Cinderella is one of the first Disney movies I remember watching as a child. I can still remember some of the classic songs from the film. It’s hard to believe this beloved movie is celebrating it’s 70th anniversary this year. Although my whole family has seen the film we don’t own it on DVD yet. We found an old VHS cassette at a thrift store and that’s what we use to watch the movie. I’m excited about the upcoming in-home release to Blu-ray and DVD, and fans can even purchase the title on Digital HD.
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.
“Cinderella” is the ninth title to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection, which includes groundbreaking films created or inspired by the imagination and legacy of Walt Disney, featuring timeless stories and characters that have touched generations. The film takes its place alongside “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pinocchio,” “Bambi,” “The Lion King,” “Lady and the Tramp,” “Peter Pan” and “The Little Mermaid.”

To celebrate the release of the film I created this easy Cinderella Morse Code Bracelet. It’s a cute craft idea and something fun for kids to make on their own. All you need is the supplies and the morse code spelling I’ve included below.
The materials list is very short and easy. I used memory wire for my bracelet since the name is longer and on stretch cord it might be too big for a child’s wrist. Other materials include:
- 8/0 Seed Beads in Gold
- 8/0 Seed Beads in Cornflower
- Blue Bugle Beads
- 6mm Black Glass Beads
I started the bracelet with the gold seed beads and use the blue bugle beads and black beads for the letters. The cornflower seed beads were used as spacers in between each letter. You can use smaller beads in your project.
