Cinderella Cast in Disney Live Action Remake

From the director of Thor?

Apparently Disney isn’t only remaking Sleeping Beauty (aka Maleficent) as a live action movie. Disney has just announced that Cinderella has been cast in their next live action adaptation. Here is the official press release from Disney:

Actress Lily James (Downton Abbey) has been cast as Cinderella in Disney’s upcoming live-action interpretation of the beloved classic tale. The film is being directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh (Thor, Henry The V) and stars Cate Blanchett (The Hobbit) as the iconic evil stepmother.

The screenplay is being written by Aline Brosh McKenna (We Bought a Zoo) and Chris Weitz (American Pie)

Cinderella has a release date of 2014. Oddly enough, that is the same release year for Maleficent. 

 Disney promises more announcements in the coming weeks.

Great.  Disney continues the stereotype of women being anorexicly thin in order to be "beautiful princesses."  Well done, Disney.  My two daughers thank you for your contributions to screwing them up (something I am perfectly capable of doing without your help).

Let's hear it for the next generation of body dismorphia!

 Guys Disney didn't send the pic. I posted this one so we all know what she looks like. Google some Downtown Abby pics... she looks normal

Two things:

1) If we're going to be quick with the put-downs, shouldn't we be just as quick with apologies? No?

2) Is it taboo to ever cast a thin woman in a role now, for fear of being raked over hot coals for it?

 She looks pretty healthy to me and not anorexic skinny. Just adequately slim.

With all due respect to Capt and anyone with daughters who finds this wrong but hasn't the pendulum swung too far the other way in today's America.

 Wiseguy...I agree with you.  She looks fine.  When you eat healthy foods and excercise regularly you often turn out looking like that.  It's funny how it has become politically incorrect to make derogatory remarks about someone who is overweight but it's open season for name calling on those that don't have a muffin top hanging over their jeans. Last i heard childhood obesity is a bigger problem in this country than anorexia.

Oh...and I have two daughters, who are self motivated to stay in shape...they don't get any prodding from me.
