The first trailer for Cinderella is here from Disney and it is simply glorious.
First of all, the choosing of Kenneth Branagh as director is impeccable. Then, there is the casting of Lily James as the title character in the live action version of Disney’s classic Cinderella and Cate Blanchett as her evil stepmother. Bloody brilliant, right?!
Where the first Cinderella teaser trailer truly teased what could be, this full Cinderella trailer has delivered on so many fronts.
It is romantic. It is emotionally riveting and, yes, this is all within a few minutes.
Richard Madden is our Prince, and he first meets Cinderella in this trailer as she is galloping away from her evil stepsisters and stepmother. But, they will meet again. That is, after Cinderella’s fairy godmother helps her out.
Our favorite line in the trailer is when she walks down the stairs at the ball and is greeted by Madden. She says, “They’re all looking at you.” He replies, “They’re all looking at you.” Nailed it!
Cinderella lands in March of 2015 and also stars Stellan Skarsgard, Derek Jocaobi and Helena Bonham Carter as the fairy godmother.
And might we just add that the score in this trailer is as moving as trailer music can be.
Disney also released a series of stills from the highly anticipated film. Click through and prepare to be mesmerized by the beauty of Cinderella.
