Lily James in \"Cinderella\" (2015)

Disney's much-anticipated "Cinderella" movie comes out today starring "Downton Abbey" actress Lily James in the very elegant title role and as one of Disney's most famous princesses. The movie is just one of a plethora of blockbusters that Disney is releasing this year.

Based on the classic 1950 Disney animated movie, "Cinderella" will also feature Cate Blanchett as Cinderella's mean stepmother Lady Tremaine, Helena Bohnam Carter as the Fairy Godmother, Richard Madden as Prince Charming and Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgrd as the Grand Duke.

The sure-to-be-magical movie will likely top the box office this weekend and bring in the big bucks, which is usually the case with Disney's live-action movies, such as last year's "Maleficent" starring Angelina Jolie and the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie series starring Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley.
