Cinderella was Walt Disney's return to feature-length "story" cartoons after eight years of turning out episodic pastiches like Make Mine Music and Three Caballeros. A few understandable liberties are taken with the original Charles Perrault fairy tale (the wicked stepsisters, for example, do not have their eyes pecked out by crows!) Otherwise, the story remains the same: Cinderella, treated as a slavey by her selfish stepfamily, dreams of going to the Prince's ball. She gets her wish courtesy of her Fairy Godmother, who does the pumpkin-into-coach bit, then delivers the requisite "be home by midnight" warning. Thoroughly enchanting the prince at the ball, our heroine hightails it at midnight, leaving a glass slipper behind. The Disney people do a terrific job building up suspense before the inevitable final romantic clinch. Not as momentous an animated achievement as, say, Snow White or Fantasia, Cinderella is a nonetheless delightful feature, enhanced immeasurably by the introduction of several "funny animal" characters (a Disney tradition that has held fast into the 1990s, as witness Pocahontas), and a host of a sprightly songs, including "Cinderelly," "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes," and -- best of all -- "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo."~Hal Erickson

The advertising was very deception on this. I didn't think anyone was even making full screen anymore but that should have been more prominent in the description. Even on the packaging you practically have to use a microscope to find the format. I'll be returning.
I really wanted the 4K edition for this movie but of course it was sold out so I got lucky getting the last blu Ray edition for my birthday last year for this movie the blu Ray one was better then not getting it at all. This was a movie I definitely needed in my Disney collection movie it looks so good I love this movie so much. Love how the cover is too.
My terminally ill sister wanted to see Cinderella. I looked up where I could find i, and Best Buy to the rescue! It was the exact movie that she wanted to watch. We had a wonderful time holding hands watching the movie and eating popcorn like we did when we were younger. Great memories!
