Trivia

While the exterior shots of the royal palace in the movie are CGI, it apparently is based on the "Zwinger" in Dresden, Germany, an eighteenth century palace complex. The Disney version is, however, greatly expanded in size. See more »

Goofs

In seeking an object to turn into a coach, the fairy godmother says she "doesn't usually work with squashes...too mushy", but she had just asked Cinderella if she had a beef tomato, which is much more delicate than a pumpkin. See more »

Quotes

Ella's Mother: Do you still believe that they understand you?
Ella: Don't they, Mother?
Ella's Mother: Oh yes. I believe that animals listen and speak to us if we only have the ear for it. That's how we learn to look after them.
Ella: Who looks after us?
Ella's Mother: Fairy Godmothers, of course...
Ella: And do you believe in them?
Ella's Mother: I believe in everything...
Ella: Then I believe in everything, too!

Disney Excels Again
1 February 2017 | by 3DSpecsSee 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.
