Glass Slipper Lost Long Ago...


On this day...

Fifty-eight years ago, Walt Disney's "Cinderella" comes to theaters everywhere. It is Walt's twelfth animated feature and another layer of what we now know to be called Disney Magic. This film among others is prominently setting an image in the world's consciousness of the tie between Disney animation and classic fantasy literature.

We live in hard times for fairy-tales.
Nowdays the world is full of cynicism. It's sad that some people really believe the cynicism is a quality and be a dreamer are a fault.
For me movies like Cinderella are ESSENTIAL. It's almost the anti-Shrek (and this is a quality). I hope that the "iPod Generation" still enjoys movies like this.

Rogério,

If it's any consolation to you, my almost-three-year-old niece is madly in love with the classic Disney fairy tales...at the same time, she loves to listen to Hannah Montana on my iPod!

Hi Chris,

Yes, this is a consolation. It's very good for me to hear that. It's happy to know that this fantastic stories still are important in the kids' life. Thanks.
