Disney releases “Cinderella” live action film teaser trailer and images


The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries
following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother
(Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a
jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and
spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon
her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not
give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets
in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels
she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out
an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the
charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her
dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter)
steps forward and – armed with a pumpkin and a few mice – changes Cinderella’s life forever.


A live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale, “Cinderella” brings to life the timeless images from
Disney’s 1950 animated masterpiece as fully-realized characters in a visually dazzling spectacle for a
whole new generation.

Directed by Academy Award®-nominee Kenneth Branagh (“Thor,” “Hamlet”) and starring Academy
Award-winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “Elizabeth”), Lily James (“Downton Abbey”), Richard
Madden (“Game of Thrones”) and Academy Award-nominee Helena Bonham-Carter (“The King’s
Speech,” “Alice in Wonderland”), “Cinderella” is produced by Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: Days of Future
Past,” “Elysium”), Allison Shearmur (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) and David Barron (“Harry
Potter and the Deathly Hallows”). The screenplay is by Chris Weitz (“About a Boy,” “The Golden
Compass”).

“Cinderella” will be released through Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures on March 13, 2015.
