Movie Exclusive – First Look at Kenneth Branagh’s “Cinderella”

Entertainment Weekly shared the first exclusive photo from the set of Disney’s live-action Cinderella film. Principal photography began on the highly awaited, Kenneth Branagh-directed film yesterday in London, England. This first photo feature Lily James as the iconic and classically beautiful princess.

According to an article on Entertainment Weekly, James is not being portrayed as your typical Cinderella and there will be some subtle changes to the story. In the classic story of Cinderella, she and the Prince (Richard Madden) first meet at the ball. In Branagh’s version, Cinderella meets the Prince before the ball, but he lies and tells her that he’s a palace employee.

In a statement yesterday, Branagh was explaining how happy he is with his cast by saying: “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.”
