There are few filmmakers in world cinema you’d feel more comfortable with adapting the classic fairytale Cinderella, than Kenneth Branagh. His ability to draw the best out of actors is evident in this project, while the enchantment is palpable.

We had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with the revered British filmmakers to discuss the project. We spoke of;

– Remaining faithful to traditionalism

– Decision not to modernise the tale

– Feeling pressure adapting such a celebrated narrative

– On casting Lily James

– Collaborating with Disney for the first time

– Whether he’ll be bringing Shakespeare to the big screen again

– If we may see him back in the Marvel Universe

Cinderella is released on March 27th. You can read our interview with star Hayley Atwell here.
