As some of you are probably aware, Disney has started to make live-action versions of fairy-tales they previously released in animated form. (For example, Maleficent was a retelling of Sleeping Beauty.)
Disney is going to release a live-action version of Cinderella in March. Yesterday they released a trailer for the movie, and it reveals some of the plot, character, and setting.
Ooh, I love her shoes! And her dress!
Of course those would be the parts that stand out to you.
What? They’re pretty!
I wonder how long it’ll be until a pattern for that ballgown is available…
For me, I found the casting to be quite interesting. Cate Blanchett, the same actress who played Galadriel, is playing the evil stepmother. Even more interesting: Helena Bonham Carter, who frequently plays creepy and twisted roles, is playing the Fairy Godmother. You read that correctly. The trailer further demonstrates that no, in fact, the IMDB listings are not mixed up. The actresses do play those characters, respectively.
What do you think, readers? Are you at all surprised by the casting? What do you think will happen with this movie?
