There are so many versions of Cinderella’s story that I’m pretty sure we’ve all lost count, and even Disney itself has got a few, which now includes the live-action version of their originally animated Cinderella. And while the story has the possibility of becoming tiresome and worn out, the new trailer for the film, which stars Lily James in the title role and the wonderful Cate Blanchett as her evil stepmother, looks fantastic, I must say.

The trailer, along with the sneak peek for the film, is filled with magic, beautiful costumes and settings, and that airy, breathless way that people talk to make the film seem even more dream-like. And what’s even better about Cinderella is that Disney could release a million trailers for it, but nothing would ever be spoiled because, well, we already know what happens!

Cinderella opens in theaters March 26, 2015 and also stars Helena Bonham-Carter as the Fairy Godmother, Richard Madden as Prince Charming, Hayley Atwell, and Stellan Skarsgard.
