'Cinderella': Release Date, Cast, Trailer, and Plot

We all know the classic fairytale of Cinderella, a young girl who is mistreated by her step-family but finds love with Prince Charming after her foot fits into the glass slipper she lost at the end of the ball.

Amazon Prime Video is hoping to give the folk tale a modern twist for the new generation.

The film is the first major live-action remake of the story to be made since Kenneth Branagh's 2015 live-action flick starring Lily James and Richard Madden as Cinderella and Prince Charming.

And Newsweek can now reveal everything you need to know about the film, including cast, plot, and release date.

When Is Cinderella Out?

On August 27, Amazon Prime Video announced via Twitter that the film would be released on the streaming service worldwide on September 3rd.

Promoting the film ahead of its release, the VOD platform wrote in a Tweet: "If it's a Million to One, @camila_cabello is gonna be that one. #CinderellaMovieis coming to @primevideo September 3."
