If you are about to go and see Disney’s new Cinderella, be ready for the next magical ride you will never forget. The movie plays like you are reading a fairytale. Disney definitely won’t disappoint you on this movie. I love the fact that they are not afraid to touch on death and yet make you feel like you are in the fairytale while watching it. At one point you will be crying when you feel the pain and see the loyalty Cinderella has to be kind to others. Then you will be laughing when the Fairy Godmother reminds you of that last drunk lady, who stumbled at the bar. Although you know how the story ends, you fall in love with it again like you did when you were a child.
There are some great things you want to take notice while watching the movie. The costuming and makeup are great: the details from that era, the colors they use to mimic the original story, and the graphics that they use during the Fairy Godmother scenes. Disney also does a great job to mirror some of the scenes exactly to take to you back to the original cartoons. There was a scene after her mom’s dress was destroyed that she wanted to wear to the ball, that she cries at the fountain. I vividly remembered the original taking me back to my own childhood. This wasn’t the only scene that explored back to the original Cinderella, but I am not going to tell you everything. Then my favorite parts of movies are quotes!
Lets go with the one you will hear over and over again in the film. You hear Cinderella’s mom tell her, you hear her tell the Prince, you hear the prince tell the dad…and so on! “Have courage and be kind.” This message is not hidden in this film and they want you to remember it.
Cinderella Movie Quotes
The narrator does a great job and bringing some amazing lines to the movie. After all, I said the movies watches as if you are opening up a book:
Narrator: “Once upon a time there was a girl named Ella…to her mom and dad she was a princess.”
Mom: “I believe that animals hear us and understand us.”
Ella: “Who looks after us?” and Mom replies with, “The Fairy Godmother.”
Mom: “Have courage and be kind. You have more kindness in your little finger than most people have all together.”
Narrator: “Time passes and pain turns into memory.” (You also hear this a couple of times in the movie.”
King: “Punctuality in the politeness of princes.”
Cinderella: “Just because it is done doesn’t mean it should be done.” Prince repeats this line.
Step Sister: “I should trick him into loving me.”
“Where there is kindness there is goodness and where there is goodness there is magic.”
Narrator (about sisters): “Every bit as ugly within as without.”
Cinderella: “Sorry mother, I said I have courage but I don’t.”
Cinderella: “It feels like a dream. Better than a dream.”
King (flip flops like a politician): “You must not marry for advantage, but you should marry for love.” This is his last wish once he sees that his son, the Prince, is now a man.
Prince: “Are you ready?” Cinderella: “For anything as long as it is with you.”
