Disney has delayed the release of the upcoming Disney+ Original film, “Sneakerella”. During last month’s, Disney+ Day, it was revealed that the film would be coming to the streaming service on February 18th 2022.
However, the coming soon page for “Sneakerella” has been updated and now shows the date, May 13th 2022. This date has been updated for users in multiple countries including the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. As another Disney+ Original film, “The Ice Age Adventures Of Bulk Wild” also recently had a release date change, but that was only in some countries in Europe and across the Asia/Pacific region.
This new original film is set in the avant-garde street-sneaker subculture of New York City, “Sneakerella” is a high-energy, music-driven movie that puts a contemporary twist on the “Cinderella” fairy tale.
El is an aspiring sneaker designer from Queens who works as a stock boy in the shoe store that once belonged to his late mother. He hides his artistic talent from his overburdened stepfather and two mean-spirited stepbrothers who constantly thwart any opportunity that comes his way. When El meets Kira King, the fiercely independent daughter of legendary basketball star and sneaker tycoon Darius King, 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. El is now ready to lace up and dream big.
