Disney’s furthering their efforts to promote the new rendition of their 1950s fantasy animation as they have just released a new featurette for “Cinderella” for the New Year. Read on for more details to this preview.
The Mouse House has cooked up another film that relives the action, drama, comedy and fantasy of their classic animations. They had “Alice in the Wonderland” and “Maleficent,” and now, they are showing a different shade of the story in the 2015 live-action version of “Cinderella.”
Based on Screen Rant’s feature, the latest featurette puts the splendid emphasis of the midnight deadline. It’s a common fact that Cinderella gets bestowed a magical spell that transformed her into an eye-catching princess who joined the prince’s ball and caught his attention. Another well-known turnout of the film is that when it strikes midnight, everything magical bestowed on her would go back to how they truly were. There are parts of the trailer that everyone will find familiar and there are also parts that will bring question onto their minds, especially with Cinderella’s famous glass shoe shattered to pieces by her evil stepmother.
“Remember, the magic will only last so long but when the hand strikes midnight, the spell will be broken and all will return to what it was before.” — The famous line of caution delivered by Cinderella’s Fairy God Mother echoed all throughout the trailer. This character is brought to life by Helena Bonham Carter, who also played key roles in Disney’s previous films such as “Alice in the Wonderland” and “The Lone Ranger.” She returns to the big screen bearing splendid gifts to Cinderella (more Ella on this narrative) played by “Downton Abbey” star Lily James. “Game of Thrones” alum Richard Madden is paired with her as the Prince Charming, and he is joined by another star from the same series Nonso Anozie, playing the noble Captain who helps the Prince in his search for his missing Ella.
The live-action/CGI “Cinderella” is directed by Kenneth Branagh and penned by Chris Weitz. The film definitely showcases a different feel as you compare it to its 1950 animation predecessor. Just like “Maleficent” and “Alice in the Wonderland,” it’s darker and compelling this time around. The movie opens in theaters on March 14, 2015.
That ends our preview of Walt Disney’s “Cinderella.” Keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates in the entertainment world.
