It may not hit theatres until 2015, but Walt Disney Pictures is giving us a first look at their upcoming live-action version of the classic fairy tale.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring relative unknown Lily James ("Downton Abbey", Wrath of the Titans), the production began filming yesterday at London's Pinewood Studios in London.

The film is also set to star Cate Blanchett as her wicked stepmother, Helena Bonham Carter as her off-kilter (naturally) fairy godmother, and Richard Madden ("Game of Thrones") as her very handsome and aptly-named Prince Charming. Frequent Branagh collaborator Derek Jacobi is on-board here as the King and Holliday Grainger ("Great Expectations," "Anna Karenina") and Sophie McShera ("Downton Abbey) are along for the ride as the infamous stepsisters Anastasia and Drisella. »
