Episodes & Reels is delivering our monthly Top 10 List a little differently this time around. We will post one entry in the countdown each night from Jan 23 – Feb 3 on Chip and Co until we finally reveal #1! Now, here’s our #7 animated Disney film of all-time:
#7 – CINDERELLA (1950)
Stars: Ilene Woods, James MacDonald
Directors: Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson
If you have ever purchased any kind of “Disney Princess” merchandise for your kids, then you will know all of the major players in the Disney Princess family – Aurora, Tinkerbell, Snow White, Belle and of course, Cinderella. This is another Disney project ripped from the pages of Grimm’s fairy tales from the 1800s. Cinderella may also be the most duplicated and re-imagined character from the Disney catalog, although Snow White will give her a run for her money this summer with two feature film releases (Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman). Cinderella’s story is one of the few ones that we all know. We can’t remember where we heard it for the first time, but it has always been a part of our imagination. The glass slipper, the evil stepmother and stepsisters, the pumpkin carriage, the stroke of midnight. These are storied images that remain with us for all-time. Cinderella is one of Disney’s most crowning achievements in animation cinema. It’s not a coincidence that “Cinderella’s Castle” is the featured symbol at the famed Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida – which just happens to be the most magical place on Earth, by the way.
