When her father unexpectedly dies, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and her scheming stepsisters. Never one to give up hope, Ella's fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger.
When it came down to designing the blue gown for Cinderella, it took a team of twenty people and around four thousand hours to create eight versions of this special gown.
Do you still believe that they understand you?
Ella: Don't they, Mother?
Ella's Mother: Oh yes. I believe that animals listen and speak to us if we only have the ear for it. That's how we learn to look after them.
Ella: Who looks after us?
Ella's Mother: Fairy Godmothers, of course...
Ella: And ...
The fairy says that her enchantments lose their power after midnight. Indeed, when Cinderella runs away from the ball, all magic items (mice to horses, pumpkin to coach, mother's dress to fancy gown, lizards to servants) are changed back into their previous shape. There is no reason given why the magic shoes should remain in their enchanted state of glass. Though it could be argued that because she took off her old shoes and the glass shoes were created on her feet, they would not be transformed back like everything else. They were created, rather than transformed: such as the pumpkin being transformed into the carriage and the pink dress to the blue dress.
The MPAA rating screen at the end reads "PG-13," but the movie is actually rated "PG."
