Since I have to leave for a while, I figured I would go ahead and publish what I have written so far for my Cinderella Countdown. When I come back, I will finish it!
20. The Glass Slipper- The King demands that the Grand Duke find Cinderella
You'll try this on every maid in my kingdom. And, if the shoe fits... Bring her in.
The King is absolutely furious when he finds out that the "Mystery Girl" ran away. He calmed down once he found out about the glass slipper she left behind, and instucted the Grand Duke to try it on every girl in the Kingdom.
"Well, I love everything about the movie, so it's hard to choose." - ppv
"This scene was always funny to me, with the King & Duke jumping up and down on the bed." - DreamyGal
19. Jaq & Gus battle Lucifer
Lucify. That's him. Meany, sneaky. Jump at you. Bite at you!
In order to help in the making of Cinderella's dress, Gus and Jaq set off to find materials. Only one thing stands in their way; Lucifer! he tries his best to keep those two from getting what they need. But, of course, they get what they need and are able to escape him! Take that you damn cat! Sadly, no one commented about this one.
18. Lucifer traps Gus
Lucifer traps poor little Gus under a teacup. He thought he had won, that is until Cinderella took the trays upstairs. After Cinderella delivers Anastasia's tray, we hear her shriek. Gus had been under her cup. Oops!
17. The great escape- Cinderella's friends come to the rescue
Us a comin' Cinderelly! Us a comin!
Lady Tremaine locks Cinderella in her bedroom because she knows that she is the girl the Prince is searching for. But, Cinderella has some very loyal friends, and they come to her rescue. Jaq and Gus get the key out of Lady Tremaine's pocket, and carry it allllll the way upstairs! Just when you thought they were home free, the cat that everyone loves to hate, Lucifer shows up. Bruno ends up kicking his ass though, and he falls out a window. Serves him right if you ask me...besides; cats always land on their feet, right?
"CLIMB FASTER DAMMIT! This one just isn't as funny or magical as the other ones. It was more of me biting my nails and wishing they would move their mousy-butts faster." - Duncan_Courtney
16. Just the right touch- Cinderella's dress is ruined
Girls, girls. That's quite enough. Hurry along, now, both of you. I won't have you upsetting yourselves
Cinderella is so excited that she is now able to attend the Ball...her family, however, are not that thrilled. Lady Tremaine makes a few comments, and her evil daughters realize Cinderella's dress has been made by their scraps, and they angily rip her dress to shreads, breaking Cinderella's heart in the process.
"It was horrible it wanted to punch those bitches!" - deathchick9
"So devastating!" - kenzieiscool
15. Cinderella is punished- for the Gus incident
Silence! Time for vicious practical jokes. Perhaps we can put it to better use. Now, let me see... There's the large carpet in the main hall- Clean it! And the windows upstairs and down- Wash them! Oh yes, and the tapestries and the draperies...
After Anastasia finds Gus under her teacup, Lady Tremaine asks Cinderella to come into her room. She is cruel to Cinderella, and adds on a bunch of chores to her already busy schedule. She doesn't even give Cinderella a chance to defend herself.
"Kind of boring, it also makes me sad." - madisonsavanna
14. The King wants a ball- he wants Charming to find a wife
My son has been avoiding his responsibilities long enough. It's high time he married and settled down.
The King is highly impatient. He wants his son to settle down ASAP so he can have grandchildren (sounds a lot like my Mom!). He tells the Duke to arrange a Ball, inviting all of the elible women, in hopes that Charming will meet his future Bride.
"it's..............nothing." - princesslullaby
"The King makes me laugh in this scene...he's so desperate to have grandkids and is willing to do anything." - DreamyGal
13. Breakfast Time- Cinderella gets breakfast ready for her family and the animals
I'm coming! I'm coming!
Cinderella's busy day starts at dawn. She wakes up, and goes downstairs to prepare breakfast for her hideous stepfamily and her dear little animal friends. She remains calm even when they start ringing their bells demanding that she hurry.
"Kinda bland." - madisonsavanna
"I love the breakfast scene! It's one of my favorites. It always has been." - FullMoonFever
12. Locked up- Cinderella is trapped
Oh please let me out!
After discovering who her "mystery" date was, Cinderella is in a state of shock. She starts humming their love song, and goes up to her room to freshen up. Lady Tremaine recognizes the tune, and figures out that Cinderealla is the girl the Prince is searching for. In a mean attempt to shatter Cinderella's future of happiness, she locks her in her bedroom, putting the key in her pocket.
"I love the trapped scene too because of all the emotional tension and suspense. It's very exciting!" - Straggy
"Ugh, That Scene Was The One I Couldn't Stand!"- soxfan89
11. "The Work Song"- the mice make a dress for Cinderella
We can do it, we can do it, we can help our Cinderelly!
Cinderella is so excited when her Stepmother tells her she can go to the Ball. Of course her evil family keep her busy so she won't have time to fix her dress and get ready. Luckily, her sweet animal friends come to her rescue and fix her dress for her.
"Cute, but not as captivating as the other scenes." - AllegroGiocoso
"Annoying little voices singing away." - BKG201
10. The Prince- Cinderella finds out who her mystery man is
The morning after the ball, Lady Tremaine orders Cinderella to bring the breakfast trays up to the bedrooms. As she enters the room, she overhears her Stepmother talking about the Prince and how he won't give up the search for his mystery girl. Cinderella is so shocked that it was indeed the Prince whom she spent the entire evening with, she drops the trays, making her Stepmother furious.
"I think it's a little anti-climactic because the audience already knows who the prince is." - SailorM91
"As I've said before: this scene is weird..." - FullMoonFever
9. I'll make it fit- the ugly stepsisters fight over the slipper
There. I knew it was my slipper. Exactly my size. I always wear the same size. As soon as I saw it, I said...
The Grand Duke arrives to try the slipper on every maiden in the house...little does he know what he's getting into with Drizella and Anastasia. They whine and gripe about how the show must've shrunk as they try to fit their huge ass feet into the petite glass slipper. They get on my nerves, but they do add a bit of comedy relief.
"Funny, but not crucial." - princesslullaby
"This scene would have been better if they DID cut there toes off like in the book." - deathchick9
8. Wedding Day- And they lived happily ever after
And they lived happily ever after!
Wedding bells ring throughout the Kingdom as Cinderella and her Prince run down the stairs and climb into their carriage. As they ride off towards their happily ever after, they share a very sweet kiss.
"I love the way her story ends. It's the happy ending that she totally deserves." - DreamyGal
"Too short." - madisonsavanna
7. Happy Birthday!- Cinderella is surprised with a new dress
Cinderella is pretty much devastated that she can't go to the Ball. Her awful family kept her so busy, that she had no time to make her dress. She walks up to her room and gazes out at the castle, heartbroken that she won't be attending...then her sweet little friends surprise her with her Mothers dress; that they fixed up for her.
6. "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes"- Cinderella's friends help her wake up.
A dream is a wish you heart makes, when you're fast asleep...
This is the scene where we first meet Cinderella. She wakes up in a pleasant mood because of a dream she had; only she won't say what it was about, afraid it wouldn't come true if she did. She begins to sing my personal favorite Princess song, "A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes", and her animal friends help her get dressed.
"Sort of dull." - princesslullaby
