Look at that image above. Pretty, isn’t it? You know what that is? It is the VERY first image released from the upcoming live action Disney film Cinderella. Yes, everyone’s favorite cleaning lady turned princess is coming to the big screen in human form.
The acclaimed director/actor Kenneth Branagh began directing the film in London this week. The movie stars Lily James of Downton Abbey in the role of Cinderella, Richard Madden of Game of Thrones as Prince Charming, Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother, and Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother.
Kenneth Branagh said of his project: “It is impossible to think of Cinderella without thinking of Disney and the timeless images we’ve all grown up watching. And those classic moments are irresistible to a filmmaker. With Lily James we have found our perfect Cinderella. She combines knockout beauty with intelligence, wit, fun and physical grace. Her Prince is being played by Richard Madden, a young actor with incredible power and charisma. He is funny, smart and sexy and a great match for Cinderella.”
So are you excited to see it? We sure are! But we’ll all have to wait. The film won’t be released until March 13, 2015.
