The Camila Cabello Cinderella movie just unveiled its first teaser trailer on June 30, and it’s magical.
The story is familiar (in a comfortable way!) with just a few tweaks. Cabello stars in the title role, but in this adaptation, Cinderella is a dressmaker. That being said, she still can’t go to the ball the handsome prince (Nicholas Galitzine) is throwing—until her fairy godparent (played by Billy Porter) steps in. Cue the music, glitter, and magic. Oh, and some dry humor: “Do you want to go to that ball?” Porter’s character asks Cinderella, to which she replies, “Yes, I was just crying and singing about it, like, two minutes ago.”
Watch the trailer for yourself, below:
“#CinderellaMovie 😭😭😭 this was one of the most magical experiences of my life. I can’t wait for you to see it,” Cabello wrote on Twitter about the film.
“It was one of those things that felt like God handcrafted it for me and was, like, ‘Here you go.’” Cabello told Variety in 2019 about the movie. “I just couldn’t say no. It’s honestly a dream for me. And also a little bit terrifying.” On how she approached the role, she said, “Literally just listen and let your body react; let it do the work for you.… Feelings are so layered. I’m angry; I’m disappointed; I’m scared; so there’s no way that you can really act that. My big problem is being in my head a lot, overanalyzing and overthinking, to the point where it sucks the joy out of things that are joyous…. My acting coach, Anthony Meindl, taught me it’s all about the act of surrender and ‘the art of listening,’ as opposed to being in your head. That’s the only technique he has for acting, as simple as it is.”
The Camila Cabello Cinderella movie hits Amazon Prime on September 3.
