Carrying on with the Disney+ goody bag, Disney has debuted the trailer for the Cinderella reimaging ‘Sneakerella.’
Set in the avant-garde street-sneaker subculture of New York City, the film introduces El (Jacobs), an aspiring sneaker designer from Queens who works as a stock boy in the shoe store that once belonged to his late mother.
El hides his artistic talent from his overburdened stepfather and two mean-spirited stepbrothers who constantly stomp on any opportunity that comes his way. When El meets Kira King (Underwood), the fiercely independent daughter of the legendary basketball star and sneaker tycoon Darius King (Salley), sparks fly as the two bond over their mutual affinity for sneakers. With a little nudge from his best friend and a sprinkle of Fairy Godfather magic, El finds the courage to use his talent to pursue his dream of becoming a ‘legit’ sneaker designer in the industry.
The film stars Chosen Jacobs (“It”) and Lexi Underwood (“Little Fires Everywhere”), alongside four-time NBA Champion John Salley.
