See Camilla Cabello 2021 “Cinderella” movie reviews from first viewers and how to stream it if you haven’t seen it.
The live-action movie with a modern twist stars Camila Cabello, singer and former member of Fifth Harmony, in the lead role.
In this latest adaptation of the Cinderella story, she is a talented dressmaker dreaming of opening her own store and establishing financial independence from her wicked stepmother.
The film, which was released on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, 3 September 2021, is already gathering some impassioned reviews.
Summary of the movie
According to the plot, Ella is an ambitious young woman who wants to establish her shop “Dresses by Ella” in her patriarchal society one day.
She catches the eye of Prince Robert in the guard-changing ceremony. He then visits her, pretending to be a commoner, and in turn, invites her for a ball.
Her stepmother tries to stop her from attending by ruining her dress, but her fairy godmother intervenes, and she gets to attend the ball. Ella meets the Queen, who sings her praises for her beautiful works and promises to show her off.
The Prince proposes to her, and she refuses. At the stroke of midnight, she had to leave, and the Prince steals her shoe to starts a search party for her afterwards.
Ella’s stepmother gives her hand to Thomas, the vegetable seller. While running from him, she meets the Prince, who takes her with him. Then they fall in love.
Cinderella reviews and reactions
The film comes from the mind of Kay Cannon, who also wrote 2015’s musical phenomenon “Pitch Perfect”. According to some reactions, “Cinderella” seems to be worth every hype.
Several takes underline the fact that the movie is a complete musical film, with as little dialogue as possible. The Daily Journal review reads in part, “the music is an element that blows this version of Cinderella out of the water.”
One viewer even rates the 2021 live-action movie over the animated one, she tweeted:
if I ever have kids the only version of Cinderella I’m making them watch is the one with Camilla Cabello

There are other famous stars featured in the film like Billy Porter as Fabulous Godmother and Nicholas Galzitine as Prince Robert, as well as Idina Menzel as Vivian (the evil stepmother character in this version), Minnie Driver as Queen Beatrice, Pierce Brosnan as King Rowan, and James Corden as James.
What Cannon notably brings into the script that was sorely lacking in the animated version is humour.
