Cinderella Disney Movie


The Cinderella Disney Movie is released today, but I was lucky enough to get a sneek preview earlier this week.  I was pleasantly surprised by the movie and how much I liked it.  I mean, we all know the story of Cinderella so I wasn’t sure what could make this movie different.  But it was an awesome movie!

Cinderella is a  live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale, “Cinderella”.  It brings to life the timeless images from Disney’s 1950 animated masterpiece as fully-realized characters in a visually-dazzling spectacle for a whole new generation.  It takes a story of a weak girl and gives us a new, stronger character who doesn’t wait around for Mr. Right, she finds him herself and takes her future into her own hands.

cindereall more

I was blown away by many aspects of the movie. The music was amazing and perfectly fit for the scenes for which it was used.  There are no words for the costumes!  My favorite was the wedding dress at the end but the ball gown above was breathtaking as well.  I later learned it took over 500 man hours to make the blue ball ball gown and that the wedding dress had hand painted flowers.  I would not be surprised at all if this movie wins costume awards.

My two most favorite parts were when the fairy godmother turned mice, pumpkins, ect into the coach, coachmen, and horses and then again when they turned back into their normal characters.  These scenes were fantastically done and also quite funny.

Another surprise I got from the movie was that I cried 3 times!  I know-crazy!  But this version of the movie shows more detail about the death of Cinderella’s parents and the scenes were very touching.

All in all, I LOVED the Cinderella Disney movie and highly suggest you take the chance to go see it.

I can’t give a review of the movie without also discussing the Frozen Fever clip at the beginning of the movie. If you have a Frozen fan, they will love the movie simply for this part.  The clip brought back all of our favorite Frozen characters and gave us just enough of them to want even more of them in the future!
