What would the remake of Beaches be like? We’re about ready to find out because Lifetime is about to premiere it January. This time, it stars Idina Menzel as CC Bloom and Nia Long as Hillary.

I’m going to have to watch it find out, but is there a way it could ever be as good as the original? Two children from completely different walks of life become the best of friends. For those who have never watched it, I won’t ruin the story.

But, did you know that the original young CC Bloom…

Bette Midler blessed Idina Menzel and wished her well in the movie remake. That should mean all the difference in the world. There are people who would act petty if someone tried to outdo them in a role they made their own years ago. But, I think they cast was trying to get as close to the original as possible.

You might want to watch the original before you watch the remake. It will definitely show you what all the hype is about in the first place.
