‘Steps’, an Animated Musical Spin on the ‘Cinderella’ Story, Headed to Netflix With Producer Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler and her Paper Kite Productions have another yet Netflix title on the way – Steps, an animated musical described as “a spin on the classic Cinderella story.” Unlike traditional Cinderella adaptations, this story focuses on the step-sister characters. But here’s a twist on the familiar formula: this time, it sounds like the stepsister characters are the heroes and won’t be portrayed as wicked and mean as they appear in most tellings of the classic fairy tale that’s been adapted several times before. Poehler will produce the film, which is written by Riki Lindhome and directed by Alyce Tzue. Lindhome and Kate Micucci, also known as Garfunkel and Oates, will create the film’s music.
