Grammy-nominated Cabello plays Cinderella in her first-ever acting role, while the late-night host Corden, who is also a producer, is one of the mice. Billy Porter stars as the fairy godparent or “Fairy G”, while actress Idina Menzel takes on the role of the evil stepmother. There’s also Pierce Brosnan as King Rowan and Missy Elliot as a Town Crier.
Although it is a re-telling of the classic story, there is a modern twist to the plot (Warning: *spoilers ahead*).
The Cinderella in this film has been described in reviews by The Independent, Vulture, and NPR as a “Girlboss” version of the character, where she designs dresses. But, after falling in love with Prince Robert (Nicholas Galitzine), she has to choose between love and her work.
