Trivia

Though this version of Cinderella is not based on the Grimm's telling, the stepsisters have a brief argument where Drizella threatens to scratch Anastasia's eyes out which echos the Grimm's version where the stepsisters have their eyes pecked out by birds. See more »

Goofs

When the pumpkin starts to grow inside the greenhouse Cinderella and the fairy godmother are pushed against the glass while they're scooting together; however when they leave the greenhouse, they exit from opposite sides of the door, meaning one of them would have had to scoot around the greenhouse's circumference to exit.

Quotes

Grand Duke: I'm sure your father spoke to you about your behavior in the forest.
Prince Charming: Is that any business of yours, Grand Duke?
Grand Duke: Your business is my business, Your Royal Highness. It would not do to let the stag go free.
Prince Charming: Just because it's what's done, doesn't mean it's what's should be done. Or something like that.

Disney Excels Again
1 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

My disappointment was hearing that critics had found fault with this work of perfection.

The characterisation has been thought through carefully and the temptation to make caricatures of the step-mother and her daughters consciously resisted.

The retelling of "Cinderella" (apparently known, in the 19th century, as "Cinderslut") with the benefits of modern techniques and processes is impeccable.

Often, films that are 'great works' suffer from some minor weakness or other, a detail not followed through, a hasty bit of editing, a clipped or overly long scene but never did I feel that could be said about Disney's film. "TLC" (tender loving care") from beginning to end.

True to Walt's original intentions, here is a film for all the family (well, some teenagers may want to wait a little).

Good luck, it's great to see memorable films making it to our screens.
