Movie synopsis
This sequel to Disney's classic CINDERELLA, made over 50 years after its predecessor, picks up where the original left off. Cinderella has married Prince Charming and returned to the palace, her new home, after the honeymoon when she learns that adapting to her lifestyle may be even more difficult than escaping her evil stepmother. Finding herself in the role of Royal Hostess but unfamiliar with the traditions of the Royal Court, Cinderella worries that her provincial manner of entertaining will be inappropriate. However, with the help of some familiar mice and her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella hopes that she can produce a celebration that compliments the sensibilities of her new family. Filled with new music, characters from the original film, and a brand new version of "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo," CINDERELLA II is sure to delight a new generation of both children and adults.

dreams

Usually I have no problem sitting through a Disney classic film. I suppose it’s a symptom of my rampant immaturity. I also have no problem going to see them at the theater but I suspect this in not something most people have trouble with.

Once again, though I am getting off the point in the fact that I feel Disney has lost much of its luster as of late.

Ten years ago, it seemed like the House that the Mouse built had the system down pat. It released its classic films at a carefully calculated rate and direct to video sequels were a complete no-no.

These days, it seems like they are one step away from making the animated Ernest movie. Their sequels come out far too frequently and the supposed gold classics now have sequels planned right and left.

Take CINDERELLA for example, here is a story that doesn’t need improved upon. We know how it all happened and it was a lovely story and an even better film, so why grace us with a sequel that we don’t want while still refusing to release the original film?

I know that later in the year they plan to release HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME and it’s animated sequel but at least there they are giving us the original whereas here we have just this to look forward to.

And I know that I am being unfairly harsh on it, but in truth this is nothing more than a series of animated shorts cut together into film form. It’s three episodes of some series somewhere and it ends up being just as much of a sequel as BUZZ LIGHTYEAR was to TOY STORY.

But lets be honest, even though it’s not Disney animation, it’s still a cut above the traditional direct to video animation. It’s also presented in anamorphic widescreen in a 1.78:1 frame. The detail is deep (but not as deep as a Disney classic) and that makes it a cut above.

The three stories include “Aim to Please”, “A Tall Tail” and “An Uncommon Romance” and they center more on the new characters in Cinderella’s life in the ways that they seem to be introducing a rich supporting cast.

The first story centers on Cinderella trying to fit into her new role as a Princess. It’s clever and cute but it also was a better live movie when it was done in THE PRINCESS DIARIES.

The second skit focuses on Jaq, one of the original mice who wants to be a man. He gets his wish from the fairy godmother but then he finds that his life hasn’t changed that much because the cat is still after him.

Skit number 3 features Cinderella stepsister Anastasia (and I’m wondering if there is a lawsuit there somewhere?) who falls in love with a local baker against the wishes of her wicked stepmother. Cindy steps in to help smooth the road and also help the cat get a little romance of his own.

Special features are the disc’s real saving grace because they have put together a cool little package that will interest small children. Unfortunately it leaves us immature adults bored stiff.

First up is a magical musical feature, which explains what goes into making a soundtrack and a music video. The documentary also features Brooke Allison singing “Put It Together.”

Next is a storybook about a “little Misunderstanding.” In it Cinderella must smooth over an argument between Jaq and Mary and the final features are the CGI games that have accompanied all Disney releases as of late.

The disc also features some sneak peaks of Disney’s next sequels and I have to say none of them excited me. I suppose I’ll just have to wait until BEAUTY AND THE BEAST to get a taste of that old
