The trio reunited on Tuesday’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, where they discussed their time on the set of the movie and Barrymore wiggled into her costume wings.

Ever After is a reimagining of the classic Cinderella fairytale and also starred Anjelica Huston, Dougray Scott, Toby Jones, Timothy West, Judy Parfitt, and Patrick Godfrey.
Barrymore spoke to Entertainment Tonight earlier this year about how the movie impacted her and changed the way she saw the world. She said that it was an example of empowering storytelling that impacted her personally and that she wouldn’t be the same person without it.
“I know creative things have [changed my life] for me in my life, not only when I was a kid but when I was in my early 20s,” she said. “I did Ever After. I was like, ‘I don’t think I would be the same person without giving a spin on what we think a princess is supposed to be.’ “
“I was in my early 20s and then I was trying to start a company and wanted to tell stories and make films and that particular messaging that you can rescue yourself and you don’t have to wait to be rescued is definitely the thing that set me up best in my life,” Barrymore said.
The film is currently streaming on Disney+ and has resonated with viewers for its empowering message of not needing to be rescued and being able to rescue oneself.
