Walt Disney Studios has announced that Downton Abbey’s Lily James has been cast as Cinderella in the studios upcoming live-action adaptation of the fairy tale. Cate Blanchett has been cast as the wicked step-mother, with Sir Kenneth Branagh directing.

Over the next several weeks, I’m sure we’ll learn about the prince, the evil step-sisters, and we’ll see if there are any CGI mice running around.
