Fairytale lovers, today was full of the best (movie) news ever. We now have a full length trailer for the upcoming Disney live-action, Cinderella. Coming in March 2015, let me tell you, this looks awesome! cinderella full-length u.s trailer
Here’s a synopsis:
The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.”
She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and — armed with a pumpkin and a few mice — changes Cinderella’s life forever. – via Youtube‘Cinderella’ Full-Length U.S Trailer! #FWarchives Click To Tweet
I adore the “look” of this one. It’s bright and whimsical (something I did not expect); the costumes are glittery, colorful and beautiful; the acting (Cate will rock this character); and oh, my Richard doesn’t look half bad as the prince either (*wink*). You guys all know, I was the greatest skeptic about his casting. Definitely this will be one to must-see in the theater.
Your turn: what do you think? Let’s chat!
