Cinderella is a timeless classic that has always been one of my all-time favorites over the years! This year, Cinderella waltzes in the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection and the hearts of a whole new generation with the all-new anniversary edition. Now available on digital and Blu-ray, you can revisit this enchanting tale with its unforgettable characters! The Cinderella Anniversary Edition offers two all-new extras. Hours of classic bonus material celebrates this anniversary edition. It features memorable music, the art of Disney’s legend Mary Blair, and the original demo recording of the title song of the film.
Cinderella lives in unfortunate circumstances after losing both of her parents at a young age. Her stepmother (Lady Tremaine) and stepsisters (Drizella and Anastasia) force her work in her own chateau as a scullery maid. In spite of all of this, Cinderella’s situation doesn’t deter her from being kind and hardworking. It also doesn’t stop her from dreaming that her situation will change for the better one day. Cinderella believes that her time has come when an invitation to the royal ball arrives.
Cinderella discovers a gown that once belonged to her mother and chooses to redesign it for the ball. She completes it with a necklace and a sash that was discarded by her stepsisters. Her dreams of going to the ball are quickly shattered when her stepsisters tear her dress to shreds. Just as Cinderella believes that everything is lost, her Fairy Godmother appears! With a wave of her wand and “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” her fairy Godmother transforms an ordinary pumpkin into a magnificent coach and Cinderella’s rags into a beautiful gown. She then proceeds to send Cinderella off to the Royal Ball. In her beautiful dress and glass slippers, Cinderella catches Prince Charming’s heart. Her enchanting evening comes to a screeching halt when the spell is broken at the stroke of midnight. It will take the assistance of her fearless mice friends and a perfect fit into a glass slipper to create the ultimate fairy tale ending!

I had no idea that Cinderella celebrated their 70th anniversary. I remember watching the movie when I was little and that says enough since I’m in my 40s now.
