The New Cinderella Trailer Will Make You Long For Childhood
Its all-star cast list is a cherry picked list of all your favourite faces
Who said that a fairy tale blockbuster can’t have an epic trailer? The new Cinderella trailer is on par with The Hunger Games (maybe) in terms of heart-wrenching, big band, emotionally tasking visuals.
Starring Downton Abbey’s Lily James as Cinders, Game Of Thrones’ Richard Madden as Prince Charming and a frankly Peggy Mitchell-esque Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother, Cinderella looks like the high budget version of a Taylor Swift video.
It sounds like director Kenneth Branagh (British acting bigwig, FYI) wanted his Cinderella to be nothing of a pushover, saying "Cinderella is certainly placed in challenging circumstances, but she chooses not to be the damsel in distress and we see her make strong, positive choices in that regard.”
Arriving in cinemas in March 2015, Cinderella will no doubt make everyone who’d just gotten over being single for Valentine’s Day tumble into a spiral of longing all over again. We can’t wait.
