Night and day, it’s Cinderelly!
Make the fire, fix-a breakfast, wash the dishes, do the mopping…”
Without fail, Gus’ little voice starts singing this song every time I think about Cinderella! I love this movie, and all of the characters, which is why I am so glad to share that Disney just released the Cinderella: Diamond Edition yesterday, October 2nd.
I can never tire of watching Cinderella’s dreams come true. Who could forget the moment where The Fairy Godmother arrives to transform a pumpkin into a beautiful carriage and Cinderella’s rags into that beautiful ballgown! Or, the moment when the Prince’s eyes fall upon Cinderella for the first time!
The story is a true classic with lovable characters such as the King who cannot wait for grandchildren to dote on, Jaq, Gus the adorable mice, and those pretty little birds. And of course, those characters that we love to hate — Lucifer the horribly rude cat, Drizella and Anastasia the mean-spirited evil step-sisters, and the wicked step-mother, Lady Tremaine ((shiver)).
Seeing Cinderella’s Happily Ever After ending is such a wonderful feeling, don’t we all wish ours would end the same, no matter how corny? The Cinderella: Diamond Edition movie is better than ever now as it is beautifully presented via enhanced digital picture and sound. We truly enjoyed watching Cinderella together as a family.
DVD & Blu-ray Special Features
I have to take a second right now to tell you about what you’ll find in the special bonus features. I have not been to Walt Disney World since I was a little girl back in the mid ’80’s. But, I do remember how excited I was to visit Fantasyland and the dizzy ride on the Tea Cups! One of the special Features on the DVD is called “Behind the Magic: A New Disney Princess Fantasyland.” I have to tell you that this has me just dying to go back to Florida to visit Disney. I might be grown up now but I so want to see The Enchanted Forest, the Beauty and The Beast Castle, Ariel’s Grotto and Prince Eric’s Castle, as well as The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which will all be a part of this new area in Fall/Winter of 2012. How exciting! You must watch this special feature, it is truly amazing how the artists and construction workers can take our favorite fairy tales, and make them into reality!
The DVD also features the “Tangled Ever After animated short.” On the Blu-ray edition, you will find both of these features as well as a “Never-Before-Seen alternate opening sequence” for the Cinderella movie and “The Real Fairy Godmother”, which is the incredible true story of Mary Alice O’Conner who was the inspiration for the character of the Fairy Godmother. Also included on the Blu-ray is the personalized Digital Storybook: Bibbidi-Bobbidi-You — A Disney Second Screen Experience.
