With such innovations, the makers want to modernize the fairy tale genre - and if they succeed, the film should stand out strongly from the Disney competition. Pop star Camila Cabello, known for songs like "Havana" and "Señorita" (alongside Shawn Mendes), was cast for the lead role. She will also sing some songs in the film that were specially written for the remake. Her stepmother also has a powerful voice: she is played by Idina Menzel, who lends her voice to Princess Elsa in the English original in "Die Eiskönigin – Vollig unfrozen".
It also stars TV host James Corden, singer Minnie Driver and teen heartthrob Nicholas Galitzine, the latter as the prince. Ex-James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan embodies his dad, the king. Composer and playwright Billy Porter has also taken on the role of fairy godmother. In the film, this classic fairy tale character will be named Fab G and will be shown as a genderless being.
Kay Cannon is the director and screenwriter. A fitting choice, as she has already written the screenplays for all the films in the "Pitch Perfect" series. Your new project promises a lot. It will be interesting to see whether all of this will be complied with.
