grandma's movie review - Cinderella . . . & I'm Giving One Away!

What little girl doesn't know, and love, the story of Cinderella? This timeless tale of persistence  choosing to have a positive outlook; even when things look pretty dismal, serving others with a smile and sweet spirit, caring for those who are smaller and weaker than you and finding love . . . well, is it any wonder little girls love the story of Cinderella? For 72 years, Disney's animated version of Cinderella has been part of most little girl's childhood and now they have re-released it to Blu-ray/DVD for another generation of little girls to love! 

Cinderella 
By - Walt Disney
Rating - G

Favorite Features -

  • this classic tale has been digitally produced with high-def sound
  • classic characters - Cinderella, her animal friends, the Fairy Godmother, the prince and of course, the stepmother and stepsisters 
  • wonderful music - I love, A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes, So This is Love and of course, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo :-)
  • beautiful animation
  • I LOVED the new short, Tangled Ever After . . . it left me laughing; whoever wrote this did an amazing job of creating a truly enjoyable, delightful and funny short!
  • solid messages about not giving up, choosing to have a positive outlook; even when things do look pretty dismal, treating others kindly; even when they do not treat you kindly, serving others with a smile and a sweet spirit, caring for those whoa re smaller and weaker than you and finding love . . . all wonderful messages for us to talk with our grandchildren about!
Cinderella is a delight and is a story we can share with our grandchildren knowing they will enjoy it and knowing it gives us opportunities to talk about important messages with them. Share Ephesians 5 with your grandchildren, "Do as God does. After all, you are his dear children. Let love be your guide. So act like people of the light and make your light shine. Be good and honest and truthful, 10 as you try to please the Lord." Ask your grandchildren which characters in the movie did as Ephesians 5 tells us to do and which ones did not. Ask them what they can do this week at home and at school to "let love be their guide", so their "light shines"!
