Yes, they are making a Cinderella movie annnnndddd the trailer came out last week and I am so excited I can hardly contain myself!
First off the casting. I seriously think the casting director went hey, what are Emily's favorite shows? Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones? Ok, lets have a majority of the cast come from there.
Cinderella is played by Lily James,
who was also Lady Rose MacClare on Downton Abbey.
Now who is going to play Prince Charming next to this lovely leading lady? Good news everyone, Robb Stark from Game of Thrones lives! Yep, the handsome Richard Madden is taking on this royal role.
And what about the villains?
Oh yes, Cate Blanchette is playing Lady Tremaine the Wicked Stepmother. Also, another Downton Abbey cast sighting! Sophie McShera, who plays Daisy, has taken on the role as Drizella (the one in the yellow).
And last, but certainly not least, who else would save the day and get Cinderella to the ball then Helena Bonham Carter?
Bellatrix Lestrange turned Fairy Godmother (bet you never saw that one coming!)
If I haven't sold you on the cast, maybe the costumes will convince you otherwise. Cinderella's gown is nothing more than swoon worthy and is what fairy tales are made of (as it should be!)
Even the villains have amazing costumes! But don't just take my word for it, read all about how Oscar award winning costume designer, Sandy Powell, is revamping the wardrobe from this classic story here.
And if by some miracle, you're still not sure about this film, I'll let the trailer speak for itself.
