    The New "Cinderella" Movie Just Released Its First Trailer, And I'm Already Obsessed

    Billy Porter as a Fabulous Godmother? I'm sold.

    If you weren't already aware, we're getting another Cinderella movie later this year. It's a fresh modern take on the classic story, with a pretty amazing cast to boot.

    Well, feast your eyes on the trailer Amazon Prime Video dropped today, which gives a first look at Camilla and Nicholas, as well as Billy Porter as the fabulous Godmother (or "Fab G") and Idina Menzel as the evil stepmother.

    The movie will also star Pierce Brosnan as King Rowan, Minnie Driver as Queen Beatrice, Missy Elliott as a Town Crier, Beverley Knight in an unspecified role, and James Acaster, Romesh Ranganathan, and James Corden as footmen/mice. The original idea for the film came from James Corden who also produced Cinderella, with Kay Cannon writing and directing the movie.

    This Cinderella will be a bold take on the traditional story we all know. Ella – as she's now going by – is an ambitious young woman who dreams of becoming the next Chanel and opening her own dress-making business.

    But as we all know from the fairytale, Ella has to contend with her evil stepmother and wicked sisters, as well as an old-fashioned, provincial society that ~wants~ her to fail.

    Will a chance meeting at a ball with a handsome prince change her fortune? You'll have to watch and see if this original interpretation takes a Frozen-esque approach, and uproots the classic damsel-in-distress motif!

    The film also incorporates a myriad of pop covers (from the trailer I noted Janet's "Rhythm Nation" and Queen's "Somebody to Love") as well as original songs by Camila and Idina!

    Cinderella will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on 3rd September. I can't wait, can you?
