For more than a year now, the only glimpse we have been able to see of the new Disney film, “Cinderella” has been a short clip of the iconic twinkling glass slipper. Now, the wait is over. Just this week, Disney released the official trailer for the new movie. Watch the video as shared with me by friend Zeca Oliveira.
Some of us may have expected a new retelling of the classic tale, like Disney recently did with the popular film, “Maleficient”. However, that is not expected with “Cinderella”. It will feature much of the same original story with only a few changes.
The film will star Lily James as Ella, a poor young girl severely mistreated by her wicked stepmother, played by Cate Blanchett. Ella’s fairy godmother will be played by Helena Bonham Carter, and her handsome prince charming will be played by Richard Madden.
“Cinderella” is set to hit theaters on March 13, 2015.
