At the end of the end credits, there is a tribute to the original Cinderella (1950) movie. It reads; "This film would not have been possible without the inspiration from the original motion picture and the work of its talented artist and animators."
When Cinderella is in her room crying, "A Dream is A Wish Your Heart Makes" can be heard playing in the background, the song she sings at the beginning of the first Cinderella (1950) film. It also plays during the end credits.
This is the second Disney sequel in which Susanne Blakeslee has taken over the villain role. In this film and Cinderella 3: A Twist in Time (2007) she takes over the role of Lady Tremaine from Eleanor Audley and in 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure (2000) she also took over the role of Cruella De Vil from Betty Lou Gerson.
