Disney has been releasing and developing several films over the past few years that are inspired by the animated classics the studio thrives on. This was kicked off with Tim Burton’s live-action version of Alice in Wonderland and has led to both Sam Rami’s Oz the Great and Powerful and Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie.
Another film that Disney currently has in the works is a Kenneth Branagh-directed, live-action version of Cinderella. Recently, casting rumors have started to surround Harry Potter actress, Emma Watson. Watson is in talks to star as the iconic princess. Actress Cate Blanchett is also attached to portray the evil stepmother.
What do you think of this potential casting choice? Do you think Watson would fit the role of Cinderella? Would you be interested in seeing this film?
