I have added two MQ pictures of Helena on the set of Cinderella, published by The Telegraph.
Kenneth Branagh: Helena Bonham Carter plays a deliciously ditzy and well-meaning fairy godmother who seems not necessarily to be in perfect control of her powers. We see here that look of slight apprehension. Helena wanted a touch of the yummy mummy and talked about Mae West and Marilyn Monroe. She was also very keen to have wings. Sandy was a little anti-wing to begin with, but came around. Her dress was lit from the inside – there’s a whole disco rig underneath there – and we had guys following her with a battery, so it would light up when she lifted her wand. We had real and CGI pumpkins, plus a huge inflatable one. This is made from polystyrene and the sculptors inserted a weight because we wanted it to have the weight of a real pumpkin.
I have upgraded the Cinderella stills with higher resolution versions, and added one extra thanks to Lily-James.com. If you have been following the official Cinderella tumblr, you will know that they have been releasing photos and GIFs in the countdown to the film’s release; I’ve added two of the Fairy Godmother pictures to the gallery.
I’m probably a little late to the party here (I’ve been busy with university), but has anyone checked out the official website for Cinderella? How about their Tumblr page? You can download some cute gifs like this one:
And Helena features on the soundtrack! I didn’t even realise she would be singing in Cinderella!
The London premiere of Cinderella will be held Thursday 19th March at Odeon Leicester Square; while Helena did not attend the LA premiere, she is likely to attend the one in London.
I have added 91 MQ pictures of Helena looking absolutely stunning in black while attending the premiere of Cinderella at the Berlin International Film Festival this evening. Does Helena actually age…?
Helena is currently in attendance at the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival, where she was photographed at the press conference for Cinderella, with fellow co-stars Cate Blanchett and Lily James. I have added 87 MQ pictures to the gallery.
Another trailer for Cinderella has been released! There’s not much new in terms of Helena footage, but we do hear a lot more of her!
We now finally have a poster of Helena as the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella!
