Hear ye, hear ye…
At the stroke of midnight on October 2nd 2012, dreams will come true as Disney releases Cinderella: Diamond Edition on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital and On-Demand viewing. The timeless and beloved masterpiece is an enchanting classic that comes alive for the very first time on Blu-ray high-definition with enhanced picture and sound. Bonus material includes “The Real Fairy Godmother” the incredible true story of Mary Alice O’Connor who was the inspiration for the character of the Fairy Godmother, “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-You” a second screen personalized digital storybook and more!
Originally released in 1950, this Disney film favorite has a fan following that spans the generations. I remember watching this beloved movie with my Aunt when she would babysit me. I remember how I felt as I saw Cinderella magically transformed by her fairy godmother. I remember the romance of the “So This is Love” ballroom scene. The magic of that moment for me lives…I experience it every time I walk into the Magic Kingdom and see that wonderful castle! So, it should come as no shock to you that I am LITERALLY counting down the days until October 2nd. I can’t wait to see this film as it is Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo-ed into Blu-ray perfection!
Like so many Disney movie lovers, I am excited to add this release to my collection! I am also excited to see the bonus materials, especially the feature on Mary Alice O’Connor called “The Real Fairy Godmother”. This amazing woman was the real deal; a real life fairy godmother, who dedicated her life to passionately serving as a volunteer, for children, families, and people, the world over. Her heart for serving has helped to keep her legacy alive. Her husband, Ken O’Connor, was a Disney animator and Imagineer during the making of Cinderella. He drew inspiration for the character from his then 30-year-old wife. It is amazing to me how much she did end up looking like his animation…I wonder if that was fate? I am in love with their story and I am so excited to see how Disney honors this real life fairy godmother!
Here is a teaser for “The Real Fairy Godmother”…
Alright, gather up your pumpkin, random farm animals, and rodents and get read for a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo…like you’ve never seen it on October 2nd. But hurry, like the fairytale, this movie is only available for a limited time! Get yours before the clock strikes midnight…I know I will!
