With a wicked stepmother and two jealous stepsisters who keep her imprisoned and in rags, Cinderella stands no chance of attending the royal ball. When her fairy godmother appears and magically transforms her reality into a dream come true, Cinderella enchants the handsome Prince Charming, but must face the wrath of her enraged stepmother and sisters when the spell wears off at midnight. The rich colours, sweet songs, adorable mice and lovable heroine make Cinderella a nostalgically abiding family-favourite.
