As part of my adventures during my trip to D23 Expo 2015, I had the opportunity to become an Ambassador of Kindness as part of the DVD release of Disney’s Cinderella! I was counting down the days until our review copy of the Cinderella DVD arrived and I’m thrilled to say that’s finally here! And I’m loving the Cinderella bonus features almost as much as this gorgeous film!
Cinderella on DVD & Cinderella Bonus Features
I have to admit that I didn’t make it to see Disney’s Cinderella in the theaters so I was thrilled to be able to add it to our Disney DVD collection. After watching the movie (and falling in love), I also have to admit that I’m a bit of a junkie when it comes to DVD bonus features. But let me share a bit more about the film in case you didn’t make it to the theater either!
You’re probably familiar with the story but it comes to life in a new way with this film.
It’s such a classic tale and I’ve seen many versions, but there is something about the Disney version that has always held my heart. Seeing it come to live with actors and the costumes… I fell in love with it all over again.
Disney’s Cinderella has a message that is so powerful as well. It’s about kindness and how goodness can come from kindness. Even when a girl faces a life full of people who treat her unknodly, she is able to be kind and courageous. And it’s so good!
Cinderella Bonus Features
So obviously, I adored the film and we’ve watched it twice already! But one thing I love about DVD releases is bonus features! I love seeing what little goodies we will get to enjoy and the Cinderella bonus features do not disappoint!
- Frozen Fever short film: It’s Anna’s birthday, and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever – but when Elsa catches a cold, her powers may put more than just the party at risk. This is one of my favorite shorts and my kids are just getting into Frozen so they loved catching it at the beginning!
- A Fairy Tale Comes to Life: Filmmakers and cast reflect on Cinderella’s enduring power, and the joys and challenges of bringing this iconic tale to life.
- Costume Test Fun: See the work of Academy Award-winning® Costume Designer Sandy Powell (The Aviator, 2004) and share some lighthearted moments with the cast.
- Staging The Ball: You’re invited behind the scenes for the making of the Palace Ball sequence, including its spectacular set, stunning costumes, and more. This is one of my favorite scenes. The Palace Ball is just magnificent so getting a deeper look into the creation was so cool!
- Ella’s Furry Friends: Discover how the movie’s animal stars honed their memorable performances.
- Additional Scenes: Over 12 minutes of scenes not seen in the film!
- Alternate Opening: Ella’s Childhood. Check out this alternate opening that does not appear in the film!
