Cinderella fans hit out at new Amazon movie over plot change – ‘Gone too far’

Next month Amazon Prime Video will release a new and improved version of the Cinderella story. Camila Cabello plays Cinderella – known as Ella – a poor young woman who strives to build up her own clothing business. When she is visited by her Fabulous Godmother (Billy Porter), Ella is granted a chance to attend the King’s ball in a stunning dress and glass slippers. The trailer, which was released this week, shows Ella being asked to become a princess by Prince Robert (Nicholas Galitzine), prompting her to turn down his offer in favour of her business.

Ella can be seen saying: “What about my work? I don’t want a life stuck waving from a royal box.

“I need more than a life confined to a basement.”

Fans of the classical tale were not too happy by this change.

Speaking out on Twitter, one wrote: “Now why would Cinderella who was practically a slave WANT to work some more instead of live in a palace where she can use their resources to help the townspeople omfg the girlbossification of classics has gone too far.” (sic)

Another agreed: “Amazon evil as hell they tryna feed us a story where a girl who is treated as a slave values her ‘work’ more than her freedom GOODBYEEEE.” (sic)

A third concurred: “Like the whole point is she’s being abused by her stepmother making her work … why would she give up her ticket out of that life.” (sic)

Although the drastic change in the show has divided viewers, many are still very excited about the upcoming movie.

One gushed: “I cannot wait to see @Camila_Cabello as Cinderella in #CinderellaMovie. It’s going to be so great!! I can feel it!”

A third simply added: “Camila as Cinderella??? omg yes yes yes!!!!” (sic)

A lot of support was also given to Porter’s version of the Fabulous Godmother – also known as Fab G.

In a recent interview the actor behind Fab G, Billy, spoke out about being “honoured” to join the refresh of the classic tale.

Billy said: “[Director] Kay [Cannon] looked at the Fairy Godmother and said: ‘It’s time to shake it up!’

“And I get to benefit and portray a character for today’s generation to look up to and be entertained and inspired by.”

The Pose star added: “We’ve come a long way and I am grateful that I was able to live long enough and stay in the game long enough to experience this life the way it is.

“Anything is possible. I love that there’s a world where all of the queer artists can exist. When I got into this business in the 80s, it was impossible to dream, but now we can dream the impossible.” (Via TODAY)

Billy is in good company, as Cinderella also introduces James Bond star Pierce Brosnan as King Rowan.

Ella’s evil stepmother is played by Wicked’s Idina Menzel, while the footmen/mice are played by James Corden, James Acaster and Romesh Ranganathan.

Cinderella hits Amazon Prime Video on September 3, 2021.
