Idina Menzel will star in Sony’s Cinderella movie musical, Billboard has learned. Menzel will portray the evil stepmother.

Camila Cabello is set to play the titular princess, and will provide music for the film, with Kay Cannon directing. 

The Hollywood Reporter previously confirmed that Billy Porter will play the fairy godmother. James Corden and Leo Pearlman, partners at Fulwell 73, will produce. (Valence Media is an investor in Fulwell 73, and is also the parent company of Billboard.)

Menzel is also set to star in Disney’s Frozen II, in theaters Nov. 22, and her new holiday album is out now.
