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.
This version of the movie shares several similarities with the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical of the same name, which was televised as Cinderella (1957). They include the plot of the advisor working with Lady Tremaine, the fairy godmother's use of the phrase "fiddle faddle", and Cinderella's decision to forgive her stepmother. See more »
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 »

Love this film! no it is not like the original but it is great in it's own way! The prince is more developed as a character, the step-mother is still great, and Cinderella is great too. I think this Cinderella is more quiet and with that a quiet beauty and strength comes through her and it really shines. I love this movie and I will always love to watch this one and the original one.
