Disney announced today that principal photography has begun at Pinewood Studios in London for Cinderella, director Kenneth Branagh's live-action adaptation of the classic fairy tale. The film stars Lily James (Downton Abbey, Wrath of the Titans) in the title role, Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) as the Prince, Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother Lady Tremaine and Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother.
Others cast members include Stellan Skarsgard, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Nonso Anozie and Derek Jacobi.
"It is impossible to think of Cinderella without thinking of Disney and the timeless images we've all grown up watching. And those classic moments are irresistible to a filmmaker," said Branagh in a statement. "With Lily James we have found our perfect Cinderella. She combines knockout beauty with intelligence, wit, fun and physical grace. Her Prince is being played by Richard Madden, a young actor with incredible power and charisma. He is funny, smart and sexy and a great match for Cinderella."
Cinderella opens March 13, 2015.
