Disney just released the first full trailer for Kenneth Branagh's "Cinderella," a live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale.
The movie stars "Downton Abbey's" Lily James as the titular character, a beautiful young woman with a gentle spirit who finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family after the death of her father.
Oscar winner Cate Blanchett stars as the wicked stepmother, Helena Bonham Carter plays her enchanting fairy godmother, and "Game of Thrones" hunk Richard Madden is the dashing Prince Charming.
Branagh reveals that this new film does not stray far from the classic Disney version of the fairytale.
"I believe that there are expectations of a Disney Cinderella, which demand you use the tenets of the story," he told EW. "So, of course, we give people a pumpkin. Of course, we give them a carriage. Of course the mice are going to transform into the horses. Everything that you might expect is there."
"In the past, [some versions of] the story had set Cinderella as a victim," he continues. "From the inside out, we see a girl who does not see herself as a victim. She's her own gal and she's good company. She redefines goodness, I think, in the performance and she makes it sexy, and cool, and playful."
While the plot is similar to the original, the costumes have gotten a modern and magical upgrade ... from the glamorous gowns to the one-of-a-kind Swarovski glass slipper.
We still can't get over how tiny Cinderella's waist looks in that dreamy dress!
