Good afternoon, everyone! I sure am appreciating all your fun comments on the music post from this morning. If you have anything to add, please “click” over there. The purpose of this post is simply to give a brief update on the Cinderella news we’ve been chatting about – a Cinderella has been found! So… The Hollywood Reporter and various other sources are confirming that actress Lily James has been “fitted with a glass slipper” for Disney’s upcoming live-action version of Cinderella.

James played Lady Rose McClare on season three of Downtown Abbey. She will reprise her role for season four. James’ previous film work includes playing Korrina in Warner Bros.’ Wrath of the Titans.
I know some fans aren’t fond of Lily’s character on ‘Downton’ so this may affect opinions on this casting. I think it’s wonderful! Now, who will be cast opposite of Lily as Prince Charming… Tell, me, what do you all think?
