In a brand new behind the scenes featurette for Disney’s Cinderella, both cast and crew emphasise that although we might know the story, this version of the classic tale will be completely different from anything we’ve seen before.
While director Kenneth Branagh (Hamlet, Thor) has maintained the film’s fairy tale setting, he’s clear to point out that it carries a very modern sensibility which extends right up to Lily James’ portrayal of the classic Disney princess, “there are no damsels in distress here, Cinderella is not a pushover, she stick’s up for herself.”
Game Of Thrones alumni Richard Madden, who plays the role of Cinderella’s Prince, also confirmed that the classic story has lost none of its magic in this new adaption. “It’s got these magical elements that make it even more breathtaking to see.”
