The movie follows the up and booming trend of being a musical. With songs like Million to one, shining star, Whatta man, Perfect, and many more, this movie is a dream come true for music lovers.
With the voices of Camilla Cabello, Nicholas Galitzine, and Idina Menzel dominating this musical album, the songs are a show stopper. This 2021 version of the story is a musical version of the classic fairy directed by Kay Cannon.
Following the success of musicals in the past such as Mamma Mia, La La Land and Hamilton, in Cinderella 2021, some of the songs do not fit well with the theme of the scene, the movie tries to incorporate the musical aspect to its best. Singer Camilla Cabello debuts in the movie and adds to the enchantment of the songs.
The classic tale has been musically adapted by Rodgers and Hammerstein previously and the current new release is a feather to the cap of the earlier made musical versions of the same.
While the movie tries to maintain the originality of the story, the main focus falls on the musical numbers and the plot revolves around this. The movie is an addition to the previously made ‘Cinderella musicals’ that includes a Broadway production.
In conclusion, the 1hr 53m movie is filled with toe-tapping musical numbers.
