If you’re any sort of Disney fan, then you’re familiar with the story of Cinderella — the poor child whose mother dies and is left in the care of a wicked stepmother who favors her own two daughters over Ella. The original animated Disney classic is very nearly perfection, so why then would Disney want to remake it for modern audiences? I think the answer lays in the question.
The technical abilities of movies has progressed so far in just the last few years, that Disney really can pull off a live action version of the movie. They can even give away so much in the trailer, because they know that audiences already love the story, the movie will allow new audiences to experience the story in a deeper more nuanced way.
When you look at these photos that were provided by Disney Studios to promote the film, you can see how richly detailed the world created for this movie is. From amazing costumes to set decorations that are over the top. There’s lots of scenery to be chewed as well. And yes, there are friendly mice and a fairy godmother as well.
