Trivia

Helena Bonham Carter (Fairy Godmother) also played the Red Queen in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland (2010). Verna Felton, the original voice actress of the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella (1950) also provided the voice of the Queen of Hearts in Disney's Alice in Wonderland (1951) (Tim Burton's movie is not really a remake of the 1951 movie though).

Goofs

When Ella's father leaves on his last business trip, the pair of horses at the carriage he leaves in has no white on their legs. As the carriage pulls into the road (and the camera pans back to Ella), the horses each have four white legs (and are probably the same pair of bay hackney horses that bring Ella's father home in the opening scenes; each horse has a wide blaze on its face and four white stockings). This same pair of very distinctive horses also appear briefly at the beginning of the king's ball, when everyone is arriving. See more »

Quotes

Cinderella: Fairy godmother?
Fairy Godmother: Yes, what?
Cinderella: My dress. I can't go in this dress. Can you mend it?
Fairy Godmother: Mend it? No-no, I'll turn it into something new.
Cinderella: Oh on , please, don't. This was my mother's, and... and I'd like to wear it when I go to the palace. It's almost like - taking her with me.
Fairy Godmother: I understand. But I don't think she'd mind if I - gee it up a bit? Wouldn't mind a nice blue?
Cinderella: [whispering] No.
[Using her magic wand, the Fairy Godmother turns Cinderella's torn pink dress into a dazzling blue ballgown]

I can't believe these horrible reviews!!
13 June 2015 | by diavolo_gunaikaSee all my reviews

I felt the story of Cinderella was was beautifully done. The acting was just as it should be for a fairy tale. The colours and the magic vibrant. The actors and actresses played their parts wonderfully.

Taking a story and making it into a movie most times is difficult. How we have interpreted the story can be very different from what the director envisioned.

As a lover of all fairy tales I enjoyed the movie. I believe all little girls and even grown ups like me can appreciate how well they did with the movie.

All in all it was well done.
