"Ella, you have more kindness in your little finger than most people possess in their whole body." The time has come for the classic fairytale to get a facelift from the same studio responsible for the most iconic animated take on Cinderella. The full trailer for the new live-action take on this magical coming-of-age romance has arrived, and it's definitely whimsical and rather gorgeous. If you're familiar with the tale of Cinderella, there's nothing drastically different, with the exception of a glimpse into the life the title character had before she was left with her wicked step-mother (Cate Blanchett). It looks all right. Watch!

Here's the first full trailer for Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella straight from Disney:

And here's the new poster shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz (who's no stranger to Disney):


Cinderella is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) and written by Aline Brosh McKenna (Annie, The Devil Wears Prada) and Chris Weitz (About a Boy, Antz). The story follows young Ella (Lily James) whose father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella's father unexpectedly dies, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. But a fairytale love with the kingdom's Prince (Richard Madden) might be her way out. Disney releases the film early next spring on March 13th, 2015.

That showed way too much. Granted most everyone knows the story. Looks like little girls will love it.

Looks better than Maleficent. Cate Blanchett looks like she'll be a great stepmother.

Me and my big sister loved Maleficent.

Not just all right, looks really charming and surprising from Kenneth Branagh actually. And that poster is gorgeous.

I don't know, this looked like a knockoff to me.

Good production value, or at least CG budget. Acting...not so much. Blanchett looks great though.
