When ‘Cinderella’ arrives on Amazon’s Prime Video in the Fall, it’ll see Billy Porter star alongside Camila Cabello as a reimagined incarnation of the Fairy Godmother.
Ahead of the film’s arrival, EW has given the first look at the star’s sparkling role in the flick and additional details.
Full story below…
Per the publication, the movie’s writer-director Kay Cannon set out to modernize the iconic tale.
Part of that process includes lead Cabello’s Cinderella being “vocal and active, [someone who] craves independence and has dreams and wants to follow them.”
It also saw Emmy winning ‘Pose’ actor Porter given free reign in his role as Fab G.
According to Cannon, the star was given the autonomy “to make it Billy Porter.”
Fitting because she says she wrote the role specifically for the 51-year-old – whose casting she asserts was the “easiest thing” in the film’s creation.
Operating from the standpoint that “magic has no gender,” Porter’s Fab G is a supernatural being who stands for being true to oneself, and who transcends the regimented labels humans so often apply to themselves.
‘Cinderella’ arrives on Amazon’s Prime Video in September.
