Continuing the trend toward adapting animated classics to live-action features comes this teaser trailer from the folks over at Disney.

The studio’s live-action version of Cinderella is due in theaters March 13, 2015. It will be directed by Kenneth Branagh from a script by Chris Weitz. The movie stars Lily James as Cinderella, Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother and Helena Bonham Carter as the fairy godmother.

There’s also a teaser poster:

The studio’s original version of Cinderella is, of course, the classic animated feature, released in 1950.

What do you think Animag readers? Is this a ball you’d like to attend or will you prefer to stay home and do the chores? Let us know in the comments.

    Disney has really lost its Magic, this is nothing but them milking the name of another beloved classic. Disney has evolved into a giant corporation that does not seem to care about the art form that Walt Disney created.
    They would rather not take on the financial risk of coming up with something fresh and new.
    Live Action is just a lazy filmmakers way of creating CG animation, nothing special here, nothing like the hand drawn classics.

    I would prefer an live-action movie based on the new Broadway version of Rodger and Hammersteins Cinderella. The design and music is so good!
