When her father unexpectedly dies, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and her scheming stepsisters. Never one to give up hope, Ella's fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger.
A girl named Ella (Cinderella) has the purest heart living in a cruel world filled with evil stepsisters and an evil stepmother out to ruin Ella's life. Ella becomes one with her pure heart when she meets the Prince and dances her way to a better life with glass shoes, and a little help from her fairy godmother, of course.
The fairy godmother says that her enchantments lose their power after midnight. Indeed, when Cinderella runs away from the ball, all magic items (mice to horses, pumpkin to coach, mother's dress to fancy gown, lizards to servants) are changed back into their previous shape. There is no reason given why the magic shoes should remain in their enchanted state of glass. Though it could be argued that because she took off her old shoes and the glass shoes were created on her feet, they would not be transformed back like everything else. They were created, rather than transformed: such as the pumpkin being transformed into the carriage and the pink dress to the blue dress. See more »

You don't suppose she has a sister, do you?
I don't know. I don't know anything about her.
Perhaps your mystery girl may come to the ball. That is why you threw the doors open, is it not?
Captain. It was for the benefit of the people.
