Cinderella Movie Review

Cinderella Movie Review

Growing up with the “classic” version of Cinderella when the new one hit the theater I was a little more than skeptic about watching it. We all know I LOVE Disney movies and that Walt Disney himself was a perfectionist to say the least. But once again Disney has out done themselves with another movie that will be loved for generations to come because of it’s updated story line. One of my biggest concerns was that the story would be lost in transition, but rest assured the parts that were left out didn’t affect the movie at all! I don’t want to ruin the movie for you, but this one will make everyone believe in their own happily ever after for years to come!

Disney’s beloved and empowering fairytale told in a new beautiful way, Cinderella, arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere September 15th! The bonus features includes over 12 minutes of additional scenes, the “ Frozen Fever” theatrical short and more!
