Cinderella will finally introduce Camila Cabello as the new actress to portray the Disney princess.
Cinderella is now a step closer to its release date. Prior to that, the team recently showed the first look of Cabello as the new princess.
Through a press release by Amazon, the streaming giant announced that the most-awaited movie will arrive in September. The news came alongside first-look photos of the cast members.
In one snap, the 24-year-old Crying in the Club singer acts as the simple Cinderella before the transformation. The other shows Cabello and her on-screen beau, Nicholas Galitzine, who plays the role of Prince Robert.
Apart from dropping the first photoset, the update also pledged to bring a more contemporary retelling. Fans noticed this development as Billy Porter’s fairy godmother role received a more modern name Fab G.
“Producer James Corden and the filmmaking team have taken this beloved fairytale and revamped it with a fresh, empowering perspective that will resonate with audiences and families around the world,” Amazon Studios head, Jennifer Salke, said in the statement as quoted by Screen Rant.
Salke and the whole Cinderella team then expressed their excitement to bring the reimagination of the classic fairytale story.
What Fans Should Know About the Film
Apart from Cabello and Galitzine, several award-winning stars will join the ensemble cast members.
Idina Menzel (Cinderella’s stepmother), Pierce Brosnan (King Rowan), Minnie Driver (Queen Beatrice), Maddie Baillio (stepsister 1), Charlotte Spencer (stepsister 2), John Mulaney, James Corden, and Romesh Ranganathan joined the list, among others.
Meanwhile, Menzel will also sing original songs for the film along with Cabello herself. Some of the confirmed songs are Beyonce’s Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It), Chic’s Good Times, and Eurythmics’ Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).
The team of filmmakers also made the adaptation of the 1997 Rober and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
Kay Cannon led the team as the director and writer. Corden, Leo Pearlman, Shannon McIntosh, and Jonathan Kadid served as the producers.
The new development came two years after Columbia Pictures first announced the musical retelling of the classic story. During that time, the company already confirmed Cannon as the showrunner.
After a few months, the team began the principal photography. However, in March 2020, they decided to suspend the filming due to the sudden arrival of the coronavirus pandemic.
Fortunately, Cinderella resumed the filming in August 2020 and completed the whole project the following month.
