Camila Cabello‘s acting debut has a release date!

The singer, 23, is starring in Sony Pictures’ upcoming Cinderella movie, and the film will open in the U.S. on Feb. 5, 2021, PEOPLE confirms.

Cabello will star as Cinderella in the reimagined classic from James Corden, PEOPLE confirmed in April 2019.

Helmed by Blockers director and Pitch Perfect writer Kay Cannon, The Hollywood Reporter said Cabello will also be involved with the film’s music.

Though plot details haven’t been released, the story is reportedly a modern reimagining of the classic fairy tale in which an orphaned girl turns into a princess. Cabello’s Cuban and Mexican roots will likely play a part in the modern aspect of the story.

Cabello’s film joins a slew of Sony releases that have release dates confirmed including the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel, opening April 2022, Hotel Transylvania 4 with a set release of December 2021 and Tom Holland’s Uncharted, set for October 2021.

Some Sony films have been pushed back due to the pandemic include Jared Leto’s Morbius and Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

As outbreaks of the coronavirus have surpassed 1 million worldwide, studios have pushed back several films, beginning with No Time To Die, followed by films like Scoob! and Wonder Woman 1984. With movie theaters closed temporarily in an effort to stem the outbreak, other films such as Marvel’s Black Widow, Thor: Love and Thunder and Disney’s Mulan have also been allotted new release dates.
