There’s been a new trend in Hollywood as of late, and while it is undoubtedly successful at the box office, the fairy tale live action genre is not producing many quality films.

Disney has heard the word, and the word is that their female characters need to be better, stronger and more realistic. But now that the Mouse House is making a new live-action rendition of Cinderella, to be based on the classic animated movie, will our leading lady slip back into old habits?
Everything I’m seeing about Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella has me more excited for his finished work. Even though it has Helena Bonham Carter, it doesn’t appear as cartoonish and empty as the studio's live-action take on Alice in Wonderland. (Branagh and Tim Burton operate on different playing fields, for starters.)
The folks over at Fandango surveyed more than 1,000 movie fans and polled them on which stars and films they’re most anticipating to see grace the screen in 2015.

Disney is revamping Cinderella. With nearly a year to go before its set to hit theaters, the studio whose made an entire industry out of princess worship has unveiled the above official teaser trailer. And it is officially boring.
While Kenneth Branagh became best known as a director for his big screen adaptations of William Shakespeare’s greatest works, in the last few years he has done his part to completely shake up his own reputation. His next feature is tackling fairy tales with Cinderella.

Stellan Skarsgard is considering getting in deeper with Disney. The Swedish star who has played Bootstrap Bill in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean movies and Dr. Erik Selvig in Thor and The Avengers is currently in talks to join the studio's live-action re-imagination of Cinderella.
Helena Bonham Carter is certainly no stranger to fantasy and fairy tale films. Not even counting the films she's done with Tim Burton - including Alice in Wonderland, Big Fish, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - there's still the Harry Potter films, in which she played the evil/insane Bellatrix Lestrange. And now she's getting ready to add yet another title to her long genre record.

The Scottish actor, who is best known for playing Robb Stark (King of the North!) on Game of Thrones, will be joining a cast that includes Downton Abbey's Lily James as the titular princess.
