Cinderella, pt. 1: The Story

In order to satisfy my need to watch children’s movies over and over again (example, Tangled, Frozen, Anne of Green Gables, just to name a few!) I will be inserting a series here based on the movie Cinderella that came out in 2015. This story was a live-character remake based on the original Disney cartoon produced in 1950, which was itself based on the French fairy tale, “Cendrillon,” by Charles Perrault (1698). Just a tidbit from history, in case you were wondering 🙂

Everyone that I know of has heard of the fairy tale version, and even alternate versions, of this story. However I am going to delve a little deeper into the themes of Cinderella, focusing specifically on topics that still resonate with us as adults centuries later! Why is this still such a well-beloved story? Why do we always imagine our life will end in a fairy tale? What are things that we gathered as a child that we still believe ten and twenty years later?

Those are a few jewels that we will uncover in this series!
