Disney has released the trailer for its remake of the 1950 animated film, Cinderella. The clip shows Lily James as Ella, Cate Blanchett as the "Wicked Stepmother" (just perfect), and Helena Bonham Carter as "The Fairy Godmother," all wearing costumes that require a hard pause on the video. Hold your white horses, though. The romantic fantasy hits theaters on March 13th, 2015.
