Disney's live-action Cinderella underway
Walt Disney's live-action adaptation of Cinderella, starring Lily James as Cinderella.

Principal photography for Disney's live-action adaptation of Cinderella has started at Pinewood Studios in London.

Disney's first live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale stars Downton Abbey's Lily James as Cinderella, Game of Thrones' Richard Madden as Prince, Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother Lady Tremaine and Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother.

On his cast choices, director Kenneth Branagh said: "With Lily James, we have found our perfect Cinderella. She combines knockout beauty with intelligence, wit, fun and physical grace.

"Her Prince is being played by Richard Madden, a young actor with incredible power and charisma. He is funny, smart and sexy and a great match for Cinderella."

The movie is scheduled for a March 12 release in 2015.
