It seems Helena Bonham Carter is going to continue working with Walt Disney Studios. The star of both The Lone Ranger and Alice in Wonderland has joined the cast of Disney’s live action Cinderella. This is an interesting bit of casting as Carter and Cinderella’s director, Kenneth Branagh, worked together before on Branagh’s Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein.
Official Press Release: Helena Bonham Carter (The Lone Ranger) has been cast as the fairy godmother in Disney’s upcoming live-action feature Cinderella, directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh (Thor). Previously announced casting includes Cate Blanchett (Lord of the Rings) as the wicked stepmother, Lily James (Downtown Abby) in the title role and Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) as the prince.
Cinderella is slated for a 2014 release.
