Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo – Cinderella is Coming to Blu‐ray™ October 2
When I was a little girl, I absolutely loved the movie Cinderella. There is something about the story and the wonderful way Disney brings the whole thing to life that makes it speak to the optimistic dreamer in all of us. Who out there doesn’t smile when the little mice perk up over the side of Cinderella’s dresser to cheer her up? Who doesn’t feel whimsical as the pumpkin turns into a carriage and the vines into the ornate wheels? Is there anyone who wouldn’t take a magical fairy godmother for a day? Add to all this the romantic search for true love and the hottest glass slippers this side of any enchanted land and it’s no wonder everyone is anxiously awaiting Cinderella’s release from the Disney vault. The wait will soon be over with Cinderella in the highly anticipated Blu‐ray™ Diamond Edition Collection coming October 2.
Investing in the Cinderella Diamond Edition is a wish all hearts will be making. Having had a sneak peek, I can say that the graphics are truly amazing and the songs come to life even more than ever before.
What really makes this Diamond Edition DVD are the bonus features.
– Cinderella is coming to life unlike ever before with a incredible Disney Second Screen interactive experience. Cinderella’s Personalized Digital Storybook: Bibbidi-Bobbidi-You is an app for iOS devices that combines with the information of Blu-ray to create an experience of the story with levels of involvement. Mini games and feedback from the Fairy Godmother herself make this a unique experience for young movie watchers.
– Did you know the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella was real? The “Fairy Godmother of Burbank”, Mary Alice O’Connor, visually inspired the character of the Fairy Godmother. She went on to volunteer, donate, organize, and give all she could to help those who couldn’t – essentially becoming a true Fairy Godmother. Watching interviews of O’Connor’s family and friends, and understanding her commitment to the greater good honestly brings tears to my eyes. This piece of bonus material is beyond the value of any DVD.
– What did the art of Cinderella look like before it was brought to life with animation? With the Diamond Edition DVD, you’ll have access to some of those drawings. Seeing the art behind the scenes is beautiful and really gives all fans an insight to the tremendous amount of talent within each and every Disney film… especially Cinderella.
Cinderella was a huge hit for Disney when it first hit the big screen. It’s no wonder that on October 2, new fans of the beloved story will be waiting to bring home their own copy.
Cinderella is available on Blu‐ray™/DVD on October 2. Make sure you get your copy before it goes back into the Disney Vault.
