Twenty-five years after first playing the role of Cinderella, Brandy is stepping back into her glass slippers.

The singer and actress will reprise her role as the fairy tale heroine, first seen in the 1997 TV movie “Cinderella,” in a new installment of the “Descendants” franchise for Disney+, she announced Monday Mouse House.

Also joining the project, called “The Pocketwatch,” is Rita Ora as the Queen of Hearts from the “Alice in Wonderland” story.

“The Pocketwatch” follows 2019’s “Descendants 3.” The first film in the series, 2015’s “Descendants,” told the story of the teenage sons of some of the most well-known villains in Disney’s animated classics.

The first three films, which included 2017’s “Descendants 2,” starred Dove Cameron, Booboo Stewart and the late Cameron Boyce.

The new story will explore the characters Red and Chloe (Kylie Cantrall and Malia Baker, respectively), the daughters of the Queen of Hearts and Cinderella, as they navigate the balance of power between good and evil with a little travel in time mixed through a magic pocket watch.

Brandy starred in the late 1990s Emmy Award-winning retelling of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella,” opposite Whitney Houston as the Fairy Godmother, for ABC’s Wonderful World of Disney.

Disney also announced Monday that “Descendants” fan favorite Melanie Paxson will reprise her role as the Fairy Godmother from previous “Descendants” films for “The Pocketwatch.”

The release date of the film is yet to be announced.
