The writing duo is set to create a Disney live-action musical comedy centering on the evil stepsisters — Anastasia and Drizella, from the animated classic Cinderella. The musical comedy will be a re-imagining of the fairytale from their perspective. Anastasia and Drizella join a new cadre of classic Disney villains that have gotten the stand-alone live-action treatment, including Sleeping Beauty‘s Maleficent and the upcoming feature Cruella, which stars Emma Stone as the evildoer from 101 Dalmations.
