Will Hermione trade Hogwarts Castle for the King’s Castle? It looks like her portrayer Emma Watson may do just that – in the live action Disney adaption of Cinderella.

Variety is reporting that Watson is in very early talks with Disney to play Cinderella in a live action adaption. Cate Blanchett is down to play the wicked stepmother.

The Cinderella adaption follows recent strides Disney has made with fairy tales including Alice in Wonderland, the new Oz: The Great and Powerful with James Franco, and Maleficent, based on Sleeping Beauty & starring Angelina Jolie.

Production would begin in 2014. Disney has not commented on the matter. Gabriella Wilde, Imogen Poots, and Alicia Vikander were previously in talks.
