Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, the beloved 1997 TV movie that starred Brandy and Whitney Houston, is officially coming to Disney Plus. We’ve been waiting a loooong time for a new chance to see this, not to mention, Brandy herself, who urged Disney to pick up the rights to the project last summer.
Special message from Brandy! 💙 this tweet to be reminded when Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella makes its royal entrance to #DisneyPlus this Friday, February 12. #Cinderella1997

“Disney can come on up and scoop up Cinderella. That would be awesome,” she said at the time.
Recently, Brandy reunited with another co-star from the film, Whoopi Goldberg, while appearing on The View to announce the news. In addition to being a fan favorite, the musical movie was also a critical success, earning 7 Emmy nominations in 1998. The film will join the Disney Plus “Celebrate Black Stories” collection alongside Soul, Black Is King, Black Panther and Hidden Figures.
