Following the success of films like 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Maleficent' (two films not highly regarded by critics, but highly regarded by people who like buying movie tickets), it wasn't a surprise that Disney would continue the trend of adapting some of their classic animated tales into live-action movies. Today, we get our first real look at their next effort, a live-action version of one of their most revered tales, 'Cinderella'.

After the success of 'Alice in Wonderland' (over $1 billion - yes, with a B - worldwide), Disney has been hot to reboot their Disney princess movies.
