Walt Disney Pictures has released a trailer preview for their upcoming reboot Cinderella, ahead of the full-length trailer's debut on Wednesday, November 19 on ABC's Good Morning America. The studio released a trailer back in May, but it didn't include any footage from director Kenneth Branagh's fairy tale drama.
Although it's only 15 seconds, we do get to see Game of Thrones star Richard Madden as the charming Kit. Lily James stars as Ella, who is spitefully renamed Cinderella by her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera). Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind."
Cinderella is not given in to despair nor will she despise those who mistreat her. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, but her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. 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. Check out this tease, then check back in soon for the full trailer this Wednesday:
