Some ‘Once Upon A Time’ Fans Are Not Happy With Them Recasting Cinderella For The Reboot

“Once Upon A Time” is doing a reboot of the show for season 7 and, according to Entertainment Weekly, that means new iterations of characters we have already seen on the show. The people in charge of “Once Upon A Time” participated in the D23 Expo where Disney showed off what new things we can expect from the massive entertainment company. One thing we learned about the upcoming “Once Upon A Time” season is that Cinderella is coming back but this time she is played by Dania Ramirez. As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Cinderella isn’t coming back to redo anything. Instead, season 7 is going to dive into alternate books and stories with an alternate reality and different backstory.

“Dania Ramirez will be playing a different version of Cinderella,” executive producer Edward Kitsis told Entertainment Weekly. “If we remember Henry’s grandfather is Prince Charming [Josh Dallas], so we have the grandson of Prince Charming with a new Cinderella.”

The decision to reiterate Cinderella in the series has drawn some backlash against the show with fans taking to Twitter to call the writers lazy and unimaginative.

Dominican-American actor Dania Ramirez will be bringing Cinderella to life for “Once Upon A Time.”

You might remember Ramirez from her role as Rosie Falta in “Devious Maids” or as Alex in “Entourage.”

While this is exciting news for some, other fans are not happy about the new Cinderella.

Even though the people in charge of “Once Upon A Time” have said that the new Cinderella is not impeding on the old Cinderella’s story because they are not from the same story. The new Cinderella is a different, alternate story so it’s not exactly a change from the classic Cinderella story.

Despite the backlash against her casting, Ramirez seems excited to show off her Cinderella to the world.

The Mirabal Sisters Died Seeking Justice In The Dominican Republic And Now Their Legacy Lives On Through A New York Street Sign

The Mirabal Sisters are being commemorated in Washington Heights.

The late Dominican sisters, famous for their brave activism against dictator Rafael Trujillo in the 1950s-’60s, now have a street named after them in the largely Dominican New York neighborhood. According to New York City Council Member Ydanis, “the southeast corner of 168th St. and Amsterdam Avenue will be co-named Mirabal Sisters Way.”

“They stand as inspirational and visionary activists for social and political justice and role models to generations of women since their untimely death in 1960 at the hands of the Dominican tyrant Trujillo,” Rodriguez, who was born in the Caribbean country, said.

On Sunday, he joined members of the city’s Dominican community — including the Mirabal Sisters Cultural & Community Center and Altagracia Mirabal, the late siblings’ cousin — for the naming ceremony.

Throughout their lives, Minerva, María Teresa and Patria Mirabal, known as Las Mariposas, resisted Trujillo’s oppressive regime, forming the Movement of the Fourteenth of June that attempted to overthrow the president and speaking out, often by distributing informative detailed pamphlets, against his atrocities. For their dissent, María Teresa and Minerva were sentenced to three years in prison in May 1960. They, however, were soon released following international calls for their freedom. But three months later, on November 25, 1960, the sisters were assassinated by Trujillo’s henchmen.

The women’s fight for justice has been honored by the United Nations General Assembly, who designated the anniversary of their murder as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. In popular media, the Mirabal sisters have also been celebrated in Dominican-American author Julia Alvarez’s book “In the Time of Butterflies” and the film adaptation featuring Salma Hayek and Marc Anthony.
