Fans were upset when Neve Campbell was announced as the Scream star for next year's Scream VI. These movies spanned nearly three decades and Sidney Prescott (Campbell), remained a consistent force in keeping Ghostface alive. What made Sidney such an important protagonist in a constantly changing cast of characters? And why is it so hard for fans to see the title pass on? Perri Nemiroff, Collider's correspondent, spoke to Kevin Williamson, the original screenwriter. He shared his secrets to Sidney’s success and how much it was Campbell's ideas about her character. Sidney Prescott was a singular final girl before the sequels. She refused to be victimized and was strong in her convictions. Williamson approached Williamson for a sequel. He stated that his main concern was to provide the audience with something new. However, he also admitted that there were no new stories. It's all about execution and your characters. Williamson stated that Sidney was the main focus of the whole plot for Scream 3. He also said, "You have to find a way to make your character feel alive so that they care." Williamson discovered the heart and soul he was looking for in Campbell. After nearly losing everyone she loved in Scream, Sidney changed her identity. She moved to a remote property to work for a crisis hotline. "I feel like Sidney connects with a lot people, and I believe Laurie Strode also connects. Anyone who has experienced trauma like that will find a connection with Laurie Strode. Neve thought it was very clever to suggest that we make Sidney an advocate for victims in the next installment. It was Neve's idea, and I believe she was smart about it. I also like the fact that Sidney has spent her entire life advocating for survivors of violence and trauma. How can you not care for someone who has spent their entire life doing this? You just have to care about someone. Sidney dedicated her time to helping others and helping them through trauma. Even though her tragedies were dragged through media and she was called the "Angel of Death" by some, Sidney was summoned to stop the Ghostface generation in Matt BettinelliOlpin's Scream 5. She was initially hesitant. Campbell will be missed in Scream VI. But all the final girls deserve a break. With Melissa Barrera as Sam Carpenter (Jenna Ortega) and Tara (Jenna Ortega), the sequels will feature a talented cast with connections to the originals. This allows the franchise to continue in new ways. Sidney Prescott's caring relationship with Campbell will continue to live off-screen. Let's wait and see what this new crew brings us to New York City on March 10, 2023.
