Cinderella 2021 Story:
As we all know that Cinderella is a classic tale. The story of this movie is in everybody’s mind.
Ella and her father live happily in a countryside house. When her father (unknowingly) brings home an evil stepmother with her two daughters. The father dies. And, Ella is now all by herself with an evil stepmother and two stepsisters. They eventually turn Ella into a housemaid (or someone who works for them). Encounter with an unknown man The only way out is the ball where the prince will choose his bride. And, eventually, it always ends with happily ever after.
This is the plot in all the Cinderella adaptations. The story more or less is going to be the same with cast changes, maybe some different sub-plots, and the overall execution.
What New We Can Expect?
This Cinderella (2021) is more like a musical adaptation of the classic fairytale (obviously, Camila Cabello is playing the role of Cinderella). The movie will feature a lot of songs (Ella will not merely cry but she’ll sing and cry). We can expect it to be similar to the musical adaptation of Beauty and The Beast (2017) starring Emma Watson. There are a few more musical adaptations of the Cinderella Story, one is starring Selena Gomez named Another Cinderella Story (2008) (It’s a good one) and The Slipper and The Rose (1978) starring Gemma Craven and Richard Chamberlin. We can say it is a trend going on, of turning the classic tale into musical versions.
The look, feel and theme of the movie are of Victorian Style (heavy fancy dresses, vintage houses). The dialogues will have a punch of humor and sarcasm. In different versions of Cinderella, Ella is portraying different roles as well. Like, a student working in a restaurant saving up for college fees (modern version) or as a house help (classic version). But, in this 2021 adaptation of Cinderella is working in a boutique (possibly taken over by her stepmother).
The teaser release was on 30th June 2021. The movie is going to release on 3rd September 2021 on the OTT platform Amazon Prime. We’ll soon get to see the trailer of the movie as well.
I hope you enjoyed reading, do let us know which one is your favorite adaptation of Cinderella.
