Helena Bonham Carter has been cast as the fairy godmother in Disney’s upcoming live-action film Cinderella. Previously announced cast members include Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother, Lily James in the title role and Richard Madden as the prince.

“We were thinking of titles and characters that we hadn’t really seen done in a modern, live-action way, and we were kind of stunned that Cinderella hasn’t really been done that way, as a traditional, loyal telling of the story,” producer Simon Kinberg told LA Times recently.

Cinderella will be directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh and is currently slated for a 2014 release. We’ll keep you posted as more information surfaces!

  1. I think it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Cinderella seems so not something that HBC would do. Most of her movies have been darker so it will be interesting to see her in a lighter movie.

  3. It will be strange to see her in that role. I suppose she could do it, but it’ll be a change of pace for her.
