Disney's sparkling live-action version of the fairy tale about an ordinary girl who wins the heart of a prince. After Ella's father dies, she is left in the company of her cruel stepmother Lady Tremaine (Cate Blanchett). Dubbing her 'Cinderella' due to her always being covered in ashes, Tremaine makes Ella (Lily James) work as a servant girl. After Ella meets a dashing stranger, Kit (Richard Madden), whom she fails to recognise as a Prince, the young Cinderella begins to fall in love. But after being told by her stepmother that she cannot attend a Palace ball, she begins to believe she'll never see Kit again. That is, until her Fairy Godmother comes to her aid... Downton Abbey star Lily James takes the title role in Disney's first live-action version of this much-loved yarn. Thor director and Shakespearean supremo Kenneth Branagh is behind the camera, while the superlative cast includes Cate Blanchett and Derek Jacobi, plus Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother. Disney's animated short film 'Frozen Fever' will be screened as a special treat!
