I never get tired of fairytales, especially when they're adapted into movie musicals! The live-action Disney remakes are a good example. I'm not surprised they did well at the box office. Personally, however, I liked the recent Cinderella movie more. The one that stars Camilla Cabello, Billy Porter, and Idina Menzel.
It reminded me of the 1997 version that starred Brandy and Whitney Houston. Of course, that one was better since it had such a legendary cast member, but in my opinion, this one ain't half bad either! And considering this 2021 film cast Broadway icons like Menzel and Porter, as a theater geek, I just had to watch it. No, I also had to meet the cast and ask them for their autographs too. Since I already live in LA and they were holding a red carpet premiere for the film, I decided to go and try my luck.
So that I had something for the cast to sign, I asked my British friend if I can get her movie posters. She wasn't a fan of the film, per se, but she was a huge stan for its British cast. Since she had connections, she was able to get her posters signed by Peirce Brosnan and Minnie Driver. She didn't even care to get the American stars' autographs so she wasn't interested in going with me to the premiere. She did, however, sent me a few copies of her signed posters and wished me luck.
As you'd expect, the night was a glittering affair. Camilla Cabello looked every inch of a modern-day princess, Nicholas Galitzine was very dapper, and Billy Porter & Idina Menzel's presences were simply palpitating. I had to calm myself down every time they posed for the camera. They looked so perfect, I literally died right then and there!
I'm kidding, of course, because I was alive and well when I asked them to sign my posters. To no one's surprise, everyone was so nice and friendly. I was almost moved to tears at how approachable Idina Menzel was. She's an effing legend yet she was so down-to-earth! Ugh! How could anyone be so perfect!? And then there was Billy Porter. Fabulous from head to toe, I wished she was my fairy godmother! Or my mother!
That entire night honestly felt like a dream. If I didn't have these autographed posters with me, I wouldn't have believed that it was real. But in fact, it was! I must have my own fairy godmother out there making my wishes come true.
Please note: Our inventory is limited as we may have only received a few posters in total. Most of our items are obtained from film premieres, studios, and from autographed hounds such as the one in the story above.
