Trivia

While approaching the project with a deep understanding of the fairy tale's history, Sir Kenneth Branagh said: "It is impossible to think of Cinderella without thinking of Disney, and the timeless images we've all grown up watching, and those classic moments are irresistible to a filmmaker."

Goofs

When Lady Tremaine sends Cinderella to the attic for the first time, the entrance to the long staircase is past the living room on the ground floor. When Cinderella exits the attic at the end of the film to meet the Prince downstairs, she descends the grand staircase from the second floor into the foyer. Unless there was another exit from the attic stairs to the second floor, she would have entered on the ground floor. See more »

Quotes

Cinderella: [to Kit] I have to leave. It's hard to explain. Lizards and pumpkins and... things.

Magical!
21 November 2016 | by cecilecanonigoSee all my reviews

This movie is just magical! The message of the movie genuinely touched my heart and spirit, it was breathtakingly gorgeous! The colors, the cinematography, the costumes just wow and love the music! The only thing i would change is i would love it more if there's singing..Lily James have a very sweet mezzo soprano voice i love her singing "A Dream is a Wish" at the end of the movie. And yes The acting was so good i cried like so many times..my fave was Prince Kit and the King's scene,Lily crying when her dress was ripped and the first dance oh god it was magic! and the gown transformation was so epic! The lead actors chemistry is so strong.. i fell in love with them. This movie is so uplifting makes me do kind deeds every time! People saying it was boring have a heart of stone for real. This is Amazing and i can't wait for Beauty and The Beast.. Well done Disney!💙😘💋
