Meet Carrie Bradshaw: The Next Generation

How many Carrie Bradshaw's does the world need? Well, apparently at least two, according to the CW, who is airing The Carrie Diaries, a prequel to Sex and the City, which we will probably find enjoyable despite ourselves. It will feature a teenage Carrie B. living it up in 1980s Manhattan, and she'll be played by 18-year-old AnnaSophia Robb. You may remember Robb from the time she played another classic character, Violet Beauregarde, in the Johnny Depp version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I'm sure she's lovely, but does she have what it takes to convince us that she's a younger version of Sarah Jessica Parker's eternally spunky, oft-worst-dressed, and never without a quip Carrie? We'll just have to wait and see.
