Sophia Dilley, who is the Senior VP of development and production at Concord Originals, said in a statement: “Rodgers & Hammerstein elevated the already magical story of Cinderella with their iconic music that has attracted legends of screen and stage throughout its many beloved, award-winning iterations over the years.”
“Our partnership with Skydance and Nuyorican on this project is the first step of many towards our collective goal of championing timeless classics for a new generation, and Rachel is the perfect voice to expand upon this story in a contemporary way,” the statement continued.
The first television adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella first aired in 1957 on CBS, with Julia Andrews playing the young princess. The classic tale has been revived several times over the years. (Who could forget the iconic 1997 version starring Brandy and Whitney Houston?)
Is it too much to hope for a small cameo by J.Lo in the television series?
