'A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song' hits DVD

Posted on

A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song, starring Pretty Little Liars’ Lucy Hale and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince‘s Freddie Stroma (he played Cormac McLaggen, who fancies Hermione), arrives on DVD today, and I couldn’t be happier. If I stumble upon the 2004 original, starring Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray, or the first sequel, 2008’s Another Cinderella Story, starring Selena Gomez and Drew Seeley, on ABC Family, I have to stop and watch. They represent the happy ending I never got in high school, and sometimes (like after seeing One Day in theaters, which is when I watched Once Upon a Song), you need to see that.

Below, watch an exclusive clip. It’s not a musical number — Hale’s character is forced by her stepmother (Missi Pyle) to be the singing voice for her wicked stepsister so she can win a recording contract — but it is a charming girl-caught-outside-naked moment. Then, tell us which teen franchise you’re secretly a fan of. (Sorry, Twilight and Harry Potter don’t count.)
