I received a copy of Cinderella to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I’m so excited to announce that Cinderella is officially out on Blu-ray combo pack, digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere.
This film is amazing. It is the classic Cinderella story featuring a more modern interpretation. However, the classic Cinderella components are still in this film. There are adorable animals, hilariously wicked stepsisters and a zany Fairy Godmother.
When Ella is severely mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters, she decides to take action.
I love that this film portrays Cinderella as a heroine. She takes charge and tries to change her life.
An appearance by her Fairy Godmother makes all of Ella’s dream a reality.
The dress is stunning, the shoes are sparkling and the carriage is very beautiful. It is a magical transformation.
After the Fairy Godmother works her magic, Ella attends a glittering ball and meets a handsome prince.
When the prince comes searching for Ella, her evil stepmother works to hide her away.
However, as in all fairytales, there is a very happy ending.
We saw this film in a movie theater and loved watching it in our own home.
Even though I’ve already seen it, I was just as enchanted while watching the DVD.
This DVD is packed with more than 12 minutes of additional scenes, including:
- A Fairy Tale Comes to Life
- Costume Test Fun
- Staging the Ball
- Ella’s Furry Friends
- Frozen Fever
- Alternate Opening: Ella’s Childhood
Here is the alternate opening to the film from the DVD’s bonus features.
This film stars Cate Blanchett, Lily James, Richard Madden, Stellan Skarsgård, Holliday Grainger, Derek Jacobi and Helena Bonham Carter. It is produced by David Baron, Simon Kinberg and Allison Shearmur. It is directed by Kenneth Branagh.
