FILM: Another Cinderella Story..The Musical

Selena Gomez ("Wizards of Waverly Place"), a Disney by-product, will star in her first film. Although the title is Another Cinderella Story, it isn't exactly the sequel to Hilary Duff's A Cinderella Story.

Since there are so many films that are based on the pauper-to-princess formula, one must question what sets this film apart from the others. Gomez's tale has actually been infected with the new teen movie trend of being part musical. It is, in fact, Cinderella meets Step Up. Yes, she's playing the overworked chore-slave of her step mom and sisters, but she finds sanctuary in a dance studio. One night she meets a fellow dancer (Andrew Seeley from High School Musical Concert Tour) at a masked ball and when the clock strikes midnight, she drops her iPod instead of her glass slipper (or her cell phone like Duff did). It turns out that this dancer is actually a professional singer, and in order to find her, he holds a dance competition with the chance to appear in his music video as the prize. Watch the trailer:

The film will be released on video September 4th.
