Sixty-five years after Walt Disney Pictures released its animated classic Cinderella, the beloved fairy tale is getting the live-action treatment thanks to director Sir Kenneth Branagh and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
The first trailer for Cinderella has been released starring Downton Abbey’s Lily James as Cinderella, Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother, Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother, and Game of Throne’s Richard Madden as the dreamy Prince Charming.
Disney’s latest live-action fairytale, which premieres March 2015, follows the enchanted heroine trying to find her way following the death of her mother and later her father. She’s assisted by her Fairy Godmother as Cinderella’s step mother begins to ruin her life. The film is every bit complete with mice, a pumpkin carriage, and the believe in your dreams theme that will inspire audiences of all ages.
