Camilla Cabello in Cinderella (2021)

Light-hearted and full of grit, this week we have a solid selection of films and series coming to the small screen, including a live-action remake of Cinderella on Amazon Prime Video, crime-comedy series Only Murders in the Building on Disney+, and much, much more. You won’t want to miss them this week as August transforms into September! ~Cassandra Coleman

Cinderella – Ella (Camila Cabello) lives as a servant to her stepmother (Idina Menzel) and stepsisters. All she wants is to become a dress designer and start her own business. When she hears of a grand ball that’s being thrown for Prince Robert (Nicholas Galitzine) at the palace, she’s not interested. That is, until she realizes she could meet people there who might be interested in her dress designs. When her stepmother ruins the dress she’d made to attend the ball, Ella is rescued by her Fairy Godmother (Billy Porter). Coming to Amazon Prime Video September 3.

Only Murders in the Building – True crime-obsessed strangers Mabel (Selena Gomez), Charles (Steve Martin), and Oliver (Martin Short) are brought together when a murder occurs in their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building. Becoming involved in the case, the trio commences their own investigation to find the killer. Documenting their findings in a podcast, pressure mounts to get to the bottom of the crime when truths about the building’s history and lies told by each person are exposed. Premiering on Disney+ Star August 31 with new episodes releasing weekly.

Afterlife of the Party – Social butterfly Cassie (Victoria Justice) tragically dies during her birthday week. To her surprise, she is given a second chance when her temporary guardian angel Val (Robyn Scott) tells her she has an opportunity to make things right in her afterlife by reconnecting with loved ones. Cassie is given five days to right her wrongs with people from her past, and success or failure will determine where she spends the rest of her days. Watch it on Netflix starting September 2.

In the Heights – Set in a shrinking Washington Heights, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind, hopes, imagines and sings about a better life, meanwhile his friends Benny (Corey Hawkins), Vanessa (Melissa Barrera), and Nina (Leslie Grace) all vie for success inside and outside a vibrant New York City block. A film adaptation of the stage musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Catch it on DVD/Blu-ray starting August 31.
