Beautiful portrayal
12 December 2019 | by jml1988See all my reviews

This was well casted and I loved the visual effects of it. The infamous transformation was perfection. I wished there was more Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham Carter) as she was expectedly fabulous, but her part was disappointingly short.
