I saw Disney‘s live-action Cinderella during opening weekend back in March and adored it! The film is a brilliant adaptation of the classic fairytale that adds complexity to long-loved (and not so loved) characters. There’s magic and whimsy, heart-ache and hope, and gorgeous cinematography to boot. Plus, it was great to dive back into the world of Frozen with the Frozen Fever short film that debuted ahead of it.
Well soon we’ll be able to bring both home—Cinderella will be available on Digital HD/SD, Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA), Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and OnDemand starting September 15, 2015. In addition to the film, there are over 12 Minutes of additional scenes (including an alternate opening), plus the Frozen Fever theatrical short. Check out the details below:
Celebrate Disney’s “Cinderella,” a modern classic that shines with beauty, imagination…and magic!

Add a royal ball, a Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham Carter) and a glass slipper, and suddenly – magic becomes reality! (via Walt Disney Studios)

Disney has already shared a clip of the new alternate opening. Kenneth Branagh gives us an explanation of how production experimented with depicting more of young Ella’s life and the dynamic with her parents, but then ultimately decided to go with the pared down version that appeared in the film:
*HAPPY SIGH* So much joy! And isn’t Hayley Atwell lovely as Ella’s mother???
