    A First Look at Disney's Strong and Sexy Cinderella

    Here is our first look at Lily James as Cinderella!Riding a horse while showing more skin than the classic 1950 animated character ever revealed, this new image of Rella is just the first indication of the changes that Disney has in store.

    Disney states that the look, crafted by "Cinderella" director Kenneth Branagh, honors the tradition of the iconic princess while giving it a new spin of Branagh's own, according to a statement released on Monday.
    "She combines knockout beauty with intelligence, wit, fun, and physical grace," Branagh says of the Lily James version.

    Best known as Lady Rose MacClare on "Downton Abbey," James's Rella has flowing blonde hair and wears a dress that looks somewhat similar to the animated Cinderella's ball gown. Cinderella's outfit also shows off some ... wait for it ... cleavage! And no, the original Disney character didn't come close to showing as much.
    Seen gamboling through a field on horseback, Cinderella looks to be a strong and capable horsewoman — an aspect of the character that hasn't been seen much of in the past. Overall, the image suggests that while this "Cinderella" will still be a period piece, it will give its leading character a more modern and independent streak than Cinderellas of yore.

    In spite of the updates Cinderella — which include a name change — Branagh plans to honor our favorite moments from '50s animated feature. "It is impossible to think of Cinderella without thinking of Disney and the timeless images we’ve all grown up watching. And those classic moments are irresistible to a filmmaker," he says.

    Matching the updated look, the first official synopsis included in Disney's statement reveals that Branagh and screen writer Chris Weitz ("About A Boy" and "The Golden Compass") are giving the beloved fairy tale a few modernish twists. In their version, Cinderella begins the story as Ella. Her new name is actually a mean-spirited insult given to her by her Stepmother (played by Cate Blanchett), who turns her into a lowly servant after the death of her mother.

    While riding through the woods, Ella meets a handsome stranger who she believes works at the nearby Royal Palace. It turns out, he's really the charming Prince (Richard Madden of "Game of Thrones"), which certainly puts a different spin on their romance. And when Ella is prevented from attending a ball at the Palace by her hard-hearted stepmother and ill-mannered sisters (Holliday Grainger and Sophie McShera), she's given some unexpected help by an elderly beggar woman (Helena Bonham Carter) — who turns out to be more than Ella could ever imagine. Can you say Fairy Godmother?

    "Cinderella" is currently scheduled to dance into theaters on March 13, 2015.

    I watched the trailer and it bored the shit out of me. There is one Cinderella adaptation with Kathleen Turner as a Evil Stepmother that was quite good, this Disney crap is all too much. On the other hand, Branagh can do over to top quite well (see Much Ado) but I'm not sure that it works with this. You really can't make Cindy independent and sexy, at least before the ball. If she is this spunky goddess who rides through the forest with bare tits, then why would she tolerate the abuse from her family?

    People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.
