Dreams really do come true!
I’m beginning to feel like a Disney princess. Just last month I was honored to travel to Skywalker Ranch for the #StrangeMagicEvent… and now I have been cordially invited to very royal affair. In just a few short weeks, I will be traveling to Los Angeles to meet up with 24 other amazing, top bloggers and walk the red carpet at the Cinderella premiere at the El Capitan Theatre!
Not only will I have the chance to see the stars walk the red carpet, I will be strutting down the carpet with my fellow bloggers. BUT before the premiere, as a special treat, JcPenney and Disney have invited us to attend the “Glam Ball!” At the “Glam Ball” the JcPenney salon will style our hair, touch-up our make-up, and help accessorize our outfits to give us the royal finishing touches! Now all I have to do is find the perfect dress!
To top off our trip, we will be attending a press junket and interviewing some of the cast and filmmakers from the movie.
Here is the Press Day Line Up:
- Lily James (Cinderella)
- Richard Madden (The Prince)
- Cate Blanchett (Lady Tremaine)
- Kenneth Branagh (Director)
- Sandy Powell (3-time Academy Award winning Costume Designer)
- Chris Buck & Jennifer Lee (Frozen Fever Directors)
Follow along with me (2/28-3/2) on this #CinderellaEvent fairytale adventure!

CINDERELLA opens in theaters March 13, 2015!
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ all-new short “FROZEN FEVER,” which welcomes Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf back to the big screen, will open in front of Disney’s CINDERELLA!
The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham Carter) steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella’s life forever.
A live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale, “Cinderella” brings to life the timeless images from Disney’s 1950 animated masterpiece as fully-realized characters in a visually-dazzling spectacle for a whole new generation.
Directed by Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh (“Thor,” “Hamlet”) and starring Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “Elizabeth”), Lily James (“Downton Abbey”), Richard Madden (“Game of Thrones”) and Academy Award nominee Helena Bonham Carter (“The King’s Speech,” “Alice in Wonderland”), “Cinderella” is produced by Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “Elysium”), Allison Shearmur (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part I”) and David Barron (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”) with Tim Lewis (“Goldeneye”) serving as executive producer. The screenplay is by Chris Weitz (“About a Boy,” “The Golden Compass”).
“Cinderella” will be released through Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures on March 13, 2015.
Don’t wait until midnight!
