Although we do not know anything of the plot, Shannon told Entertainment Weekly in an interview, “I just felt like it was a great opportunity to show this loved, iconic character that is Cinderella in a way that’s more relatable to what girls and young women in particular are going through, where they can really see themselves.”
She added, “She’s going to surprise everyone, because nobody’s ever seen her act before. She’s so fantastic. She’s so good, and she’s so natural, and just funny and beautiful and really, really talented.” Sounds like the shoe fits.
Cinderella was earlier going to be a theatrical release from Sony, but was later acquired by Amazon. It will now release on Amazon Prime Video in September.
