Ever since my daughter watched Disney's classic animated movie Cinderella for the first time, she has been totally enamored with this fairy tale princess. She tells everyone the highlight of her life (all five years of it so far) has been being able to meet Cinderella at DisneyLand. In fact, when she had the chance to meet Cinderella she proudly showed off the t-shirt she was wearing with the character's portrait vibrantly displayed on it and exclaimed "I'm your biggest fan!" So you know she's going to be excited when a brand new Cinderella movie sashays into theaters on March 13, 2015.
Cinderella will be directed by Academy Award nominee Kenneth Branagh (THOR, HAMLET) and star Lily James (DOWNTOWN ABBEY) as Cinderella, Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett (BLUE JASMINE, ELIZABETH) as the evil stepmother, Richard Madden (GAME OF THRONES) as Prince Charming and Academy Award nominee Helena Bonham Carter (THE KINGS SPEECH, ALICE IN WONDERLAND) as the fairy godmother. The movie's producers are promising this live action feature film will bring to life the timeless images from Disney's 1950 animated masterpiece as fully-realized characters in a visually dazzling spectacle for a whole new generation.
Check out this trailer from the upcoming movie:
You know I'd be the worst dad in the world if I didn't take my little princess to see this new adaption of Cinderella. After watching the animated Disney version of this fairy tale with my daughter more times then I can count, something new that she'll enjoy is definitely going to be appreciated in our household. Fortunately from the looks of the trailer this movie appears to be actually a decent film to watch for both the princesses and the parents in the audience.
So the question is will my son want to go along to see the new #Cinderella movie theater? I'm not sure though he does appear to be plotting something with Anastasia, Drisella and Lady Tremaine?
