Cinderella Movie Review

Title: Cinderella  Director: Kenneth Branagh Starring: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham-Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Derek Jacobi, Stellan Skarsgard.  ‘Cinderella’ is the romantic story that has been most adapted on screen, from the fairytale animated version to all the contemporary “happily ever afters” that occur when the wretched girl meets the charming established boy. The most prominent Shakespearean director of our times, who has also tested successfully the direction of Marvel flicks (Thor) – Kenneth Branagh – directs the Disney action movie starring Lily James as Cinderella and Richard Madden as Prince Charming.

20 Actors Who Could Be Real Life Disney Characters

20 February 2015 12:58 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros./Disney

Many Disney adaptations have already tried placing actors in the roles of live action counterparts, but they haven’t always been on the money. Angelina Jolie did a remarkable job stepping into Maleficent’s cloak, but Julia Roberts as Mirror Mirror’s Queen or Helena Bonham-Carter as Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother? Not so much.

It seems that Disney’s Maleficent has triggered production on an influx of live action Disney classics that will soon be seen on the silver screen. Given that 2014’s Sleeping Beauty adaptation has set the bar rather high for those yet to come, it has never been more important to get the casting spot on.

Into The Woods chose Anna Kendrick to play Cinderella, whereas Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming feature thinks Lily James a better fit for the princess. But perhaps the young and vibrant Jennifer Lawrence deserves the glass slipper?
