I am a Disney Geek, which is obvious by all the printables and cubeecrafts I have made. Somehow I missed the update that Disney was making a new movie to be released in March 2015. Well, I missed it until today.
I opened my email to find this Beautiful Glass Slipper. My jaw dropped. Could it be? Could they be making a Live Action Disney movie of Cinderella. With my heart thumping, I quickly clicked on the image. I am transported to the world of reflective colors and glass. A smile stretched across my face as the screen zoomed out and a Glass slipper sparkled on my screen.
I still had to be sure what I saw was in fact live action and not a new animated feature. Reading the small comment below the trailer the words “Live Action” lingered. FINALLY! To my surprise that word escaped my lips and my whole family wanted to know what “finally” happened. I think we played the trailer at least 6 times.
Watch it here:
Story from the official Disney Cinderella website:
“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 (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) 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 is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and – armed with a pumpkin and a few mice – changes Cinderella’s life forever.”
After seeing the shoe and the Video, I had to make at least one printable. So I made a treat bag featuring the beautiful Glass Slipper. 😀 I have also included the printable Cinderella Cubeecrafts I made. Hopefully these printables will keep my our excitement in check as we wait for the Cinderella Release.
This movie will be in theaters March 2015. (It feels like such a long way away.)
I now have the sudden urge to watch Cinderella.
May all your Dreams Come True!
