Last March, hubby and I convinced Grandma to take the kids for the evening, and we went out for a well-deserved dinner and a movie date. I convinced hubby to go see Cinderella with me, and we both had a wonderful night out. I’m excited that this classic fairy tale is now available on Digital HD, Blu-ray, and Disney Movies Anywhere!
I don’t think I need to recap the story – we all know this fairy tale classic with the beautiful and kind Cinderella, her wicked stepmother and stepsisters, and her Fairy Godmother. With a pumpkin, a few mice, and some bibbidi bobbidi boo, Cinderella is transformed into the mysterious princess in a stunning dress who will enchant Prince Charming at the ball.
My girls are captivated by Cinderella, though my oldest did have some questions about why Cinderella’s parents died and why her stepmother is so mean to her.
We’ve only had this movie for a couple of days, and my girls have already watched it twice. And don’t even get me started on Frozen Fever! They’ve watched that seven-minute short film at least eight times! It helps fill the gap while we wait for Frozen 2.
