It has been 65 full years since Disney released its classic Cinderella cartoon, and so, by all means, it is high-time for a live-action revival. And Kenneth Branagh is directing. The trailer looks fun, the prince looks handsome, Lily James who plays the titular role comes with a Downton Abbey pedigree (she plays Lady Rose) but as is customary in these circumstances it is the fairy godmother (Helena Bonham Carter at the battiest, it seems) and the evil stepmother (Cate Blanchett, just having a little too much fun being even more wicked than she was in Hannah) that we should be TRULY excited for.
The movie doesn’t open till March 13th but WHO HAS TIME TO WAIT FOR THAT so, we have some free tickets to give away to the preview screening THIS WEDNESDAY. Cause we’re magical like that.
