Disney's Cinderella will receive a worldwide IMAX release.

Walt Disney Studios announced today (February 10) that the live-action fairytale epic will be screened on giant IMAX screens beginning on March 13 in the US and March 27 in the UK.

The IMAX release will be simultaneous in cinemas all across the world, the studio has confirmed.

IMAX executive Greg Foster announced the deal: "Based on the timeless classic, Cinderella now is a visually breathtaking live-action gem from the hugely talented [director] Kenneth Branagh, with whom we're thrilled to partner again, as well as the wonderful team at Disney.

"Having been fortunate to see the movie several weeks ago, we believe Cinderella will resonate with movie-goers from around the globe, and we can't wait to share it with IMAX audiences worldwide."

Sir Kenneth Branagh's new adaptation of the classic story casts Downton Abbey's Lily James as 'Ella' and Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden as her Prince Charming.

Their blossoming romance is threatened by Ella's vengeful stepmother Lady Tremaine (Cate Blanchett) and her wicked stepsisters (Holliday Grainger and Sophie McShera).

This version of Cinderella will be largely based on the 1950s animated classic, with Aline Brosh McKenna and Chris Weitz adapting it for the screen.
