Sneakerella is a modern gender-tossed twist on the classic fairytale Cinderella, set in the street-sneaker subculture of New York City.
Switching the glass slippers for certain stylish high-tops, the film revolves around teenager El (played by Chosen Jacobs) who has big dreams of becoming a sneaker designer but conceals his skill.
However, things start changing soon when he has an opportunity encounter with Kira King (played by Lexi Underwood), and with spirit and a touch of magic, El gathers the courage to fulfill his dream.
This music-inspired film has a star-packed cast, along with Chosen Jacobs who gained immense popularity following the portrayal of his role in the horror movie It, and Lexi Underwood who is popular for her character in Little Fires Everywhere.
