Watch Billy Porter Slay as 'Cinderella's Fairy Godparent in New Teaser


The upcoming Amazon Prime Video musical film looks like the queer fairy tale of our dreams! 

Cinderella stans, rejoice! The first-look teaser trailer for the upcoming Amazon Prime Video musical just surfaced on the internet, and in it, we get to see Emmy-winning Pose star in action as the cinder girl's fierce and fabulous fairy godparent Fab G!

Like our sister publication PRIDE points out, the 30-second clip was not officially released by Amazon stateside just yet, but it seems to have leaked in countries outside of the U.S., giving eager American fans a quick look at what Billy and Camila Cabello's take on the classic fairy tale is going to be like.

This isn't the first time we've seen Porter rocking his magical digs, though! Last month, he shared also shared a first-look teaser image of him in character!

"Say hello to Fab G!" Billy wrote, sharing the absolutely gorgeous still from the forthcoming film.

We're learning more and more about the film as each month passes, and while we still have a lot of questions, what we do know (so far) is that it's going to be a musical and is based on an idea from James Corden, with writing and directing from Pitch Perfect's Kay Cannon. Besides Camila and Billy, Broadway legend Idina Menzel will be taking on the role of the wicked stepmother, so the movie already sounds like the queer fairytale retelling of our dreams.

"Magic has no gender," Porter said in a 2020 CBS News interview when talking about his excitement for the role. "We are presenting this character as genderless. At least that's how I'm playing it. And it's really powerful."

On how the next generation is already more than ready to see kind of representation in their favorite media, he continued:

"You know, this is a classic fairy tale for a new generation, and I think that the new generation is really ready. You know, the kids are ready. It's the grown-ups that are slowing stuff down."

Cinderella is scheduled to be released on Prime Video this September!
