Helena Bonham Carter: Cinderella's Fairy Godmother!

Helena Bonham Carter is set to play Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother in the upcoming live action Disney film Cinderella!

The 47-year-old actress joins Lily James as Cinderella, Richard Madden as the Prince, and Cate Blanchett as the Wicked Stepmother in the film that will be directed by Kenneth Branagh. It was also recently reported that Sophie McShera and Holliday Granger will play the step-sisters.

The fairy godmother’s role has reportedly been expanded. She will be “disguised as an old beggar who watches over Cinderella before revealing herself as the magical being she truly is,” according to THR.

    The cast is shaping up to be quite impressive. I don’t know much about the actress they cast as Cinderella, but it’s probably better that they went with an unknown.

    Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett, Holliday Grainger, and (especially!) Richard Madden will be in this film?!!! I am so stoked, I can’t wait to see this film now!! (I was going to see it anyways because of Richard, but these other actors add an extra bonus)

    Oh and Kenneth Branagh directing?! It’s going to be an incredible film!
