We all know the story of Cinderella. But now, the beloved narrative is getting an update with a fairytale cast, including Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham-Carter, and Downton Abbey actress Lily James as the leading lady.
What can we expect from this Kenneth Branagh–directed film? “I believe that there are expectations of a Disney Cinderella,” Kenneth says. “So, of course, we give people a pumpkin. Of course, we give them a carriage….Everything that you might expect is there.” Except this time, Cinderella doesn’t play victim. He adds, “She’s her own gal and she’s good company. She redefines goodness, I think, in the performance and she makes it sexy, and cool, and playful.”
Pumpkin carriages aside, the part I’m the most excited about? The glass slippers (obviously).
