Cinderella is all set to be released March 13, 2015! A synopsis found on IMDB states that it will be the same story, except that “there is the dashing stranger [Cindy] meets in the woods… unaware that he is really a prince”. Sound familiar? That’s because it’s the story of Sleeping Beauty! Ugh.
Lily James of Downton Abbey is set to play Cinderella, which I have no opinion on yet. However if she is on Downton Abbey, I have faith that she’ll be a wonderful actress with all the grace of a princess.
BUT THE PRINCE! THE PRINCE YOU GUYS!!! The prince is being played by Richard Madden, as in Robb Stark of Game of Thrones. I am literally so excited, he is super attractive and an excellent actor. I think he will fit the aesthetic of the movie very well.
The teaser trailer itself doesn’t reveal much besides a glittering shoe with a golden butterfly. The shoe, in my opinion, is awkwardly high. The proportions seem off, but I felt that the butterfly was a nice touch.
