Disney’s upcoming live action adaptation of CINDERELLA was featured in a panel at CinemaCon, giving audiences a surprisingly detailed look into what the film will be like! Starring DOWNTON ABBEY’s Lily James and GAME OF THRONES’ Richard Madden alongside screen veterans Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter, Kenneth Branaugh’s take on CINDERELLA looks to blend the strict, traditional versions of the story with the more fantastical Disney animated feature.
The absolute dedication to the source material hits right in the Disney sweet spot. It is clear that director Kenneth Branagh is a fan of the fairy tale, and a fan of what Disney created. Sure there are plenty of new scenes that were hinted at (Prince Charming is seen briefly fencing with Game of Thrones’ Nonso Anozie). Plus it’s gorgeous and some how they may just make mice with vests work. Fingers crossed for this one: It looks really, really good.
