You may be familiar with Lily James as Downton Abbey's Lady Rose, and now she takes on a bigger – albeit equally charming – position as Disney's modern day Cinderella...

Disney is having more than its usual moment in the spotlight lately, with the news that there is a modern-day update of Cinderella in the works... Iconic crystal glass slippers included.

The first trailer from the film, which features Cate Blanchett as a wicked stepmother, is somewhat breathtaking to Disney enthusiasts and non-fans alike, and stars 25-year-old Lily James as the title character, and Helena Bonham Carter as a fabulously eccentric fairy godmother. If you're wondering why she may be familiar, James has made a name for herself already as Lady Rose in Britain's super-popular period drama, Downton Abbey.

A short clip reveals that the slippers are, in fact, intact – and in this age, made from Swarovski crystals with a "comfortable" shape based upon a shoe from the 1890s.

Watch for yourself below, now:
