Well hey there Disney lovers. So it seems like there are two things that Disney can’t get enough of:
- The new remakes and twists of old Disney classics, and
Am I right or right? RIGHT! Both these things have made Disney even more pronounced than it already was (if that’s possible).
Anyway, following the success of the remake of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent (which by the way made me a “Disney Villains (excluding Claude Frollo, he was way too evil) over Disney Princesses kinda guy”), Disney decided to continue on a streak of remaking its classics.
This time, it’s taking on the most famous of all princesses *drumroll please* CINDERELLA, Ella for short according to the new movie.
It might not have as many avenues to twist the story plot as Disney had with Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent, but there are a few things we are excited about. One of which is Cate Blanchett acting as wicked stepmother, Lady Tremaine. That should be a good one, she is definitely one who can pull of sinister *evil chuckle*.
Second thing to watch out for, Bellatrix Lestrange is the fairy godmother! Ok, the crazy witch who killed Sirius Black (hurts my heart every time I watch Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), isn’t exactly the fairy godmother- now that would be twisted! Helena Bonham Carter, who acted as Bella Lestrange is acting as the fairy godmother. She left those grey and black robes for a white poofy dress. Will the fairy godmother be as eccentric as the actress’s other magic wand wielding character?
And lastly, Robb Stark really is Prince Charming! Ok, maybe not exactly (again)…but Richard Madden who acts as Ned Stark’s son, Robb, in the HBO series Game of Thrones is acting as Prince Charming in the movie! Let’s just say it’s just as “nice” to see Richard Madden in his princely element as Prince Charming as it is when he’s battling for the throne in GoT *wink wink*
And, lest we forget! You know how you heard Let it Go or Do You Wanna Build a Snowman? all over during Christmas? Yeah, Frozen was here to stay during Christmas ’14 and looks like it’s here to stay still.
It was a really great movie, and watching it the first time, it was full of so many surprises (s/o to Prince Hans of the Southern Aisles…we thought he was so cool and lovable until he wasn’t! He might be the most evil Disney villain ever…actually no, Claude Frollo *shivers*).
Well, still sorta revelling in the Frozen era, Disney has created a short film, Frozen Fever with the Frozen characters, that is said to be showing ahead of the new Cinderella movie, when it hits theatres on March 13th this year. It’s almost like an appetiser-main course kinda thing.
It’s Anna’s birthday in the short film and it’s the perfect occasion for Elsa to be on her ice queen flow, Olaf to be as cute as ever (it doesn’t get cuter than Olaf) and Kristoff and Sven’s bro-reindeer bromance.
So keep your eye out, Frozen Fever and Cinderella are coming to theatres near you!
