Sony’s Cinderella musical directed by Kay Cannon and starring Camila Cabello, Idina Menzel, Billy Porter, Nick Galitzine, Minnie Driver and Pierce Brosnan, will now release on Amazon Video. No premiere date has been set yet, but the film will most likely be made available later this year.
In October, 2020, Idina Menzel confirmed that “[she and Camila] both have original songs as well.”
The film is the latest major studio film to launch on a streamer amid the ongoing fallout of the pandemic. With the box officeback and running, this summer’s theatrical release calendar is particularly crowded when it comes to family fare.
Throughout the pandemic, Sony has sold off a number of its movies to streamers.
The studio will reserve certain licensing rights to Cinderella, similar to other deals it has structured.
