Negatives: The story was too short for a movie about 2 hours long. There are some filler in this classic animation. One example is a scene with Lucifer, Jaq and Gus. Even thought it maybe entertaining, it has nothing to do with the plot. It's just a cat chasing mice.
the animators have gone back to traditional princess fare focusing on a female lead wishing for her dreams to come true
there's a lot of supporting characters this time around from the mice to Lucifer the cat to the King and the Duke
Cinderella is only in a portion of the movie but she is taught to believe by her friends and her Fairy Godmother
Lady Tremaine is a deliciously-fun villain as the evil stepmother as are the two stepsisters forcing Cinderella into a servant lifestyle
classic songs, better animation, and a clear message that isn't out of reach
one night can be like a dream and even though it cant last forever you can still make it come true yourself
another short entry but thankfully the live-action version would later explore more of the depth this version set the stage for
