Cinderella was one of my favorite films this year, partly because I attended the #CinderellaEvent and went to the Glam Ball, the Red Carpet, and interviewed a lot of the cast and crew. It was simply enchanting. Make sure you check out #CinderellaEvent for more on that. Now, however, it is time for the Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital HD release and along with that some fun and informative Bonus Features!
Let’s refresh on what this Live remake was about and who was in it:
SYNOPSIS: Celebrate Disney’s “Cinderella,” a modern classic that shines with beauty, imagination…and magic! Despite being mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters, a spirited Ella resolves to take charge of her fate. Add a royal ball, a Fairy Godmother and a glass slipper, and suddenly – magic becomes reality!
CAST: Cate Blanchett as Stepmother (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”), Lily James as Cinderella (TV’s “Downton Abbey”), Richard Madden (TV’s “Game of Thrones”) as Prince, Stellan Skarsgård (Marvel’s: “The Avengers,” “Thor”) as Grand Duke, Holliday Grainger (“Jane Eyre”) as Anastasia, Derek Jacobi (“The King’s Speech,” “Underworld: Evolution”) as King, and Helena Bonham Carter as Fairy Godmother (“Alice in Wonderland,” “The King’s Speech”),DIRECTOR: Kenneth Branagh (“Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “Thor”)
