Many people’s first thought when they hear an old classic story is being rebooted is “why?” A lot of people possess the belief that classic shows and movies should not be remade, as they fear that the old stories they once fell in love with will be ruined. But sometimes, bringing an old story back to life can have unexpectedly good results.

Netflix’s Anne with an E is a slightly modernized retelling of the wildly famous Anne of Green Gables books. The show aired on Netflix in early 2017, and the second season came out in early July of this year.

As someone who did not read the Anne of Green Gables books prior to watching the show, I cannot say whether or not the show did the books and original movies justice or not. But what I can say is that I was very touched by the show and I genuinely enjoyed watching it.

The story takes place in the 19th century, and is centered around Anne Shirley, a young orphan living in a small village called Avonlea. Siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert decide to take in a young boy to help them with their farm, but when Matthew goes to get the child, he finds that there was a mix-up, and he was given a girl instead.

Anne Shirley is the vibrant young orphan who was sent in place of the young boy. Anne is taken home with Matthew to Green Gables, where she falls in love with the farm and begs the Cuthberts not to take her back to the train station after Marilla insists that she must return. After an incident occurs involving a lost brooch, Anne is returned to the station, but eventually gets to come home and the three are reunited.

The show focuses on many important themes such as feminism, inclusivity, and equality, and touches on important issues such as bullying, self-doubt, and racism. It highlights the idea that we are all individuals, asserting that “different isn’t bad, it’s just not the same.”

Overall, the show gives off a powerful message of positivity and reminds viewers of the beauty of singularity. I absolutely adore the show and am anxiously awaiting the third season.
