Cate Blanchett Conspires to Keep 'Cinderella' Hidden in New TV Spot

"Keep that girl out of sight, and you will get whatever you desire." So far the trailers for Disney's new live-action version of Cinderella have shown exactly what we expected from the Kenneth Branagh directed adaptation of the classic fairytale. However, with a new trailer poised to debut on Wednesday, a new TV spot has arrived that shows there might be more to the story than we anticipated. In this new tease, we are privy to a conspiracy between the vice regent (Stellan Skarsgård) and Cinderella's step-mother (Cate Blanchett) to keep the young girl (Lily James) away from the prince (Richard Madden). Watch!

Here's the new TV spot for Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella from Disney:

You can still watch the most recent US theatrical trailer for Cinderella right here.

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.

Re: your misleading title and content, Skarsgård plays the vice regent or something similar the king is quite lovely.

Unintentionally misleading, maybe, but since they don't say "This is the vice regent," it's not exactly obvious who the character is in this 30-seconds of footage. Thanks for the information though.

Drew's "Ever After" is still the best Cinderella story, after the original Disney. IMHO
