Disney will release a new live-action version of Cinderella on March 13th, 2015. In anticipation, the film’s trailer has premiered online.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh (Hamlet, Henry V), the film stars Lily James as Cinderella, Cate Blanchett as the Wicked Stepmother, and Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother.
This new version of Cinderella follows Disney’s 1950 animated film with a few exceptions: Cinderella and the Prince meet prior to the ball, and the Fairy Godmother is initially disguised as an old beggar who watches over Cinderella before revealing herself.
