Cinderella is getting the re-issue treatment again.
Walt Disney Studios recently announced it will re-issue its timeless animated classic Cinderella on June 25. The release is part of the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the movie’s debut. Its re-issue is part of Walt Disney Studios’ Walt Disney Signature Collection.
The story of Cinderella is an unforgettable tale of the last being first and the best coming to those who wait. Cinderella is the unloved stepdaughter of a selfish stepmother and her biological daughters. She is mistreated by the trio, but then a fair godmother comes along and helps her meet Prince Charming. He then loses her, albeit briefly, after she runs away at the stroke of midnight, and then finds her again in classic boy meets girl-loses her-gets her back in the end fashion.
Two new featurettes are featured in the movie’s upcoming BD re-issue. One is a trivia game featuring a pair of current Disney stars. The other is an in-movie feature that presents storyboards, sketches, transcripts and other items to deepen the experience.
