Cinderella is a classic fairytale with a happy ending. The original Disney film is based on the fairy tale "Cendrillon" by Charles Perrault and was one of the most successful of the studio’s films. Release more than 60 years ago the film is still one of the most popular of the Disney Princess series.

As with any Disney movie, this one also has great songs. Arguably the best known is "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo." Right behind it is "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes”. Disney helps the story along with the addition of a few animal friends for Cinderella these include Jaq and Gus who are mice and the evil cat Lucifer that all live. The step mother is chillingly wicked despite having no super powers.

Like Snow White, Cinderella has a wicked step mother, along with two spoiled step sisters, who force her to be a servant in her own home. When the King announces a ball at which the Prince will pick a wife Cinderella wants to go and is told she can if she finishes all her chores and can find a suitable gown.  However, the step mother gives Cinderella a huge amount of work and destroys the dress she has made.
