The latest iteration of 'Cinderella', starring Camila Cabello as the put-upon heroine, is scrapping the theatrical debut it had originally planned.
2021's 'Cinderella' comes from the studio Sony, who have penned a deal with Amazon Prime to license the film.
They made the decision on the basis that movie theatre attendance has not returned to pre-pandemic levels; luckily, we can expect cinemas to re-open here in Ireland this June.
It's not the first Sony film to go to a streaming service rather than cinemas.
The movie studio sold animated musical 'Vivo' and Kevin Hart family drama 'Fatherhood' to Netflix.
'Cinderella' was due to hit cinemas this July.
The movie will now premiere worldwide on Prime, other than in China, to which Sony has retained rights.
What we know of the film so far, aside from Cabello playing Cinderella in her acting debut, is that it will be a musical.
It will incorporate pop songs from contemporary artists and original songs by Cabello.
We also know that Billy Porter is portraying Cinderella's fairy godparent while Idina Menzel is playing her evil stepmother.
Also starring are Nicholas Galitzine as Prince Robert, Pierce Brosnan as King Rowan and Minnie Driver as Queen Beatrice.
Kay Cannon ('Pitch Perfect') directs and from a script she penned.
'Cinderella' has been adapted for film on numerous occasions, particularly by Disney.
There's the 1950 animated classic movie, the 2015 live-action reboot with Lily James, and the 1997 TV movie starring Brandy and Whitney Houston.
There is currently no release date for 2021's 'Cinderella' on Amazon Prime.
