The story of 'Cinderella' follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella into the family home. But, when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella since she used to work in the cinders, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to have courage and be kind. She will not give in to despair nor despise those who abuse her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears as if her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit. Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand as a kindly beggar woman steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella's life forever.

Revealing Mistakes
Footman was one lizard not two (at midnight, footman became 2 lizards)
The film is inspired by the fairy tale "Cinderella" by Charles Perrault, and the 1950 animated film of the same name.

Nonso Anozie and Richard Madden both appeared on Game of Thrones, though they shared no scenes.

In the glass panels of the front door of Cinderella's house, a number of, what are known as, "Hidden Mickeys" are seen. "Hidden Mickeys" can frequently be found in Disney productions, including the theme parks.

Mark Romanek was hired as the director, but he eventually dropped out due to creative differences.

Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander, and Gabriella Wilde were all considered to play Cinderella.

The short film sequel to Frozen (2013), entitled Frozen Fever (2015), will be shown before the film. It will contain a new original song written by the creators of the smash hit animated film.

Imogen Poots, Bella Heathcote, Margot Robbie, and Lily James tested for the lead role. The role went to James.

This film marks Kenneth Branagh's first collaboration with Walt Disney Pictures. Branagh also directed Thor (2011), which was distributed by Paramount Pictures, but subsequently re-branded as a Disney film.

Lily James who plays Cindrella is girlfriend of Matt Smith in real life. And Richard Madden who plays Prince Charming is boyfriend of Jenna Coleman who was Matt Smith's co-star in BBC's huge hit show Doctor Who.

Lily James's favorite part about playing Cinderella was wearing the big blue ballgown.

The lead role was offered to Emma Watson but she declined. She was later cast as Belle in Beauty and the Beast (2017)
