Yes, yes, we know. Fairy tales are a bunch of nonsense designed to trap us into thinking that happiness lies in finding a dashing prince — oh, would you look at those shoes?
Sorry, but you'll just have to put your inner cynic on the backburner for a couple of minutes, because the trailer for Kenneth Branagh's live-action remake of Cinderella looks good. Like, take-me-to-Disneyland-right-now good.
Maybe it's Cate Blanchett playing the ultimate evil stepmother. Maybe it's Downton Abbey's Lily James looking absolutely divine as the hardworking Ella. Maybe it's the spot-on casting of Helena Bonham Carter as the fairy godmother. Maybe it's the talking mice. Who are we kidding? It's those glass slippers.
Cinderella opens in theaters March 13, 2015.
