A fairy tale always ends with the princess marrying the prince. But times have changed. The end of the fairy tale is now irrelevant, considering that women can now also be leaders. The change in the ending of the fairy tale also occurs in the latest Cinderella film with Camila Cabello as the main character. In the film, Camila Cabello doesn’t need a prince to save her. Camila Cabello, who plays Ella in the film, wants to continue her dream, not find a husband. The story was rewritten by Kay Cannon, who directed the 2021 film Cinderella as well as the Pitch Perfect series. The 2021 Cinderella film tells the story of an ambitious tailor named Ella who dreams of having her own clothing line and becoming a famous fashion designer.
“I have to make a living for myself,” says Ella’s character at the start of the three-minute clip. The clip also features Ella’s evil stepmother (played by Idina Menzel) and threatening to throw her out on the street. Of course, the film tells the obstacles that must be faced by Ella to achieve her dream. The film also features the figure of Billy Porter who is a fairy named “Fab G” with a genderless or non-binary identity. In one scene, just before Ella goes to the dance, Fab G waves a magic wand and dresses Cinderella not with a dress, but a trouser suit fit for a businessman.
Ella comes to the dance to get her gifts, not the prince’s love. “I have a dream that I must chase,” Ella says in the film. When the prince asked Ella if Ella would marry him and live in the palace, Ella’s answer was very surprising. “What about my job? I don’t want a life stuck waving from a royal box any more than a life locked up in a cellar,” says Ella. The trailer for the musical also features some dancing and singing by Camilla Cabello and Idina Menzel. Camila Cabello has also remake the song. “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” and “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” in this film
The new Cinderella film is no longer about true love but about empowering women who are often confined in a patriarchal culture. This film is also Camila Cabello’s first film debut in acting. Please note that this former member of the girl group Fifth Harmony has released several albums and won several major music awards. Friends, you must be looking forward to watching the 2021 Cinderella film. The film is slated to premiere on September 3, 2021 on Amazon Prime.
