Disney have released the second trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s live-action retelling of Cinderella.

Set to the sound of Ellie Goulding’s My Blood, this trailer reveals less of Ella’s transformation from pauper to princess and more of the budding romance between the girl with the glass slippers and her Prince Charming (Game of Thrones‘ Richard Madden).

Whether you see the need for yet another fairy-tale reimagining or not, there’s bundles of magic and charm to be found in Branagh’s film. Downton Abbey‘s Lily James swaps flapper dresses for a lavish ball gown and she looks every bit the Disney princess.

Starring alongside James is her Downton co-star Sophie McShera, as well as Holliday Grainger, Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter. Agent Carter‘s Hayley Atwell features as Cinderella’s Mother, while Stellan Skarsgard plays the Grand Duke.

Cinderella is set for release in the UK on 27 March 2015.
