Princess stories are undergoing a major, much-needed update — and the upcoming Cinderella remake is no exception.
While a Disney live-action reboot with Lily James and Cate Blanchett was released only four years ago in 2015, this Sony version produced by James Corden is going to be a whole new take on the classic story.
Hollywood is choosing to be more inclusive in its storytelling, whether it be with an all-black superhero cast in Black Panther, Halle Bailey taking on the role of Ariel in The Little Mermaid, or a celebration of African heritage and black actors in the new Lion King.
Now the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella has been given a fabulous new makeover with Pose star Billy Porter.
Musicality is obviously going to play a huge role in the reboot, with stars like Cabello, Porter, and possibly Menzel.
In an interview with ET, Cabello talked about this role being a dream come true. "It's going to be a remake of it that I relate [to]," Cabello said. "I'm really happy we're at a point now in culture where — Aladdin or The Little Mermaid — little girls can see themselves represented, and I think that is so important and it's about time."
