The Cinderella story continues.
In advance of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella coming to Disney+ this Friday, the cast of the timeless 1997 musical has joined EW to reflect on the impact the project had — and how impossibly fun it was to make it.
On Thursday, Feb. 11, come have a ball watching stars Brandy (Cinderella), Paolo Montalban (Prince Christopher), Whoopi Goldberg (Queen Constantina), Victor Garber (King Maximillian), Jason Alexander (Lionel), Bernadette Peters (Stepmother), and Veanne Cox (Calliope) talk through little details about the movie like Goldberg insisting Queen Constantina be outfitted with real jewels from Harry Winston, how hard the late Natalie Desselle-Reid made everyone laugh, and of course, what it was like seeing Whitney Houston guide Brandy toward the right notes.
Catch a sneak peek of the reunion above, where the multicultural cast reacts to how their film has aged well, and Goldberg makes a frank comparison to another phenomenon, proclaiming, "We were Hamilton before Hamilton," which causes a very excitedly Brandy to quip: "I love that she can say everything that we want to say."
