Cinderelly, Cinderelly, look what they’ve done to you, Cinderelly. But seriously, this is the one live action adaptation I don’t understand. It’s going to make oodles of money sure, those glass slippers look damn good (but them heels gurl), and it’s great that Kenneth Branagh is directing another film, but the trailer makes it seem like it’s a straight rip of Disney’s animated version. There are few bumps here and there that ruin the simplicity of the story, but hey, I could be totally wrong here.
I mean, I was wrong about folks’ anticipation for Rodgers & Hammenstein’s Cinderella, A Cinderella Story, Another Cinderella Story, Ella Enchanted, A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song, Cinderella II: Dreams Come True, Cinderelmo…I’m sure you get my drift by now. Cinderella opens March 13, 2015.
