This year’s winner of the Oscar for Best Actress, Cate Blanchett, is set to shine in her portrayal of the evil stepmother in Disney’s Cinderella remake.

Blanchett’s performance was praised during a sneak preview at CinemaCon.

Cinderella is only one is a massive range of classic Disney movies, so much so that we are getting a bit sceptical.

Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolieis due for release next month while two separate versions of The Jungle Book are being remade also.

It has also been said that the 2015 remake of Cinderella has many similarities to the 1950s original in terms of storyline and costume design.

Which could never be a bad thing!

Helena Bonham Carter is set to take on the role of the fairy godmother. Surprisingly, Johnny Depp and Tim Burton are nowhere in sight.

Lily James who plays the cheeky Rose in Downton Abbey will star in the lead role of Cinderella while her Prince Charming will be portrayed by Game of Thrones star Richard Madden.
