You don't want Cate Blanchett for a stepmother.
In the latest, dazzling trailer for Disney's live-action Cinderella, Blanchett makes wicked look good with her red lipstick and flawless pale skin. Playing the character of Lady Tremaine -- Cinderella's wicked stepmother -- the Oscar winner even goes so far as to break the iconic glass slipper in order to keep her stepchild -- who she refers to as a "rabid servant girl"-- from her one true love, Prince Charming (played by former Game of Thrones star Richard Madden).
Meanwhile, Prince Charming is also encouraged to forget about Cinderella and marry someone that could benefit the kingdom. "You are not free to follow your heart," the Grand Duke (Stellan Skarsgard) tells the young royal.
There is something noticeably missing from this whimsical trailer. There's not enough Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother!
Newcomer Lily James, 25, plays Cinderella in this retelling of the classic story, but will the movie live up to its fairy tale? Cinderella hits theaters March 13, 2015.
Back in March of last year, ET spoke with Blanchett about her real-life Cinderella moment and her answer is a great example of the actress' dry sense of humor. Check out our chat, below.
