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 include over 12 minutes of additional scenes, the “Frozen Fever” theatrical short and more!
The story of the live-action version of “Cinderella,” stays close to the original animated classic. Despite being mistreated by her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and stepsisters, a spirited Ella (Lily James) resolves to take charge of her fate. Add a royal ball, a Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham-Carter) and a glass slipper, and suddenly – magic becomes reality!
But there are some important differences that make this movie one you must add your your Disney library. We learn more about the back story of Cinderella and more about the how the relationship between the prince and Cinderella develops. Plus, I think it gives Lady Tremaine a bit more screen time to chew through, which Cate Blanchett does marvelously.
