Camila Cabello’s ‘Cinderella’ will premiere directly on Amazon

Sony has reached an agreement with the platform to skip theaters and go streaming.

The box office figures are improving around the world, as indicated by hits of the caliber of Godzilla vs. Kong. Despite the persistence of the pandemic, viewers are once again in the mood to go to the movies, although certain Hollywood majors still resist taking risks. This is, for example, the case of Sony Pictures. The company lacks a streaming service to send its releases to, such as HBO Max or Disney +, so a few weeks ago it signed a substantial agreement with Netflix so that this platform would be the one to show its films when the time comes. This agreement would not begin until 2022, but films such as the recent The Mitchells against the machines or the future have been unofficially folded into it.

Netflix, however, and until next year, is not the only streaming service with which Sony is negotiating what to do to improve the viability of its films. Thus it has happened that his musical Cinderella, starring Camila Cabello, has just confirmed its incorporation into the Amazon Prime catalog. According to media such as The Hollywood Reporter, it occurs once the premiere of the film had been postponed from February 5 to June. The agreement now contemplates that the film skips the distribution in theaters and goes directly to streaming, although an exact date of when this will occur has not yet been given.

Cinderella has nothing to do with the exploits of the popular tale that Disney has made; in fact, it is running with its own modernization “from the MeToo era” directed and written by Kay Cannon, who has already signed the delicious #SexPact and wrote the scripts for Pitching the Note. The Cinderella libretto is written together with James Corden from an original idea by him, and it is assumed that the film will be assigned to the musical genre. We can confirm it based on Cannon’s relationship with Dando la nota, but also by the condition of some of his interpreters: Cabello is a famous Cuban singer, while Idina Menzel (who would play Cinderella’s stepmother) is a Broadway star.

The cast also includes the names of Billy Porter as the fairy godmother, Pierce Brosnan as the king, and Nicholas Galitzine as his son, the prince who falls in love with Cinderella. Despite the apparent proximity of the premiere, Sony has not yet revealed images of the film, but now that it has confirmed its landing on Amazon, it would not be unusual for them to arrive soon.
