The Stupidest Trailer/Teaser I’ve Ever Wasted My Time On: Disney’s Live Action Cinderella

Disney’s live action version of Cinderella is not due to hit theaters until March of next year.  But they decided to put up a teaser anyway. 

Disney sent me a link in my email, and YouTube has the clip as well. 

From Variety:
“Downton Abbey’s” Lily James stars as Cinderella with Cate Blanchett as her step-mother. Richard Madden, Stellan Skarsgård, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Derek Jacobi and Helena Bonham-Carter also co-star.

The film is directed by Kenneth Branagh (“Thor”), exec produced by Tim Lewis and produced by Simon Kinberg, Allison Shearmur and David Barron. “Cinderella” is inspired by Disney’s 1950 animated film.

And that’s all the information you need, and that you’re going to get at this moment in time.  So will the Teaser get you all excited and want to head to the theater next spring?  No, but it might make you think about taking a stroll to the nearest shoe store.

The video consists of a shoe, twirling and spinning around.  That’s it.  Nothing more.  So if watching one minute and fifteen seconds of a glass shoe is your idea of fun, have at it.


  1. You.forgot to mention the butterfly. There goes the spoiler.

  2. Oh yeah. I forgot that. Is Glenn Close playing Cinderella?
