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.
Here are the top 3 reasons to love the new Cinderella.
1. Lily James as Cinderella is luminous even when she isn’t in a ballgown.
And the Prince meets her well before the magical night, falling for her spirit and strength.
2. The sets and costuming are stunning.
Combined with the cinematography each scene fills the screen with lush color.
3. The repeated mantra is one we could all support.“Have courage and be kind.” While perhaps a bit overly sweet for some, it’s hard to disagree with the motherly advice escorting Cinderella through trying times.
And maybe the phrase will echo through playgrounds (replacing choruses of “let it go”).
