Cabello plays the title role in the movie Amazon Prime Video – its heroine is Ella, the girl who will go to the ball thanks to the help of Fab G (fab for “wonderful / wonderful” in English, at the same time it is a reference to Fairy Godmother – Fairy Godmother). In the musical, we will hear covers of famous pop hits, as well as songs specially written for production. Apart from Cabello and Porter, they will be sung by, among others Idina Menzel, who has had the status of a Broadway star for years, and her song from “Frozen” brought world fame – it is she who performs the original version of “I have this power”. Here Menzel will play the stepmother.
The new Cinderella will not be submissive – see the trailer
The prince will be played by Nicholas Galitzine, and his parents will be played by Pierce Brosnan and Minnie Driver. As if the cast were no longer impressive, James Corden, John Mulaney and Romesh Ranganathan were also on board.
This film aims to show Cinderella not as a submissive girl, but as an ambitious young girl who has dreams beyond ordinary life in a small town. The Fairy Godmother will help her fulfill them.
When Porter talked about his role a few months ago, he said:
It’s not about sex, it’s not about sexuality or gender. It’s about magic, being someone’s Godmother, father, person, whatever you want to call it.
Cabello, showing fans the trailer for the film, wrote that it was one of the most magical experiences of her life.
Kay Cannon (“Pitch Perfect”) is responsible for the script and direction. The premiere of the new version of “Cinderella” is scheduled for September 3 on Amazon Prime Video.
