Disney released a sneak peek at its upcoming film Cinderella on Wednesday, appropriately enough, at midnight.

The 60-second video, posted on the movie's official Twitter account, offers more glimpses at the fairy godmother, the glass slippers, the coach and other iconic images associated with the fairy tale. (Watch below.)

Kenneth Branagh directs the live-action retelling of the classic story, starring Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother and Downton Abbey's Lily James as Ella.

When the trailer for the movie was released in November, it was viewed 4.2 million times on YouTube and 33 million times on Facebook in the first 24 hours, the biggest showing in history for a Disney movie, excluding Marvel releases.

Disney said in December that it will unveil a new short film, Frozen Fever, in front of screenings of Cinderella.
