Cate Blanchett As Cinderella's Wicked Stepmother Is Exactly As We Pictured Her - See The New Posters!

Check out Cate Blanchett as the Wicked Stepmother in these new Cinderella posters!

Flanked by her spoiled daughters, Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera), the poster is just one of three new images from the upcoming Disney movie.

The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother and her daughters Anastasia and Drisella into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family.

Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods — unaware that he’s the Prince (Richard Madden)!

Cinderella opens in theaters on March 13th, 2015.

    Wasn’t the stepmother supposed to be a darker scarier older-lady instead of this mean milf? These characters look NOTHING like the Disney classic!!, unlike Maleficent whose main characters did bear at least some resemblance to the animated film. Same goes for the fairy godmother.

    Margot Robbie Should been casting as Cinderella, lilyjames is just awful

  • Morgana

    QUEEN.

  • Morgana

    Unfortunately Margot cannot act.

    Not that Lily James can, but at least she has that ingenue face.

    Disney is not the original.
    Try to read a little. Not everything is better on film.

  • Missy

    Can’t wait for this movie. It looks great :)

    I truly HATE this type of ‘wicked stepmother and her jealous daughters’ stories, given that composite families are more prevalent every day in any developed society.
    That been said, I still find Cate marvelous in the post!

  • Soniaintown

    I kind of think when the movie comes out, no one will remember who played Cinderella.

    I wish they would use the version of the Grimm Brothers, they decided to use the Perrault version that is exactly the same of the animation movie, The one from the Grimms is way better and darker and interesting

    No one cares about the girl playing Cinderella. This is going to be Queen Cate’s movie.
    Also it’s utterly ridiculous they cast that bland looking girl as Cinderella and have the gorgeous Holliday Grainger as an ‘ugly’ stepsister.

  • Cate

    Agreed.

    joke’s on you, this is clearly Disney’s adaptation of their adaptation, since no godmother was present in the original.
