Oh hey, Disney fans. Ready to see your favorite Disney Princess come to life? Because production has officially begun for Cinderella, the live-action movie!
Disney announced today in a press release that principal photography, aka shooting, is now underway for the film, which is the first live-action movie version of Cinderella. It’s currently filming at Pinewood Studios in London, England, which, fun fact, is the same studio where Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth filmed Snow White and the Huntsman in late 2011. Guess Disney has a thing for the UK, eh?
Lily James, who is now most famous for playing Lady Rose McClare on Downtown Abbey, plays Cinderella in the film, but A-Listers like Cate Blanchette (who plays the evil step-mother) and Helena Bonham Carter (who plays the fairy godmother) round out the gorgeous, British cast.
The movie doesn’t come out until March of 2015, so we guess this photo of Lily on a horse will have to suffice for now. Thanks, Disney!
