Cinderella is not a remake, but inspired by the fairy tale by Walt Disney and it borrows many elements of the same animated movie from the 1950’s, with the music. Also it’s a live action adventure. Remember, it is not an animated movie. The animated movie was 75 minutes long, this one two hours. This will keep the young children awake for two hours or be confused. More or else the adults too. More confused, because they did not know what they were watching, totally confused.
It’s the same plot, but it has plot twist to make it more interesting and probably suspense too. We all know what happens at the end. Don’t spoil it. In this version, Cinderella and the Prince meet prior to the fateful ball. At the time, he tells her he is a palace employee named Kit. He was an apprentice for the king and a hunter. Wave a magic wand at him and make him a prince.
The Fairy Godmother is a larger character than in previous versions, as she is initially disguised as an old beggar who watches over Cinderella before ultimately revealing herself as a magical being.
