Game Of Thrones actor Richard Madden, who plays Prince, says Cinderella brings to life the timeless images from Disney's 1950s animated masterpiece.

"I love the relationship in this film between the Prince and Cinderella," he says. "It's a fairytale painting. It surpasses what the animation could ever do and it makes it even more breathtaking."

Watch Lily and Richard in the clip below:

Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella [Lily James] whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother.

Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine [Cate Blanchett] and her daughters Anastasia [Holliday Grainger] and Drizella [Sophie McShera] into the family home, but when Ella's father suddenly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family.

Despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honour her mother's dying words, and it's not long before she meets a dashing stranger in the woods. Unaware that he is really a Prince [Richard Madden], Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul.
