Cinderella iii Lives Up to the WOnder of the Original

Jun 7, 2008
People are fond of referencing Cinderella, merrily joking about the magical midnight transformation of the star character from an enchanted princess into her regular self. The 1950 Disney full length cartoon was nominated for three Academy Awards and has remained a childhood favorite for nearly sixty years.

Little girls of today join their mothers and grandmothers before them in dressing up like the dazzling blond princess. In 2002 the magic continued with the DVD Cinderella II: Dreams Come True. More accurately described as a series of three stories, these tales are narrated by the mice.

Finally, in 2007 another sequel to Cinderella was released. Picking up where the original movie left off, Cinderella iii: A Twist in Time asks a question that might alarm anyone familiar with the first Cinderella-"What if the slipper didn't fit?" In this wildly twisting sequel, the evil stepsisters, Anastasia and Drizella, are suffering payback, forced to do all of Cinderella's former chores. Anastasia slips off to the woods where she comes upon the Fairy Godmother preparing a secret picnic to celebrate the first wedding anniversary of Cinderella and her prince.

As luck would have it, Anastasia contrives to pick up the dropped magic wand and return home with it. Her mother, Lady Tremaine, immediately envisions all sorts of wicked possibilities once she is convinced of the wand's real power. Her first deed is to return in time to the moment the glass slipper enters their home. She places a spell on it so that it fits Anastasia instead of Cinderella. From that point on, the movie is a a wild romp fueled by duplicity, changing identities, and intrigue. Every time you think Cinderella is going to get her prince back, Lady Tremaine foils her.

In the end, it is Anastasia, perched on the verge of taking her wedding vows, who is compelled to do the right thing. Cinderella is once again with her prince and Anastasia is rewarded with a home in the palace-and a true love of her own. With all the magic and drama of the original, this compelling sequel will find a place in the heart of every Cinderella fan.
