Get a closer look at Helena Bonham Carter's eccentric fairy godmother in second trailer for Disney's Cinderella

A short second trailer for Disney's lavish new adaptation of Cinderella has been unveiled, scroll down and click to watch it. 

The preview, which is just a minute-long, offers up a longer look at Helena Bonham Carter's suitably eccentric take of the role of the fairy godmother, as well as showing off the film's spectacular effects. 

The film stars Downton Abbey's Lily James as the title character, with Cate Blanchett taking on the role of Cinderella's cruel stepmother and Holliday Grainger and Sophie McShera as her daughters Anastasia and Drisella.

One-time Game Of Thrones' star Richard Madden plays Prince Charming, Hayley Atwell, Stellan Skarsgård and Derek Jacobi also feature in the supporting cast for the fairy tale. 

The movie is directed by Kenneth Branagh, with a script from Aline Brosh McKenna and Chris Weitz. It is due to open on March 13th in the US and March 27th in the UK next year. 

Speaking about the film, Branagh said: "It is impossible to think of Cinderella without thinking of Disney and the timeless images we've all grown up watching. And those classic moments are irresistible to a filmmaker."
