Playing The Stars of 'Cinderella' Reveal What Their Magic Wish Would Be

Cinderella is one of the most beloved tales in Disney's long history, and now, with the live-action adaptation of the classic story hitting screens, a whole new generation will get to enjoy the enchantment and wonder of this timeless princess tale.

One of the most spectacular and fantastical elements in the film is Cinderella's wish-granting fairy godmother -- played by Helena Bonham Carter -- and when all the stars turned out for the film's world premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, they knew exactly to wish for if they had their own fairy godmother.

"I would ask for my family to be well, and healthy and happy for the rest of their lives," said star Richard Madden, who plays Prince Charming. "And an Aston Martin as well, maybe."

Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer had a similar idea of how to really make good use of a wish.

"World peace," Spencer said, before adding, "And then a lot of shoes."

Comedian Josh Gad, who voiced Olaf in the Disney megahit Frozen, was also ready to wish! "If I had a fairy godmother, [I'd ask for] a magical elixir to get thin whenever I wanted to," Gad joked. "Bibbidi, bobbidi, lose the weight immediately."

As for Cate Blanchett -- who stars as the Lady Tremaine, a.k.a. The Wicked Stepmother -- has a wish that would be more intangible.

"Time," Blanchett answered, simply. "I'd always ask for more time. There's never enough time."
