Cinderella's mother has passed away and her father goes on to remarry and is given another chance of love. Cinderella's new step mother and step sisters move in and in unfortunate event her father passes away.
Ella "Cinderella" is then forced to become a servant step-daughter and predictably wins the heart of a prince.
Ellie's Little Opinion: I liked the dress Cinderella wore to the ball and her wedding dress at the end. I enjoyed this version better than the cartoon version.
I also liked watching the Frozen short film at the beginning, it was like a long song. It was fun to watch the Frozen characters celebrate Anna's birthday. It was funny when Olaf tried to eat the birthday cake.
The movie does not disappoint, the costumes are beautiful especially Cinderella at the ball and the glass slippers are amazing. The step mother is very convincing as a mean mother. You really are made to feel sorry for poor Cinderella even thou she is always smiling (and wearing the same dress).
But with everything Cinderella endures she never gives up and never looses courage. This is a great message for the kids, to never give up hope!
A great family movie to see, even if we all know the story.....
