My childhood Disney favorite is Cinderella. I remember when I was a kid and I watched it at my grandparent’s best friends house. You see he was a doctor and made a lot of money and bought movies just because he could buy movies. I picked out Cinderella and loved it. I loved it so much that he bought me a copy. That was the time of VHS and I remember thinking, I’m keeping this forever and taking it with me when I graduate and I’m going to share it with my own kids. Well, times changed and I haven’t owned a VHS player since I married my husband.
I still wanted Zoe to see Cinderella so I got the DVD when it came out and shared it with her then. Now not too much later we’ve moved from DVD to the world of High Definition on Blu-ray. The colors are spectacular and the extras are fun too.
In celebration of the limited time release of Cinderella: Diamond Edition, Disney has released select story sketches and concept art from this beloved classic from the Animation Research Library!
In addition to early sketches of the glass slipper and Fairy Godmother, the studio has released historic photographs from the live action reference film shot for Cinderella that combines live action with hand drawn art. The film was printed in small story sketch size and used to help guide the design and layout of the film. In 1950, this was an experimental technique that the team was using for this film to help integrate the live action reference footage into the animation and thereby help the project stay within budget. Helene Stanley, the actress featured in these photographs also served as a model for "Sleeping Beauty" and "101 Dalmatians."
