We’re hyped for this!
We’ve been pretty excited for Amazon Prime’s upcoming adaptation of the mega-hit franchise Cinderella for some time now.
First of all, Camila Cabello looks every bit the perfect Cinders. Secondly, Billy Porter playing a genderless fairy godparent is giving us everything and more. Thirdly, Idina Menzel. Period.
The movie remake is described as a “musically-driven bold new take on the traditional story you grew up with”, in which “our heroine [Cinders] is an ambitious young woman whose dreams are bigger than the world will allow”.
The cast list is a who’s who of names; along with the above you can also expect see Pierce Prosnan as King Rowan, Minnie Driver as Queen Beatrice, Maddie Baillio and Charlotte Spencer as Cinderella’s stepsisters, John Mulaney, James Corden and Romesh Ranganathan as mice and Missy Elliott as the Town Crier.
Talking about the movie on Twitter, Cabello said “This was one of the most magical experiences of my life. I can’t wait for you to see it.”
This movie is scheduled to be released on Amazon on September 3, 2021. Full trailer below:
