I usually try to watch all of the Disney sequels I can, and have certainly been disappointed a few times, but this movie is proof to me that, sometimes, they do a great job! My friend and I (who are in college and still watch our favorite Disney movies all the time) just finished watching this movie, and we both loved it. I certainly don't think that all Disney movies NEED sequels, but from time to time they can be quite enjoyable. And even though I really wanted to see it when I found out about it, I certainly didn't expect it to be great (especially not for a SECOND sequel that didn't seem at all necessary), but we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, and laughed quite a few times! I have never liked the prince in the original Cinderella; he had pretty much zero character development (understandable), and I actually thought he was a bit too girly, even for a Disney prince, but this movie has completely changed my opinion about him! He was really engaging, and funny, and even quite attractive for an animated character (as many of the other Disney princes are)! And yes, the voices were different, and the animation wasn't exactly the same, but it was still beautifully done (with amazing scenery), and Cinderella looked gorgeous in every scene! It's true that the songs weren't amazing or anything, but the story was really interesting, and I will probably watch it again before I return it, and maybe even buy it. Either way, my (future) children are definitely watching it someday... So if anyone still feels skeptical, I would say to just please at least give it a chance. If you hate it, that's certainly your right, but honestly, I don't see how you could. :-)
Also--This line had my friend and I laughing for about ten minutes. I'm not entirely sure why it's funny; it just sounded very absurdly amusing: "Hold the trumpet!"
If you see it, maybe you'll agree, or, um, think I'm crazy... :-)
