Disney Casts Lily James As “Cinderella”

It has taken a while, but Disney has finally found the title star of its upcoming live-action “Cinderella” feature.

“Downton Abbey” and “Wrath of the Titans” star Lily James will play the legendary girl in the Kenneth Branagh directed project, alongside Cate Blanchett as her evil stepmother.

“Harry Potter” star Emma Watson was in talks to star as the princess, but a deal never closed. The project was first set up at Disney three years ago.
