The Story

Welcome to Belleville! The most in-your-face beautiful town in the history of the world, populated only with the most beautiful people to ever grace the Earth. The only person adamantly refusing to live in the fairy tale is Cinderella. Loud-mouthed and dripping with disdain, Cinderella is waiting for a chance to escape. It doesn’t help that her only friend, Prince Sebastian, has suddenly become the heir to the throne after his elder brother Prince Charming mysteriously disappeared.

After a PR disaster for Belleville, the Queen decides on a grand distraction in the form of a royal wedding. All looks lost until Cinderella meets the Godmother, who can fix any problem with a little incision and a couple of broken ribs. Watch as Cinderella finds the answer where she has been refusing to look: becoming the beauty that everyone has always told her to be.
