Amazon Studios has also set a release date for the musical film, slating “Cinderella” to open this September. Cabello, along with Idina Menzel, wrote original songs for the movie, and the two star alongside a cast that also includes Nicholas Galitzine, Minnie Driver, Billy Porter and Pierce Brosnan.

Producer James Corden and the filmmaking team have taken this beloved fairytale and revamped it with a fresh, empowering perspective that will resonate with audiences and families around the world. We couldn’t be more excited for our global customers to sing and dance along to director Kay Cannon’s reimagination of this classic story,” Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement.
