Kenneth Branagh (Valkyrie, Rabbit Proof Fence) and writer Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass) have recognised the innate beauty behind the story of Ella and her evil stepsisters.

Retaining the iconic elements of the original film – pumpkin coach, mice, magic and glass slipper, but expanding the story and deepening the characters, this revision of one of the best-known fairy tales is a fresh, 21st century adaptation with a twist and boasts a starry cast.
