The Walt Disney Studios have announced that Richard Madden of Game of Thrones fame, has been cast as the Prince in the upcoming live-action adaptation of the Cinderella fairy tale. We’ve learned previously that Cate Blanchett and Lily James had been hired as the wicked stepmother and Cinderella. I really have no idea when the release date for this movie is, but I am a tad interested in seeing this knowing that Sir Kenneth Branagh is directing.
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.
