A Reimagined Cinderella Story to Launch New Disney Publishing Line For Adult Audiences

The classic Disney Princesses will be getting a contemporary spin with a new Disney Publishing Line with stories for adult audiences. First up, “If The Shoe Fits” – a reimagined Cinderella story.


As shared by TheHollywoodReporter: The classic Cinderella story gets a new look next year with the latest project from Disney Publishing, with a contemporary retelling of the fairy tale that brings everything up to date.

The official description of the book, If The Shoe Fits, runs as follows:

“From #1 New York Times best-selling author Julie Murphy comes the first in a brand-new adult series inspired by the classic fairy tale stories we all know and love, perfect for adult readers who crave contemporary, escapist rom-coms.”

“After having just graduated with a degree in shoe design, and trying to get her feet on the ground, Cindy is working for her stepmother, who happens to be the executive producer of America’s favorite reality show, Before Midnight. When a spot on the show needs filling ASAP, Cindy volunteers, hoping it might help jump-start her fashion career, or at least give her something to do while her peers land jobs in the world of high fashion.”


“Turns out being the only plus size woman on a reality dating competition makes a splash, and soon Cindy becomes a body positivity icon for women everywhere. What she doesn’t expect? That she may just find inspiration — and love — in the process. Ultimately, Cindy learns that if the shoe doesn’t fit, maybe it’s time to design your own.”

If The Shoe Fits will be released Aug. 3, 2021.
