Trailer: Disney’s live action ‘Cinderella’ release teaser trailer

Disney has released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming live action version of Cinderella.

Although the trailer doesn’t give much away, it does tell us that Cinderella will be released on 13th March 2015 in the US. The film will be released on 3rd April 2015 in the UK.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, Downton Abbey actress Lily James stars in the lead role as Cinderella.

Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden will also star as Prince Charming, Cate Blanchett as the stepmother Lady Tremaine and Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother.

This role reunites Helena Bonham Carter with Kenneth Branagh who directed and starred with her in 1994s Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

The supporting cast also includes Sir Derek Jacobi as The King, and Stellan Skarsgård as the Grand Duke.

With Chris Weitz and Aline Brosh McKenna having written the screenplay, filming wrapped up on Cinderella at the end of 2013, with Walt Disney Pictures set to release the film in 2015.

With the success of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, with a sequel set for release in 2016, and the upcoming release of Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie, it seems that Disney may be heading towards more live action films in the near future.
