HELENA BONHAM CARTER WILL PLAY CINDERELLA'S FAIRY GODMOTHER


We already know Downton Abbey's Lily James will play the title character and Cate Blanchett will play the wickes stepmother (be still my beating heart!), and now we know Helena Bonham Carter will play Cinderella's fairy godmother in Kenneth Branagh's live-action version of the classic fairytale. She'll reportedly have a more substantial role than in the Disney animation, initially in disguise as an old beggar watching over Cinderella. Production design will be courtesy of Dante Ferretti, and Sandy Powell's doing the costumes, so it'll certainly be a splendiferous spectacle!
