Did you know that Cinderella is the world’s oldest and most told Fairy Tale originating from Ancient China?
At the stroke of midnight, October 2, 2012, Walt Disney Studios will open the coveted vault to release Disney’s timeless classic “Cinderella,” in the highly anticipated Blu-ray Diamond Edition Collection. This new Cinderella Diamond Edition includes enhanced images and sound too – hooray!
Little girls around the globe are adding this Cinderella Diamond Edition DVD to their birthday and holiday wish lists and I’m sure Moms, Dads, and even little brothers will be thrilled to see this masterpiece.
I saw a sneak peek of all the bonus footage on this DVD when I was on the Cinderella press junket in California last month and it was inspiring and fascinating.
Cinderella is truly what I consider to be the one of the most classic Disney films. Did you know it cost about $2.9 Million to make this film in the 1950′s but made over $85 million? Many credit the Cinderella film for saving Walt Disney Studios and enabling the company to grow and become all that it is today – include of course Disney Parks, Disney Cruise Line, and all those other movies that have become classics and such a part of our lives and our children’s lives since Cinderella.
“A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” – I love this quote from Cinderella. It just ignites that feeling of Disney Magic inside me.
Check out the trailer here:
More reasons to add the Cinderella Diamond Edition to your DVD colleciton:
- It includes the Tangled Ever After Short – my kids are CRAZY for this!
-Bonus Material Galore – including interviews and history about the real individual who was the inspiration behind the The Fairy Godmother. Fascinating!
- Second Screen Cinderella App that engages with your Blu-Ray DVD player, iPad, and the Cinderella DVD. This is a free iPad App that will sync with your Blu-Ray DVD and is incredible. You really must test this out – I promise you will be floored by the technology.
-The personalized Digital Storybook as part of the Second Screen App will even spell out your Child’s Name on the screen. Fabulous! And of course the app includes games and other fun stuff for the kids besides the follow along with the DVD fun.
Your kids will enjoy seeing one of their favorite tales brought to live on the screen.My kids BEG for movies and love seeing any of their favorite stories on TV. The story is more old fashioned than the latest Disney films but it is a total classic that will pull at their heartstrings and yours too. And everyone will enjoy this crisper enhanced rendition for sure!

Disclosure: Thanks to Disney for paying for my travel and expenses to attend the press junket for Cinderella. We also had a VIP tour of Disney’s Animation Research Library to learn about the history and making of Cinderella. We also received a free sample of the new Cinderella Diamond Edition DVD. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
