When I first heard that they were making Cinderella into a live action movie, I was as excited as my daughter (maybe more?). Excited more than anything because anything Disney does is GOLD especially going from cartoon to live action film. My daughter and I went and saw this while in theater and we both thought Cinderella was FANTASTIC!
Now my kids and I get to sit at home and watch it with our whole family. Even my husband surprisingly enjoyed the movie! Watching it brought back memories of watching the original cartoon movie with my mom when she introduced me to the awesomeness that was Disney and now I am so happy to be able to share this experience with my kids and give them great memories as well.
