NEW MUSIC: CINDERELLA ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE CAST & NICHOLAS GALITZINE | SOMEBODY TO LOVE
26-year-old actor Nicholas Galitzine shows off his pipes in the first song released from the upcoming Cinderella movie. He stars as Prince Robert in the film, belts out “Somebody To Love” by Queen. Epic Records and Amazon Studios announced that the soundtrack will be released on Sept. 3, timed to the premiere of the film in select theaters and on Amazon Prime Video. The 14 tracks will feature Galitzine, Cabello as Cinderella, Idina Menzel as stepmother Vivian, Billy Porter as genderless fairy godparent Fab G, and Minnie Driver as Queen Beatrice, on top of Cabello in the title role and Galitzine as Prince Robert. Among the pop perennials being adapted for use in the musical is Madonna’s “Material Girl” performed by Menzel and Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” in a medley with Des’ree’s “You Gotta Be” as a large ensemble number. Kay Cannon wrote and directed the film of the “Pitch Perfect” trilogy and presents an updated twist on the classic fairy tale. Cinderella is still an orphan forced to live with an evil stepmother and sisters. Still, this time she’s less concerned with marrying a prince than she is about jump-starting her career as a fashion designer — she even designs her own gown for the royal ball. The role marks Cabello’s screen debut.
