Principal photography has begun on Cinderella, Disney’s live action re-imagining of the classic fairytale of the same name.
Set for release on March 13, 2015 Cinderella, played by Lily James, follows the original concept storyline, however in this live action version we get to see more of Cinderella’s history and backstory, which includes her mother played by Hayley Atwell. Other principal characters include Cate Blanchett as Lady Tremaine, Helena Bonham Carter as The Fairy Godmother, Richard Madden as Prince Charming, Stellen Skargard as The Grand Duke, Holliday Grainger as Anastasia, and Sophie McShera as Drizella. The film will be directed by Kenneth Branagh.
The first image of this widely-anticipated film can be seen above.
I personally cannot wait to see this film. Cinderella is the classic princess fairytale and a wonderful choice for Disney to make into a live action film. What I’m looking forward to most (besides the scenery and costumes) is Helena Bonham Carter’s portrayal of The Fairy Godmother. THAT should be interesting.
Are you looking forward to Cinderella? Thoughts on the casting?
