What Its About:
Cinderella II: Dreams Come True
As a newly crowned princess, Cinderella quickly learns that life at the Palace and her royal responsibilities are more challenging than she had imagined. There are three heartwarming tales that focus on life after Cinderella marries the prince. In the first tale, Cinderella’s new role as princess involves her planning a large banquet and making some changes in the way things are done at the palace. The second tale has Jaq feeling small and wishing he were bigger. The Fairy Godmother turns him into a human for awhile, and he learns to be happy with who he is as a mouse. In the third tale, Cinderella’s stepsister Anastasia falls in love with a common baker and her family is not too happy about it. Cinderella finds out and encourages the match.
Cinderella III: A Twist in Time
Princess Cinderella is living a charmingly perfect life until her stepmother gets her hands on Fairy Godmother’s magic wand. With a wicked spell that turns back the clock, she erases the Prince’s memories of the girl he met at the ball and shatters Cinderella’s happily ever after! Jaq and Gus scurry to save the day before time runs out. But was it all really just a dream in Cinderella’s heart, or will true love triumph over all?
This was our first time watching Cinderella 2 and 3, the sequels to the Disney classic favorite, and they didn’t disappoint! Cinderella 2 is less like a full-length movie and more like a series of three shorter episodes, not all of them starring our favorite princess, but we still enjoyed it immensely. It was fun to see a softer side to one of the previously mean stepsisters (Anastasia), to revisit the mice (Jaq and Gus), and to see how Cinderella is faring in her new role as princess. Cinderella 3 is an actual full-length movie (well, a little over an hour) in which we find out what would have happened if somehow the glass slipper had been tampered with so that it fit one of Cinderella’s stepsisters rather than Cinderella. Will Cinderella lose her chance to be with the one she loves?
