The film that everyone’s been talking about is finally here. Camila Cabello, singer and former member of Fifth Harmony, stars in a new live-action Cinderella remake with a modern twist. The film comes from the mind of Kay Cannon, who wrote 2015’s musical phenomenon Pitch Perfect, and stars Cabello alongside a fantastic cast that includes Billy Porter as the Fabulous Godmother. In the adaptation, Cinderella is a talented dressmaker who dreams of opening her own store and establishing financial independence from her wicked stepmother.
The film is already garnering some impassioned reviews, and audiences everywhere will be able to catch the musical on Amazon Prime Video on September 3, 2021.

What is Cinderella about?
From writer and director Kay Cannon comes a modern retelling of Cinderella starring Camila Cabello as Cinderella herself. The movie musical also stars Billy Porter as Fabulous Godmother and Nicholas Galzitine as Prince Robert, as well as Idina Menzel as Vivian (the evil stepmother character in this iteration), Minnie Driver as Queen Beatrice, Pierce Brosnan as King Rowan, and James Corden as James. Cinderella will feature original, brand new songs like “Million to One,” and will also employ popular songs like “Somebody to Love” (coincidentally, this won’t be the first time the song has appeared in a Cinderella retelling, as it was the focus of one excellent scene in 2004’s Ella Enchanted) and “Seven Nation Army.”
From the trailer, it seems as though Cabello’s Cinderella is committed to pursuing her dream of running a dressmaking shop, Dresses by Ella, and runs from the prince out of fear of a life lived without purpose. We also get a glimpse of Billy Porter’s dazzling turn as the fairy godmother, as well as a brief look at comedians Romesh Ranganathan and James Acaster as mice turned into footmen alongside James Corden.
You can watch Cinderella on Amazon Prime Video on September 3, 2021.
