Trivia

The second footman in the transformation sequence and running away from the guards after the ball never shows his face. See more »

Goofs

The shot of Cinderella getting out of her carriage after arriving at the ball shows the carriage wheels to be metal. If the setting is set during the early part of the Victorian Era, then the wheels should have been wooden, since the metal wheel was not invented until 1870. See more »

Quotes

Princess Chelina of Zaragosa: You're as handsome as your picture, and your little kingdom is charming.
Prince Charming: I hope you don't find our kingdom too confining.

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!💙😘💋
