Netflix is developing a new animated movie with a twist on a classic fairytale. The upcoming musical animation puts a spotlight on two characters for a new story.
The new animated musical Steps will have Amy Poehler producing and Alyce Tzue making her directing debut. The story is a spin on the classic Cinderella story. Two stepsisters are overlooked for marriage by the prince and embark on an epic journey, realizing that their own perfect fairytales might be different from what they originally thought.
“Our step-sisters are a pair of young Asian immigrants to a fairytale world, and their journey navigating the pressures of their kingdom to ultimately arrive at their true dream is a story that resonates deep inside my heart.”
-Alyce Tzue, Steps Director
Also, Steps joins Netflix’s fast-growing original slate of animated features. The list includes the Oscar-nominated Klaus, Glen Keane’s Over the Moon and the fall 2021 comedy Back to the Outback.
Netflix has been producing fabtaatic original content for animation in recent years. Given the talent attached to the musical feature, Steps may be another hit for the streaming service. We will provide more details when new information becomes available. Let us know what you think of the upcoming project in the comments!
