Brandy Norwood stepping back into one of her most iconic roles after 25 years? It’s possible!
More than two decades after starring in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella for ABC’s Wonderful World of Disney, Norwood is dusting off her crown to play Cinderella once again in The Pocketwatch, a new movie in the Descendants franchise, coming soon to Disney+.
The Pocketwatch will return viewers to Auradon and the Isle of the Lost before taking them “through the rabbit hole to the hostile unincorporated territory of Wonderland, a magical, mysterious place made famous in Alice in Wonderland,” per the movie’s official description.
The story centers around “polar opposites” Chloe, the daughter of Cinderella, and Red, the daughter of the Queen of Hearts. The unlikely duo meets “at a momentous celebration in Auradon when unexpected chaos breaks out. In order to prevent an impending coup, they must join forces to travel back in time, via a magical pocket watch created by the Mad Hatter’s son, to stop an event that would lead to grave consequences.”
Jennifer Phang is directing The Pocketwatch from a script written by Dan Frey and Russell Sommer.
