We’ve talked about the multiple rumors with the film, and the possible stars that could fill the lead role of Disney’s famous princess, but now we’ve found out that Lily James (Lady Rose MacClare from Downton Abbey) will play Cinderella in the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s Cinderella!
Lily beat out Emma Watson and Saorise Ronan for the part. Not too much is known about the film, yet. However, we do know that Sir Kenneth Branagh will be directing with Cate Blanchett playing the antagonistic role of the Wicked Stepmother. Filming has not begun, and we can expect to see this film sometime late in 2014.
