Walt Disney Pictures has finally made wishes come true as it releases the synopsis, poster and a live action teaser trailer of "Cinderella."
The teaser trailer features a close-up look of the infamous glass slipper and a butterfly fluttering around it before eventually landing on top of the slipper.
"And yes, that's pretty much it," E! Online remarked in a 154 words report about the teaser trailer release.
No Cinderella, no Prince Charming and definitely no appearance of the Fairy Godmother or the cruel stepmother. But there is the Cinderella glass slipper, dazzling and showing off in a one minute and 16 seconds video clip released by Disney on May 15.
Apparently, the level of satisfaction with what the trailer contains has varied reactions among the public and media reporters.
"Instead of any footage for the movie - which is still in post-production - it's just a minute-long, fancied-up clip of a terribly uncomfortable-looking shoe, complete with crystallized butterfly," MTV news reported.
A guy named Michael commented on the article titled, "'Cinderella' Teaser Shoes Us Nothing" and slightly rebuffed MTV's statement saying a picture of one shoe is enough since apparently everyone knows what the movie is all about.
Daily Mail has been more focused on the non-existent characters in the trailer of "Cinderella" classic tale remake that it goes to report about who will be playing what.
The new "Cinderella" movie, starring Lily James as "Cinderella," Richard Madden as "Prince Charming," Helena Bonham Carter as "Fairy Godmother" and Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother "Lady Tremaine," is set to hit the theaters in March 2015.
Kenneth Branagh, who will be playing the role of Prof. Lockhart in the movie, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," will be directing the movie.
"The story of "Cinderella" follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries after the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother, Lady Tremaine, and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella into the family home. But when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family," Disney wrote.
