Inspire Kindness and Goodness with New Cinderella Movie
When I learned about the new Cinderella live action movie I was excited. Excited because they were bringing her to life, excited because of my childhood memories and excited about the possibilities of promoting it on my blog. I followed my blogger buddies on the red carpet premiere via Twitter and stalked their tweets for updates during the interviews. Early this summer I took my daughter to see the movie and it was more that I could have ever imagined. Now movie lovers all over the world get to own the magic that is Cinderella.
Cinderella arrived on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on September 15th. We received a review copy from Disney Home Entertainment. My daughter couldn’t have been more thrilled to get a copy she could own. We both really enjoyed the movie when it was in theaters, so much so that she requested to be Cinderella for Halloween this year.
Blogging has afforded me so many great opportunities including a chance to see the actual carriage from the movie. I got to see it briefly when I visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios in April of this year.
This is one of the most beautiful movies I’ve seen all year. Mostly because it’s so inspirational and inspiring. It embodies the values of kindness and what it means to be good. Cinderella was already a great animated feature but this version just added more magic to this beautiful tale. I love all the positive messages it sends and I’m glad my daughter has it for her collection. I highly recommend adding this movie to your holiday gifts this year. It’s a great family movie that both girls and boys will enjoy. Check out clips, activities, slideshows and more from Cinderella below, plus find out more about the in home release.
