Cinderella 2015 Movie Spoilers: Set for a March 2015 Release, Same Storyline But with an Interesting Mix of Tones and Special Effects
Walt Disney's latest live-action film adaptation of the classic "Cinderella" fairy tale by Charles Perrault and the studio's own 1950 feature animation will hit theater screens worldwide on March 13, 2015. Directed by Kenneth Branagh from a screenplay written by Aline Brosh McKenna and Chris Weitz, the new Cinderella movie is headlined by Cate Blanchette as the wicked stepmother Lady Tremaine and Lily James in the title role.
Others in the cast include Holliday Grainger and Sophie McSherra as Cinderella's wicked stepsisters Anastacia and Drizella, respectively, Richard Madden as Prince Charming, Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother, Stellan Skarsgard as the Grand Duke, Derek Jacobi as the King, Nonzo Anosie as the Captain, and Hayley Atwell and Ben Chaplin as Cinderella's mother and father, respectively.
Based on the official synopsis for the movie, there will be very little deviation from the original well-known 1697 Perrault version of the Cinderella story. The movie plot summary released by Disney reads:
"The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drisella into the family home. But, when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to 'have courage and be kind.' She will not give in to despair nor despise those who abuse her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears as if her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming 'Kit.' Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand as a kindly beggar woman steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella's life forever."
Since everyone already knows how the Cinderella story will unfold and how it will end, what is it about the forthcoming movie that will make us want to see it? For one, most of those who got to watch the special screening of some of the film's footage during CinemaCon were pleased with what they saw. Said Eric Eisenberg of Cinema Blend, "While we were told before the footage that some of the special effects had yet to be completed and that the movie is still very much a work in process, I was definitely impressed by what I saw. There is an interesting mix of tones at work, as heavy drama is lightened by some funny dialogue and rapport, and the film looks gorgeously shot. Of course, this is the footage that Disney wanted us to see in order to get us excited for the film, but my interest is definitely piqued."
