Cinderella 

 

My interest in the live action version of Cinderella has been really high. I was very curious to see what Disney did with it. My hubby also told me we had a reader express interest in this movie. I saw Cinderella on Black Friday for ten dollars. It is the Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD version. That was a deal I could not pass up. Especially since we requested a reviewable copy and never received a professional response.

The story in the live action of Cinderella is a bit different in a few parts from what I remember seeing in other renditions. The evil step mother destroys the second glass slipper and not the first one. Cinderella meets the prince in the woods and only knows him as Mister Kit. The evil step mother made a deal with a Duke to hide Cinderella from the prince, so he would marry a princess from another country.

With the differences aside, I still enjoyed Cinderella. It is a very clean movie. There are women in Cinderella that show off some cleavage. The step sisters fight like cats and dogs. The step mother is a character that is vile, and wicked. It is really easy to strongly dislike the step mother in Cinderella. Her motives are interesting and explored in this version of Cinderella.

The bonus content in Cinderella are Frozen Fever, A Fairy Tale Comes to Life, Staging the Ball, Alternative Opening Ella's Childhood, Ella's Furry Friends, and more. How Ella gets the name Cinderella is very interesting. This movie also shows why marrying a second time can be a bad thing. Poor Cinderella is in a horrible position living in her house under the rule of a step mother who does not want her or care about her.

The fairy godmother makes an appearance in Cinderella. She is an odd character who uses some form of magic to help Cinderella at that crucial juncture. Cinderella makes it a long ways when the clock starts to chime at midnight. She is also in some peril as the pumpkin begins to shrink. It is a short scene that played out in a way I was not expecting. I thought Cinderella would hop out before it began to shrink.

The biggest lesson in Cinderella is to be kind, and be courageous. The prince does not honor his father the king. He does follow his own heart, and marry the woman he loves. Cinderella floats the concept of having an heir. We do not see if that happens or not by the end of Cinderella. I wanted to know if they had children, and whether they were boys and/or girls.
