The trailer for Disney's live action "Cinderella" has been released, and the classic children's story proves to be as magical as ever as within the first 24 hours, the trailer was viewed 4.2 million times on Youtube and 33 million times on Facebook. This is the biggest showing in history for a Disney movie, excluding Marvel releases.
While "Cinderella" has been rebooted several times over the past years with Whitney Houston and Brandy's musical version, and Drew Barrymore's "Ever After" getting critical acclaim for its depiction of a stronger and more independent lead character, the 2015 version is staying true to the original story, but with subtle changes.
The latest "Cinderella" version keeps most of the story intact— the heroine is still maltreated by her stepmother and her equally vindictive stepsisters, and she still has to leave the ball at the stroke of midnight. And of course, her magical transformation aided by her fairy godmother is one of the scenes that can be viewed in the trailer. more >>
