Camila Cabello Will Be Making Her Acting Debut In The New Cinderella Movie
Latinas can be princesses too. That’s the message that audiences are sending Disney after decades of zero representation. Now we’re seeing Latina characters in animated shows and films such as “Elena of Avalor” and the new movie that Lin-Manuel Miranda is currently working on. But what about a Latina princess in the flesh? We’re finally getting that too!
It’s been announced that singer Camila Cabello will star as Cinderella, a new feature film.
The new movie won’t stray too much from the original Disney animated film (released in 1950). However, details surrounding the plot is undisclosed for now. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new Cinderella movie will still include the protagonist as an orphaned young woman who is forced to live with her stepmother.
The publication is also reporting that the new movie will be a musical too, and we’re thrilled about that. How could we have a Cinderella movie without any singing especially if a real singer plays the lead role?
It’s also interesting that a new Cinderella film is underway because Disney released a feature film on Cinderella just a couple of years ago. That 2015 movie starred Lily James, but we can see why there’s a new one in the works — the new Cinderella has some influential backers.
James Corden conceived this new Cinderella version.
The late show host is producing the movie with his production company Fulwell73, along with his partner Leo Pearlman. We also love that Kay Cannon will be working on this movie. She’s directed “Blockers” and written “Pitch Perfect” along with other movies, including written for one of our favorite Latino shows, “Cristela.”
The 22-year-old Cuban star has yet to comment about this incredible news. But she did post this picture on her Insta-story.
Yes, we’re still catching our breathe too, girl.
