so it just sounds fantastic.”

The series – written and produced by Gomez, Tanya Saracho and Gabriela Revilla Lugo– follows “four young Latinas entering high school as they overcome their sense of invisibility while exploring what it means to leave childhood behind through the lens of the traditional rite of passage into adulthood: the quinceañera” , according to Deadline.
