Firestarter Story

Charlie is a young girl who has the power to create and control fire. Her father, Andrew, must do whatever it takes to safeguard her from an unknown government agency known as “The Shop,” which is bent on capturing her.

They want to study her because she was born with the ability to generate and control fire. In contrast, her parents only obtained theirs after taking part in an experimental drug trial.

Charlie, unlike her parents, does not have any negative side effects when she utilizes her abilities. The plot will be familiar since this is a remake of the 1984 film, but with far superior special effects.

Firestarter Release Date

Firestarter, Universal Pictures’ newest film, will be released on May 13, 2022- in theaters and on the Peacock streaming service. This release strategy was adopted in response to the pandemic as a means of both boosting Peacock’s ( Digital Release ) subscriber numbers and providing moviegoers with a way of viewing its newest films from the safety and comfort of their homes.

Firestarter tells the story of a girl who develops pyrokinetic abilities and must use her powers to save her family from a group of government agents who intend to harness her abilities for their own purposes.

What are the Major Changes From the Book or the 1984 Firestarter?

There are some major changes in the movie from the book and the original 1984 Firestarter. For one, in the book and original movie, Charlie’s parents are already dead when the story begins. However, in the new Firestarter, they’re very much alive – and Zac Efron plays her father.

So there you have it – some major changes to the Firestarter story that we know and love. But at its core, the new movie still looks like it will be fascinating to explore what it means to have dangerous powers and how far people will go to protect those they love.
