First look at Lily James in Disney's star-studded “Cinderella”

PanARMENIAN.Net - A first look picture from Disney's live action version of Cinderella has been released, Digital Spy said.

The picture shows Cinderella, played by Downton Abbey star Lily James, riding a white horse.

Walt Disney Pictures on September 23 announced that principal photography has begun on the film, which is the first live action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale.

Director Kenneth Branagh said: "It is impossible to think of Cinderella without thinking of Disney and the timeless images we've all grown up watching. And those classic moments are irresistible to a filmmaker.

"With Lily James we have found our perfect Cinderella. She combines knockout beauty with intelligence, wit, fun and physical grace. Her Prince is being played by Richard Madden, a young actor with incredible power and charisma. He is funny, smart and sexy and a great match for Cinderella."

Captain America: The First Avenger star Hayley Atwell recently revealed she had been cast as Cinderella's biological mother in the film.

Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Sophie McShera and Holliday Grainger will also star in the film.

Cinderella is scheduled for release in 2015.
