At some point or another most little girls have dreamed about one day finding a prince charming like in the Disney princess films, or just going through the whole magical Disney journey in general. Well actress Lily James will be the latest live-action incarnation of the girl who loses her glass slipper and happens to find true love in Cinderella. If you consider that to be a spoiler then I feel bad for you.

Kenneth Branagh, director of Thor and overall great actor, will be directing Cinderella off the script written by Aline Brosh McKenna and Chris Weitz. Lily James, our new Cinderella, is best known for her work in the latest season of the hit BBC series Downton Abbey. Originally actress Emma Watson was going to be the family help turned princess, but that didn’t happen after all. Maybe Disney is going the better route with Lily James just because she’s on a hit show and her acting skill shows that she’s somebody who could be climbing into the A-list row of actors soon enough.

Cate Blanchett is said to be playing the wicked stepmother who makes Cinderella’s life a living hell until she meets the man of her dreams. There’s been no lock on who will be playing Prince Charming, but it could go to anyone. Now I’m curious to see who they’ll cast to make women’s hearts melt around the world.

Who else would you like to see in the live action Cinderella film?
