The classic tale of Cinderella is getting a makeover at Amazon Studios in this contemporary take on the children’s story with modern-day music.
The musical marks the acting debut for popular pop star Camila Cabello as the title character as she navigates her life with her stepmother, stepsisters, Prince Charming, and being a female entrepreneur.
Here’s the official synopsis:
From Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect), Cinderella is a modern musical with a bold take on the story you grew up with. Our ambitious heroine (Camilla Cabello) has big dreams and with the help of her Fab G, she perseveres to make them come true. Cinderella has an all-star cast including Idina Menzel (Frozen), Minnie Driver (Circle of Friends, The Riches), James Corden (The Late Late Show with James Corden, Into the Woods), Nicholas Galitzine (The Beat Beneath My Feet, Handsome Devil), Billy Porter (Pose, The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy), and Pierce Brosnan (The World Is Not Enough, Mamma Mia!).

“While so many elements of the classic Cinderella tale are timeless, I really wanted to reach a new generation through contemporary touches on many of the aspects that felt outdated. The opportunity to turn some of those classic tropes on their heads was exciting to me, and I couldn’t wait to retell this in a way that’s more relatable to what girls, including my almost-eight-year-old daughter, and young women are going through today,” stated writer and director Kay Cannon. “Our Cinderella is not just some pretty face waiting to be saved by a prince. She’s vocal, active, fearless, and witty; she has dreams and craves independence. Her main priority is her career in a time when women couldn’t have one. Our Cinderella is someone that parents can watch their kids look up to in a new way, and my hope is that families will laugh, dance, and sing while watching this movie together.”
Cinderella streams on Amazon Prime on September 3rd.
