Trivia:
Excluding the initial prologue explaining how the stepmother came into Cinderella's life and the closing wedding scene, the main story of the film takes place over approximately a 24-hour period. Cinderella starts her day with her chores, the prince's ball is that evening and she successfully tries on the lost slipper the following morning.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: After Lucifer sees Gus is under the teacup on the right tray in Cinderella's hand, he runs up to the top of the stairs to get him when she passes by, but Cinderella drops off the right tray to Drizella's room first, then the left one to Anastasia's room. Anastasia runs out of her room screaming, showing that Gus was in her teacup (the left tray) when it should have been Drizella running out, or Gus should have been on the left tray.See more »

My first movie, 16 April 2000
Author: Nunziante Valoroso (nunval@libero.it) from Aversa, Italy

This is the first movie I have ever seen and it was love at first sight. Since then I've watched it a hundred times or so and collected the video in many languages. Cinderella is wonderful, funny and rich. I know that many people remember it for the mice and Lucifer, but look at the human figures: they're (with the exception of the Prince) perfect and truly convincing. For example the relationship between Cinderella and the stepmother is strongly rendered and it's clear that the girl fears that woman. The sequence of the fairy godmother is one of the best of all Disney films (what a dream the transformation of the dress) and the ball episode is exciting and fascinating in both drawing (note the use of the shadows at a time when computer coloring was far away), dialogue and music (the Cinderella Waltz "So this is love" is enchanting).
