The first trailer for Disney's live-action Cinderella movie is here, and it looks just about perfect. Our resident Disney-phile Meredith "Killer" Woerner dubbed it "everything a live-action Disney movie should be," and I can't disagree with her. Also, Robb Stark? MOST CHARMING PRINCE CHARMING EVER.
Helena Bonham Carter makes a perfect Fairy Godmother, and Cate Blanchett and even better evil stepmother, but what I'm most impressed with is how Cinderella strikes the perfect tone all these live-action disney movies should be aiming for. It's earnest but too hokey, funny without being too clever or snarky, devoted to the original animated movie without being completely beholden to it... man, I can't think of anything bad to say. Well, I guess I could criticize some of the CG magic effects with the pumpkin carriage, but then Richard Madden pops up with those eyes and really I can't bring myself to say anything mean at all.
