I was provided a review copy of this dvd/blu-ray/digital. All opinions are my own!
Cinderella brought out the ultimate cynic in me, I’ll admit it, I was very skeptical that Disney could pull off one of my favorite movies of all time in a live action film. Not because I didn’t think it could be done, but because I thought they’d try too hard. My husband’s reaction to whenever our football teams get close to scoring “WHY DO THEY ALWAYS GET (EXPLICIT) CUTE IN THE RED ZONE?!?” Why do movies when remaking or reimagining a movie try to do it in a way that is so different? Makes you wonder if they ever liked the original!
Cinderella bucks those trends by telling the classic story (with a twist) of Cinderella in a way that actually breathes life into the characters in a wonderfully subtle way. When you watch this movie it stacks up to the original but distinguishes itself as not a cartoon. Wonderful actors and actresses that bring legitimacy to this film and allow the story to be told rather than having an over-the-top character distract and detract from the story.
Beauty is abound in this adaptation, a big, bright, colorful world with vivid colors and beautiful elegance. Blu-ray is the only way to experience this at home as the ornate world will jump off the screen and make you feel like you’re a guest at the ball. The beautiful Lily James delivers a wonderful performance as Cinderella!
Kids and parents will love this movie and will be drawn in by it’s beauty and signature Disney magic! Available now on DVD and Blu-Ray and if you get the Blu-Ray version you’ll get additional scenes and also some amazing behind the scenes features including an awesome feature on the animal co-stars that my kiddo loved! Buy Cinderella today, you won’t be sorry!
