Today I want to share the story of this movie, because I like it. The moment it launched, I saw it and it made me feel in a fantasy world and see love in the most fantastic way; It is an excellent version of Cinderella. And honestly, if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend you see it. It is a beautiful film of love and fantasy, which particularly made me sigh while watching it.
Today I want to talk about Cinderella's story.
Cinderella is a fairy tale that has multiple versions, oral and written, ancient and modern, but I want to talk specifically about the Disney version, a live-action Cinderella movie that was released in 2015.
Cinderella is an American fantasy film released by Disney and is based on the fairy tale Cinderella by Charles Perrault. Additionally, the film is based on the 1950 animated film (which also belongs to Disney); However, Disney gave the 2015 version a twist, so there are several differences between the 1950 and 2015 versions.
The film shows the following story, the protagonist who is barely a girl and whose name is Ella lives with her father and mother on a beautiful farm in a quiet kingdom.
The family is very happy, and since she is a girl, her mother teaches her to believe in the existence of magic and fairy tales, which allows Ella to make friends with many animals on the farm, especially mice . Everything is perfect and they are very happy until their mother suddenly falls ill, but before dying she reminds Ella to always be brave and kind; and Ella promises her mother that she will always be brave and kind. And finally the mother dies.
Several years pass and Ella is already a teenager; his father married a second time to Lady Tremaine, a widowed woman, who was the wife of an acquaintance of her father.
Lady Tremaine has two daughters, Drizella and Anastasia.
Ella welcomes her stepmother and two stepsisters to her new and second family. But despite that, the stepmother and her stepsisters have an unpleasant attitude towards her. On the other hand, Ella must protect her friends, Lucifer's mice, the crazy cat from her evil stepmother.
Some time passes and Ella's father must go on a business trip. At that moment, Lady Tremaine begins to reveal her true intentions with Ella; and she manages to persuade her own stepdaughter Ella to sleep in the attic and let her two daughters, Drizella and Anastasia, keep the room that was hers.
A short time later, they receive news that Ella's father was ill during the trip and died. Desperate for money, Lady Tremaine fires the servants and forces her own stepdaughter to do all the housework (in short Ella became a maid in her own house).
One night Ella lies down in front of the fireplace so as not to freeze to death during the night. The next day, he gets up with his face covered in ashes. At that time her two evil stepsisters Drizella and Anastasia, start making fun of Ella, and give her the nickname "Cinderella" (Union of "Ash" and "Maid"). And Lady Tremaine joins together with her two daughters Drizella and Anastasia, to teasing her.
Sad about the way they made fun of her, she rushes to mount her horse and runs away into the forest; There he meets a hunter named Kit, who claims to be an apprentice who lives in the palace.
Ella does not know that Kit is actually the prince and the only son of the king. On the other hand, despite not knowing her name, Kit falls in love with Ella, is fascinated with the charm, kindness, and perspective of her.
Upon learning that he has little time to live, the King insists that his son, Prince Kit, find a girlfriend and future wife. Although Prince Kit cannot marry for love, but for the good of the kingdom with a princess, but despite that Kit cannot overcome the mysterious girl he met in the forest, and convinces his father, the king, so that all the maidens of the kingdom may attend the royal ball.
The announcement of the dance spreads throughout the kingdom; Ella's stepmother finds out, and she thinks about the idea that one of her daughters will marry the prince. And for the dance she orders 3 dresses to be made, one for her and the other two for her two daughters; since her stepmother does not send her to make any dress, Ella with the help of her mice fixes an old dress that belonged to her mother.
Ella tells the stepmother that she just wants to go to the dance to see a friend she met; but the stepmother does not want to be associated with her and her daughters; this is how she begins to tear her dress with the help of Anastasia and Drizella.
Ella is in the garden crying, and at that moment an old beggar woman appears asking for some milk, then reveals herself as her fairy godmother. The old beggar old woman uses the magic of her magic wand to reveal her true fairy godmother form.
Later he uses his magic, and turns a pumpkin into a magnificent and beautiful golden float, four mice in beautiful white horses, two lizards in lackeys and a coachman's hook.
Finally, with her magic and the help of the magic wand, the fairy godmother transforms Ella pink and ripped dress into a beautiful blue princess dress, with a delicate pair of crystal slippers. The fairy godmother sends Ella to the palace to enjoy the dance, but before she leaves, she warns her that the magic will only last until midnight, when the clock of the last chime, the magic will disappear.
Ella arrives at the precise moment when Prince Kit is going to choose a lady for the first dance; being chosen Ella, which infuriates the stepmother who has no idea that the girl in the blue dress is her stepdaughter.
After dancing, Ella and the prince walk the palace and gardens together; Kit is about to know the name of the mysterious girl he fell in love with, but just then the midnight chimes begin to sound.
Ella is forced to flee before the magic disappears; and by accident on the stairs of the palace one of his crystal slippers falls out.
Ella manages to escape before midnight and hides the other crystal shoe in her room that she will keep forever as a memory of that beautiful night.
Soon after, the king dies, but not before giving his permission to his son, Prince Kit, to find the mysterious girl at the ball, and marry her if he wants. After Prince Kit becomes king, he announces that every girl in the kingdom can try on the shoe, and thus marry the prince.
When Ella finds out about the real announcement, she runs to her room to get the other crystal shoe, but it is achieved with the bad surprise of finding her evil stepmother, Lady Tremaine, waiting for her with the crystal shoe in hand. Lady Tremaine, the evil stepmother, had deduced that her stepdaughter was the mysterious maiden of the ball.
Lady Tremaine tries to blackmail Ella, letting her marry the king in exchange for benefits for herself and her daughters; but Ella refuses, so her evil stepmother breaks the glass slipper into a thousand pieces and locks it with the key in the attic.
The Grand Duke and the captain of the guards are on a mission to test the remaining shoe on all the maidens on earth, but it does not fit any of them. When they arrive at the estate of Lady Tremaine, Cinderella's evil stepmother, the crystal shoe doesn't fit any of Cinderella's two stepsisters, Drizella and Anastasia.
The officials leave the house, since none of the maids was left, and they hear Ella sing ("Blue Lavender") through a window that the mice had opened. The Grand Duke tries to get out anyway, but one of the men reveals himself to be the King Kit in disguise and demands the captain investigate the sound. Once they find Ella, Lady Tremaine forbids her own stepdaughter to try on the crystal shoe with the false argument that she is Ella's mother, but is rejected by the captain. Ella tells Madam Tremaine that she is not, and will never call her, and that she will never be his true mother, but is actually his wicked stepmother. Ella and King Kit meet at last. The King Kit recognizes Ella even without the crystal shoe, which fits her foot perfectly later.
The Grand Duke, the stepmother and her two stepsisters are expelled from the kingdom as punishment.
Finally Ella marries Kit and becomes the new queen.
