Amazon finally releases the much-awaited trailer for Cinderella one month before its premiere. The official trailer features pop singer Camila Cabello as the orphaned princess.
Director Kay Cannon penned the story in 2019 and scheduled for a July release. Due to the pandemic, the plan for distribution changed. The movie is now set to grace the small screen next month.
The Original Cinderella
The classic fairy tale of Cinderella is known to many as the story of an orphaned girl who tries to survive the wrath of her evil stepmother and stepsisters. She meets a fairy godmother and helps her attend a royal ball where she meets her Prince Charming. Soon after, they lived happily ever after.
The 3-minute clip from the trailer shows Camila Cabello’s outstanding vocals in her first acting debut. It also reveals High Strung’s actor Nicholas Galitzine as Prince Robert and Broadway star Idina Menzel as the Evil Stepmother.
The show also features a stunning set design and a musical type genre with superb choreography. This is a never-before-seen in any of Cinderella’s live-action adaptations.
Adding Modern Twist
Cannon made adjustments to the story of Cinderella to create a fresh and modern take. The official trailer showed several major changes and more genuine surprises ahead await fans.
The 2015 movie adaptation of Cinderella starring Lily James also made changes, however, not too drastic as to alter the entire gist of the film.
Amazon will feature a bold and feisty Cinderella who strives to pursue her dreams of becoming a dressmaker. In the old tale, she runs away with her Prince Charming. The director also confirms that it will take a modern feminist approach. Another interesting twist also features the Stepmother forcing Cinderella to marry the Prince for her own gain.
The show will premiere on September 3, 2021 and is available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
