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 movie marks Sir Kenneth Branagh's first collaboration with Walt Disney Pictures. Branagh also directed Thor (2011), which was distributed by Paramount Pictures, but was subsequently re-branded as a Disney movie. See more »
When Ella's father leaves on his last business trip, the pair of horses at the carriage he leaves in has no white on their legs. As the carriage pulls into the road (and the camera pans back to Ella), the horses each have four white legs (and are probably the same pair of bay hackney horses that bring Ella's father home in the opening scenes; each horse has a wide blaze on its face and four white stockings). This same pair of very distinctive horses also appear briefly at the beginning of the king's ball, when everyone is arriving. See more »
But... All the ladies in the land are invited. By order of the king.
It is "the king" I'm thinking of. It would be an insult to the royal personage to take you to the palace dressed in these old rags.
Rags? This was my mother's.
[Tremaine inches closer to Ella]
Oh... Sorry to have to tell you, but your mother's taste was questionable. This "thing" is so old-fashioned, it's practically falling to pieces.
[Tremaine tugs harshly the sleeve of Ella's dress causing the sleeve to rip completely]

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!💙😘💋
