Camila Cabello, the Senorita singer, is hitting the brand new movie, Cinderella. The movie is making its debut on September 3 on Amazon Prime and is not the exact remake of the hit Disney animation film. Camila’s version is completely different and has been built around an all-star cast filled with renowned people, right from Broadway to music superstars. So what should you consider while thinking of the remake of this iconic movie? Well, here’s everything you wanted to know about Camila Cabello’s Cinderella.
All About the Trailer
The first official trailer has unleashed its magic and there is magic galore. Cinderella wants to open her new shop as a fashion designer, but she is unable to do so. However, because of Fab G, (Billy Porter), her dreams may finally come out to be true.
Amazon Prime just announced its official trailer on Twitter, one month before the film makes its debut on the streaming platform. The singer-songwriter has teamed up with Amazon Prime for the live-action remake of the perennial fairytale. It looks set on a huge pedestal and boasts a huge star cast too.
What is the Cinderella’s Story All About?
We may all know about Cinderella, but this movie spins a new yarn on the classic tale. The writer-director Kay Cannon has her own take on the classic story as she wanted to modernize and make Cinderella a girl with a voice of her own.
Cannon added that it was a great opportunity to show the much-loved character in a modern light and show what girls and young women are going through. We still don’t know the plot of the film, but we do expect to see a lot of things right from a glamorous makeover, romance, a godparent, and of course foot-tapping musical numbers and Camilla’s magical voice.
The Cast of Cinderella
Camila Cabello, as we have mentioned, fits into the ballerinas of Cinderella, apart from the Frozen fame, Idina Menzel who plays the role of her stepmother. Billy Porter takes on the role of the gender-neutral fairy godparent, Fab G.
The film also has Nicholas Galitzine who starred in the movie, The Watcher In The Woods, as Prince Charming, the suave Pierce Brosnan as King Rowan, and Minnie Driver as Queen Beatrice. James Corden, also producing the movie, plays the cameo as a mouse.
The Trailer as We Saw it
In the trailer, we see Cinderella grinding hard to open her own dress shop. Of course, she still has to wear glass slippers like the original fairytale. What we liked about the trailer was when she asked Fab G to make the slippers more comfortable, he deadpans ‘even magic has its limits’.
Cinderella in a pantsuit? Well, you could see that too. Clearly, she is a Cinderella who is in with the times. Camilla first shared the trailer on her Instagram account and intrigued her fans immediately. The scale, the colors, the magnificent costumes – everything was gorgeous and spectacular. The dice have been rolled, but we are wondering if the film will live up to the hype and hoopla. Well, we certainly hope so.
The Changes We Spotted
The first part of the Cinderella trailer showed the usual things of how Cindy has a difficult life, the stepmother and the sister’s demeanor is awful, and Porter’s Fairy Godmother makes a grand introduction.
However, Cinderella met her prince and things took a different turn. The film focuses on how girls should pursue their dreams and Cindrella’s is to become a dressmaker. The modern Cinderella makes her Prince Charming wait as getting married is not her end goal.
It’s a modern, feminist approach to the classic fairytale and one that every girl will relate to. There’s also something different that we noted in the attitude of the stepmother towards Cinderella’s relationship with the prince. At one point the stepmother actually coerces Cinderella to marry Robert for their family’s benefit.
Romeo and Juliet, Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, Pride and Prejudice, and Cinderella share one specific trait: they’re all exceptional silver screen adaptations that are unique in execution and cater to several timeless themes. While Box Office trends are constantly changing, people never get tired of watching classic tales, with or without a modern twist to them. We guess it would be the same for the new Cinderella.
