First Maleficent and now Cinderella. Disney has been putting a live-action spin on classic fairy tales, and the first full trailer for the latest adaptation has arrived. Lily James (Downton Abbey) looks pitch perfect as the titular orphan whose life is turned upside down by an evil stepmother (played with devious delight by Cate Blanchett) and two ugly stepsisters. The trailer brings back all the magic that we may have forgotten, from the friendly mice to the kindly fairy godmother (Helena Bonham Carter) to the pumpkin-turned-carriage. And my goodness, the dress Cinderella wears to the ball is gorgeous. But of course the real highlight of the trailer is seeing Game of Thrones' Richard Madden out of his fur cloaks and into Prince Charming's wardrobe. Yep, I'm sufficiently excited for this. The movie opens on March 13!
Here's the first teaser, released in May.
