Cabello, a multi-platinum selling and Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, will be integrally involved in the music. "Cinderella" marks her acting debut.

The film is a musical comedy that reimagines the traditional "Cinderella" story, in which the heroine is an ambitious young woman whose dreams are bigger than the world will allow.

The movie is being produced by James Corden and Leo Pearlman through their Fulwell73 banner.

Based on the fairy tale "Cendrillon" by Charles Perrault, the story of a poor young orphan woman and her fairy godmother was the basis for Disney's 1950 animated drama "Cinderella". That film spawned two live-action remakes: 1997's iteration starring Brandy and Whitney Houston and Kenneth Branagh's 2015 version with Lily James.
