Watching Disney’s live action Cinderella was like a fun IMDB® game for me – so many familiar British actors! The kind you can kind of place but aren’t super famous enough to remember their actual names, even for me, whose brain houses all sorts of useless knowledge about movie trivia. For example, you have your Downton Abbey cast members in Cinderella (Lily James, aka Lady Rose), evil stepsister Dresilla (Sophie McShera, aka Daisy). Then you also have your Game of Thrones cast in the Prince (Robb Stark or in reality, Richard Madden) and the Captain (Nonso Anozie, a prince of Qarth). Oh and don’t forget Hayley Atwell as Cinderella’s mother (love her in Agent Carter!) and Ben Chaplin as her father (where has HE been?!)

Anyhow, I was quite proud of myself for recognizing everyone. Then of course there are all the powerhouse ACTORS, such as Cate Blanchett as the Stepmother, Helena Bonham-Carter as fairy godmother, Derek Jacobi as the King, and Stellan Skarsgård as the Duke. Quite impressive that Disney got all these serious actors to do a fairy tale and Kenneth Branagh to direct it (though I guess he’s forgone his Shakespearean films of late for big blockers...

I didn’t think I would get to go to the ball.
My stepsisters ripped up my dress after all.
Then out of nowhere my Fairy Godmother appeared.
And she told me not to fear.
She said she would take care of everything.
Then she took out her magic wand, and started to swing.
She made me a beautiful carriage out of a pumpkin!
She looked at me and began to grin.
She transformed my rags into the most beautiful dress I’ve ever seen.
It was so pretty I could’ve passed as a Queen!
I even had shoes made out of glass.
I was ready to go, at last!
She told me it would only last until midnight,
And I told her that was alright.
At the ball I found my very own Prince,
I can’t stop thinking of him since!
We danced around in each others arms,
For once in my life I didn’t feel as if I were in any harm.
The clock started to chime at my dismay,
I had to go! I had to get away!
The spell would soon be broken,

The earliest version of the story of Cinderella originated in China around A.D. 860. It appeared in Miscellaneous Morsels from Youyang by Tuan Ch'eng-Shih, a book which dates from the Tang Dynasty.

The best-known versions were written by French author Charles Perrault in 1697, based on a common folk tale earlier recorded by Giambattista Basile as La Gatta Cenerentola in 1634, and the Brothers Grimm in the early 1800s.

Cinderella is the twelfth animated feature in the Disney animated features canon. It was released to theaters on February 15, 1950.

Made on the cusp between the classic "golden age" of Disney animation of the 1930s and 1940s and the less critically acclaimed productions of the 1950s, Cinderella is representative of both eras.

It was the first full-bodied feature produced by the studio since Bambi in 1942; World War II and low box office returns had forced Walt Disney to produce a series of inexpensive package films such as Make Mine Music and Fun and Fancy Free for the duration of the 1940s.
