Watch as the stars of Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones stun in new Cinderella trailer

If you were a massive fan of Angelina Jolie's Maleficent this year then we've got good news, as the real-action version of Cinderella is set to hit the big screen in March 2015 and we've got the brand new trailer for you to swoon over. 

Starring Lily James in the title role, who you'll recognise as Lady Rose from Downton Abbey, the story stays true to its roots with the main narrative focusing on Cinders, or rather 'Ella' in this case, becoming a live-in slave to her step-mother and step-sisters after her father goes away on business.

One day Ella meets a handsome prince, played by Robb Stark Richard Madden, and while they fall in love it's not clear when she will see him again. But then a ball is taking place at the palace and lucky Ella gets the chance to go. That is until her wicked step-mother and sisters ruin her lovely dress, that once belonged to her mother. 

But all is not lost as her fairy godmother, played by the brilliant Helena Bonham-Carter, comes along and rescues her ensures that she gets to the ball in her glass slippers. 

While the story is an old favourite and we all probably know the ending, the trailer looks like it's going to be a visually spectacular film, which has been directed by Kenneth Branagh, and boasts a superb all-star cast, including Cate Blanchett as the evil step-mother and Hayley Atwell playing Ella's real mother. 

Watch the trailer below and tell us what you think.
