The first teaser trailer for the new Cinderella starring Camila Cabello in her first major acting role as the title character. The 30-second trailer shows Cinderella — or “Ella” — as an aspiring seamstress who wants the world to know her name,. singing about her wish to go to the ball. A brief scene follows her genderless fairy godparent Fab G, played by Billy Porter, appearing to her, ready to make her dreams come true — to which Cinderella replies, “Yes, I was singing and crying about it like two minutes ago.”
The film features an all-star cast: singer Idina Menzel stars as Cinderella’s stepmother, comedians John Mulaney, Romesh Ranganathan, and James Corden portray the mice and transfigured footmen, and Missy Elliott plays the role of the Town Crier. Pierce Brosnan and Minnie Driver play the king and queen of the kingdom, and Prince Charming will be portrayed by English actor Nicholas Galitzine, best known for the Netflix horror series Chambers and The Craft: Legacy.
Cinderella was originally scheduled to be released in theaters on February 5, 2021, but the date was pushed back to July 16. However, Sony ultimately decided to sell the film’s rights to Amazon, and the film will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video on September 3.
