| Film Synopsis |

Recently added to the prestigious National Film Registry, the animated classic centers on kind and hardworking Cinderella, who is ordered around by her cruel stepmother, her awful stepsisters — even the big clock in the church tower tells her when to start another day of drudgery. But they can’t stop her from dreaming, and Cinderella has faith that someday her wishes will come true. 

| Video |

With the celebration of its almost 70th anniversary, it returns from the Disney Vault as part of the Walt Disney Signature Collection. Cinderella arrives with a stunning 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video transfer free of encoding imperfections.  Lush greens and inky blacks come together to embrace a truly enchanting image, full of life and color. 

| Audio |

Cinderella provides a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track and a single-channel DTS-HD Master Audio presentation of the film's original mono mix.  Dialogue is clean, clear and perfectly restored.  Score fills the rear channels, but dialogue and sound effects remain in the center channel.

| Special Features |
  • Try This Trivia On For Size: Ruth Righi and Ava Koelker from the Disney Channel show Sydney to the Max offer fans some interesting trivia from the movie: Cinderella's shoe size, how often her shoe gets lost, the location of the hidden Mickey in the film, Walt Disney's favorite scene from the film, and which actors appeared in other films. Additionally, they bring up a few trivia questions the audience can answer while watching the movie.

  • Audio Commentary: Not so much a traditional track recorded in retrospective but rather one billed as "In Walt's Words: The Envisioning of Cinderella." This is a "recreated" commentary, presented with picture-in-picture imagery which reveals storyboards, artwork, and photos alongside the film (sometimes the film plays full screen, sometimes it is relegated to the smaller box while the storyboards, artwork, etc. take center-stage). The audio component offers a dramatic recreation of Walt Disney's 1946-1949 production meetings with the filmmaking team, covering the story, animation, live-action reference photography, and more, all recreated from transcripts found in the Disney archives. This supplement can be found under the "Play" menu screen option.

| Overall Reaction |

Disney's Cinderella ushered in a second golden age of Disney animation in the 50's.  It’s an animated classic that essentially saved the studio from becoming no more.  Picture is amazing and sound is good from the source it came from.  I would recommend this film into anyone's home.  Pure classic.
