March 13th, 2015 · 2 Comments · Disney, Entertainment, Movies

With “Frozen” being the smash hit that took over the world, you can bet princesses will continue their popularity with girls. Without a new twist in sight, Disney’s 2015 “Cinderella,” stays true to an old story while remaining vibrant.

2. The sets and costuming are stunning.
