Perfect casting? Watch the ‘Cinderella’ trailer and see for yourself
The story of Cinderella seems to have been around as long as there have been fairytales. We know how it goes by this point. The wicked stepmother, the cruel stepsisters, a young & virtuous woman forced into servitude, a fairy godmother, a prince, and a shoe left behind at the stroke of midnight. Inevitably, it all ends in a happily-ever-after sort of scenario.
The story has been adapted so many times over the years. The latest one is an Amazon movie starring Camila Cabello as the titular Cinderella with a cast of Idina Menzel, Billy Porter, and Pierce Brosnan backing her up. The first trailer for the movie was released. Naturally, people had some thoughts about whether this jukebox Cinderella was something that they wanted to see. Perfect casting? Or no thanks?
Let’s take a look at the reactions on Twitter.

No one can beat it
This one remains the best.
how did they see cinderella escape her abusive household just so she can enjoy one night to herself and also happen to catch a prince’s attention and go “what she really needs is to be a proud business owner”

So she’s a seamstress #girlboss now?
There is a story about getting out of an abusive situation here, you know? But, sure, girlboss Ella or whatever.

Apparently, some don’t like the casting of Cinderella.

It keeps happening!
If there’s a fairytale movie casting, then does James Corden just . . . show up and not leave?
I am not watching any Cinderella story with that lil girl that called Normani the N-word. NO THANK YOU.

There’s no weird eldritch horror so we don’t think it’s Riverdale
