We all know the classic fairy tale about a girl who escapes life with her evil stepmother by finding a handsome prince with the help of her fairy godmother.

In this new musical, the lead character is a seamstress called Ella (Camila Cabello) who starts her own fashion boutique, Dresses by Ella. Her dreams are bigger than the world will allow, but with the help of her Fab G (Billy Porter’s updated fairy godmother) she is able to make her dreams come true.

The film incorporates pop songs from contemporary global artists and original songs by Cabello and Frozen star Idina Menzel, who plays the stepmother.
