film debut, as well as a new release month
Writer-director Kay Cannon, best known for creating the ‘Pitch Perfect’ franchise, has written and directed the ‘Cinderella’ retelling.
Unlike the fairytale, this retelling will reportedly have modern unique twists and a fresh, empowering perspective that centres on an orphan who longs to meet her Prince Charming.
Cannon’s take on the classic fairytale will reportedly have a soundtrack of pop song covers and original tracks by Cabello and Idina Menzel, who plays her evil stepmother.
‘Cinderella’, will dodge theatrical release and go for a digital premiere on a streaming platform. Although the film was initially slated for a July release in cinemas, the makers decided to opt for an OTT release due to the less footfall in theatres amid the coronavirus pandemic.
