Briefly: Kenneth Branagh‘s live-action Disney film, Cinderella, has just found its Fairy Godmother. Helena Bonham Carter will play the iconic role helping the title character (Lily James) fall in love with the prince (Richard Madden) in spite of the Wicked Stepmother (Cate Blanchett).
Oh yeah, I forgot there was an upcoming live action Cinderella. To say I’m thrilled would be a gross over-exaggeration. Let’s just say I am not sure if I care much about this film.
Also, Helena Bonham Carter as the “good guy” and Cate Blanchett as the “bad guy”. What will you tell me next? That there’s a flying pig farm down the road? That up is down? That the sky has turned purple with pink polkadots and blue clouds?
