Chosen Jacobs Wears a Cape to 'Sneakerella' Premiere with Lexi Underwood & More!

Chosen Jacobs Wears a Cape to 'Sneakerella' Premiere with Lexi Underwood & More!

Chosen Jacobs dons a long black cape as part of his look at the premiere of his new Disney+ movie Sneakerella on Wednesday (May 11) in New York City.

The 20-year-old star of the film was joined by his co-stars Lexi Underwood, John Salley, Devyn Nekoda, Bryan Terrell Clark, Hayward Leach, Kolton Stewart and Yvonne Senat Jones.

Also stepping out for the premiere were Naomi‘s Kaci Walfall and Broadway star Roman Banks.

Sneakerella is a music-driven retelling of the Cinderella story that follows El (Jacobs), an aspiring sneaker designer from Queens, who works as a stock boy in the shoe store that once belonged to his late mother. He hides his artistic talent from his overburdened stepfather and two mean-spirited stepbrothers who constantly thwart any opportunity that comes his way.

When El meets Kira King (Underwood), the fiercely independent daughter of legendary basketball star and sneaker tycoon Darius King (Salley), sparks fly as the two bond over their mutual affinity for sneakers. With a little nudge from his best friend, Sami (Nekoda) and a sprinkle of Fairy Godfather magic, El finds the courage to use his talent to pursue his dream of becoming a ‘legit’ sneaker designer in the industry. El is now ready to lace up and dream big.

The upcoming film premieres THIS Friday (May 13) on Disney+. Watch the trailer here!

Disney+ Announces New Modern Musical 'Sneakerella' Starring Chosen Jacobs & Lexi Underwood

Disney has just announced a brand new Cinderella-type musical called Sneakerella!

The upcoming pop/hip hop musical film will premiere on Disney+ in 2021 with stars Chosen Jacobs and Lexi Underwood.

Here’s a synopsis: Set in the avant-garde street-sneaker subculture of New York City, “Sneakerella” introduces El (Jacobs), an aspiring sneaker designer from Queens who works as a stock boy in the shoe store that once belonged to his late mother. El hides his artistic talent from his overburdened stepfather and two mean-spirited stepbrothers who constantly stomp on any opportunity that comes his way.

When El meets Kira King (Underwood), the fiercely independent daughter of legendary basketball star and sneaker tycoon Darius King (John Salley), sparks fly as the two bond over their mutual affinity for sneakers. With a little nudge from his best friend and a sprinkle of Fairy Godfather magic, El finds the courage to use his talent to pursue his dream of becoming a ‘legit’ sneaker designer in the industry.

Sneakerella brings a vibrant, modern approach to a beloved story by suggesting that magic is the result of hard work and determination and exists within each of us. Liz Allen‘s unique vision, Lexi and Chosen‘s amazing chemistry, the incredible music and the gravity-defying choreography, will bring this movie to life and inspire audiences of all ages,” Lauren Kisilevsky, vice president, Original Movies, Disney Channel, said in a statement.

Sneakerella has already begun production with Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum directing.

Additional casting includes Devyn Nekoda as El’s best friend Sami, Juan Chioran as El’s friendly neighbor Gustavo, Robyn Alomar as Kira’s sister Liv, and Bryan Terrell Clark as El’s stepfather Trey, with Kolton Stewart and Hayward Leach as El’s stepbrothers Zelly and Stacy, respectively.
