Film Title: 
Length:   1h 28min
Released:   1997
Genre:  Family, Fantasy, Romance, Musical
Rating: G
Where I Got It: Disney+


Although mistreated by her cruel stepmother and stepsisters, Cinderella is able to attend the royal ball through the help of a fairy godmother.


This was one of my ultimate favorite movies in my youth. I had such a crush on the prince ;) I jumped for joy when Disney+ announced it was going to be streaming this movie!

A reimagination of the classic story of Cinderella. She is mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters, but she wants to love and be loved. When the royals decide to host a royal ball for all, she asks to go, but her stepmother says heck no. With the help of a fairy godmother, Cinderella will get her wish granted! One the other side, the Prince is being forced to find a wife, but he wants true love. Will he find the love of his life at the ball he is being forced to host?

This was still just as good as I remembered. Yesss the effects are cheesy now ;) but it was charming. 

The music was fun and no wonder why as an adult I still remember the songs in and out. They are catchy and cute especially the stepsisters song. What a hott!

I would love a sequel. I know...I know...leave well enough alone, but it would be so much fun to see Cinderella and her prince 20 years later. Maybe their kid can be another famous Disney prince/princess. How fun would that be????? One can dream! One can hope! Sighsssssssss.

But yesss this will remain a childhood favorite and now that it is streaming I'll have to watch it a few times before it disappears. Love the cast! Love the songs! Love the story! For sure a classic! I recommend it for all ages! 5 stars (of course).
