Cinderella

Cinderella in purple ballgown, flanked by the other characters

Cinderella is a unique spin and colorful cinematography, but the music is not original which can be a good thing or bad thing!!!

What I Like:

-I really enjoyed the cinematography and the set designs, it was really colorful and bright and fun for the eyes
-The acting and singing from the actors were pretty good for the most part, I mean, can you go wrong with Camila Cabello and Idina Menzel

The So So:

-The story was practically Cinderella, but they did take some liberties in changing the story, some are good, like having the fairy godmother a guy which worked very well, and other liberties I can’t say without spoiling it, but there were other liberties which didn’t quite hit the mark for me
-There were some original songs which were nice, but a lot of the musical performances were from other songs we know, some were fun, but others didn’t quite work well, especially the final performances

What I Didn’t Like:

-It is still practically the same Cinderella story
-Why does James Corden have to be in every musical?

Overall:

It is a musical from a classic story. If you love the story you will either enjoy it, or hate it. Personally, it is not bad, but not great either. It did take some liberties, and it either worked or didn’t. The music was great, but I like the original songs better than the remakes of the other classic songs. It is colorful and fun, but nothing really blew me away. So take it as you will when you watch it on Amazon Prime!!!
