'Cinderella' Flashback
When Cate Blanchett's evil stepmother role was just a thought...
Here is your first look at Walk Disney Pictures’ new live action take on Cinderella, starring Lily James as the title character and Cate Blanchett as her evil stepmother.

There are plenty of other familiar faces in the new film, directed by Kenneth Branagh:

Helena Bonham Carter gives a sassy spin on the Fairy Godmother role; Sophie McShera from Downton Abbey plays one of the stepsisters Drizella; Stellan Skarsgard is the Grand Duke; Robb StarkRichard Madden and his sparkling blue eyes make up the coveted role of Prince Charming.

There’s some CGI involved, of course, with all the magic and the whole mice turning into horses bit.

This is the first time we’ve seen actual human beings and dialogue from the film. Remember the 60-second teaser that starred just the glass slipper? Yeah, this one is waaaay better.

Cinderella opens in theaters Mar. 13, 2015.
