Back in 2015, news broke that some well-known pop singers will be lending their vocal talents to a new princess movie called Charming. Avril Lavigne voices Snow White, Ashley Tisdale is Cinderella, and G.E.M. acts as Sleeping Beauty. Meanwhile, Demi Lovato is voicing the leading lady, Lenore. Our starring Prince Philippe Charming is played by Wilmer Valderrama.
And as with any good animated film, it also comes with a handful of original songs. Australian singer (and hit songwriter) Sia wrote two songs for the film. She’ll be singing “Balladino” in addition to voicing Half-Oracle in the film. The other Sia-penned song, “Magical,” will be sung by Demi Lovato.
A third new song was written by Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. “Trophy Boy” is performed by Avril Lavigne, Ashley Tisdale, and G.E.M. You can hear a clip of it in the new Charming trailer. Listen for “Trophy Boy” in the first half of the trailer below:
