In honor of its upcoming 70th anniversary, the timeless animated classic “Cinderella” waltzes into the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection and the hearts of a whole new generation. The enchanting tale, which showed us that dreams really do come true — and inspired countless fans to reenact the Royal Ball and Cinderella’s infamous midnight dash — arrived home Digitally in HD and Movies Anywhere on June 18, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD on June 25. A great activity to inspire imagination is designing Cinderella’s ballgown with this worksheet:
To celebrate this magical moment, we were sent a midnight magic box that contained everything my daughter and I needed for a midnight screening of the film. In it was a silk robe, plush socks, incredibly soft blanket, buttered popcorn, Mini chocolate chip cookies, Tea, a Cinderella mug and the new Blu-ray combo pack of Cinderella!
The Anniversary Edition of “Cinderella” offers two all-new extras: “Cinderella” trivia and fun facts, hosted by Ruth Righi and Ava Kolker from Disney Channel’s “Sydney to the Max,” and “In Walt’s Words: Enhanced Edition,” a special edition of “Cinderella” featuring fascinating production details, original storyboards, archival photos, thumbnail sketches and transcripts throughout the feature film. Hours of classic bonus material celebrates the masterful animation, memorable music and long-lasting impact of “Cinderella,” showcasing Walt Disney’s core group of animators, the art of Disney Legend Mary Blair, the original demo recording of the film’s title song and Cinderella’s iconic glass slipper.
I’ll always be a fan of this timeless classic and am happy to watch it with my own daughter. Maybe I’ll set out Gus Gus’ fine selection of cheeses for when we have our friends join us to watch the film… Did you grab your copy?
