We all know the story of Cinderella: trapped in an attic and wishing to go out for one night! Then comes a fairy godmother, who fulfils her want, and she is off to the ball and has the time of her life! Oh! So sweet and lovely. But, have you ever thought of the fairy godmother as a boy?
Well, that is what the remake of Cinderella is going to be about
A genderless Fairy Godmother!!
The remake of Cinderella, which will star Camila Cabello, will have a genderless Fairy Godmother!! We got the news from Billy Porter, who is going to star in the remake as well. When asked about the genderless concept, here is what the actor has to say, “Magic has no gender.”
We agree that Billy Porter! Surprisingly, Billy Porter is going to be the fairy Godmother for our new Cinderella. We are so excited about this change.
“It hit me when I was on the set last week, how profound it is that I am playing the Fairy Godmother- they call it the Fab G” stated the actor. With this news, we can assume that there will be lots of new surprises in the original Cinderella.
In the recent remake of the fairy-tale, we had Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother, and we loved her. With the new Cinderella, we would not only get a Fab- G, but also many norms of the society would be broken.
Why would we love Billy Porter as Fab-G?
There are many reasons as to why we all should love him. Firstly, he is an actor who has always been known for his outspoken thoughts. Not only that, but he would also justify the character of Fab-G and would show a new Cinderella to the youngsters.
Gone are the days when the princesses where the damsel in distress, they are now the warriors ready to achieve the world. Our new Cinderella will be such a warrior, and with Fab-G beside her, she has nothing to fear.
