Is there any fairy tale that has captured the popular imagination more than Cinderella? We all like a good “Cinderella Story”–someone who beats the odds and builds a better life. There are Cinderella tales in almost every culture and time.
The adults had forgotten just how charming and funny the movie is. Of course, we all remember the fairy godmother, with her Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo and the magical coach. We had forgotten how big a part Gus Gus and his mice friends play in Cinderella’s adventure.
Some adults may focus on the “happily ever after” fairy tale, but I see a young woman who works hard, believes in herself, and is loyal to her friends. She dreams big and her fairy godmother comes through with a little bit of magic.
The colors are vivid and the images are sharp. Plus, there is bonus material: “The Real Fairy Godmother” the incredible true story of Mary Alice O’Conner who was the inspiration for the character of the Fairy Godmother, “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-You” a second screen personalized digital storybook, and more–making this DVD a must-have for Disney lovers.
And the fun doesn’t stop once the movie is over. You can find recipes, crafts, puzzles, and more at Disney!
