Until this very moment I had no idea that a Cinderella live action movie was even in the works, but the first trailer just came out and it looks amazing.
What surprised most of all was the highly recognizable casting.
- Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother;
- Lily James as Cinderella (if you don’t know her, go watch Downton Abbey!)
- Cate Blanchett as the Stepmother;
- Hayley Atwell as Ella’s mom (again, don’t know who she is? She’s Agent Carter! Cap’s first love and coming to our screens in January…);
- Richard Madden as Prince Charming (and the King in the North looks mighty good!);
- Stellan Skarsgård as the Grand Duke;
- Holliday Grainger as Anastasia;
- Sophie McShera as Drizella (Downton Abbey again… Daisy!!!).
