With Amazon Prime Video bringing to the audiences a bold new take on Cinderella, it’s time to think if a princess needs a prince to ‘save her’?

With time bringing a paradigm shift, a huge change can be seen in the narrative and means by which stories are being told. Movies today are focusing on characters with a different lens, no more do we see stories where princess’ wait for their Prince Charming to whimsically appear and put an end to their misery.

It’s the need of the hour to make such films that send out a message of women empowerment. For instance, Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming Cinderella starring Camila Cabello is a familiar classic with a modern take where the princess is a rebel dreamer who encourages girls to write their own story, she will be chasing her dreams instead of Prince Charming.
