Disney Cinderella Glass Slipper

Cate Blanchett Gets Evil in New ‘Cinderella’ Trailer

The new trailer for Disney’s live-action iteration of Cinderella sticks pretty close to the plot that you remember from the original. Which is actually a bit at odds with the trailer’s tag line; “There’s more to the legend than you ever dreamed.”

I sincerely hope so. Since Maleficent so fundamentally reworked the narrative of the classic Sleeping Beauty story, it would be a shame if this new Cinderella turned out to be just an especially shiny retread of the source material. But of course, if there was going to be something interesting an unexpected about the movie, it wouldn’t be advertised in the trailer.

At any rate, it still looks gorgeous. Kenneth Branagh’s penchant for opulent settings and hammy yet compelling performances is on full display (SO MUCH BLUE!) and the cast looks and plays the part very well.

Cinderella will go to the ball in theaters March 13th.
