A fondness for Star Trek (or Starfield). A love of cons. A pumpkin orange vegan food truck. A fairy god-seamstress. Evil stepmother. Mean stepsisters. Glass slippers.
It’s all here. It might sound a little clichéd at first, but Geekerella does a splendid job of mashing all of these worlds together, creating a heroine who’s more than a Disney princess waiting around for a guy and including support characters who are fully formed and seem appropriately geeky or evil, depending on their role. Elle is an outsider in an image-obsessed family, and her Prince Carmindor has challenges of his own. It’s a sweet, modern re-telling, perfect for a summer afternoon, especially if you are a fan.
