This adaptation is the one with the evil-step mother who forbids her to go to the Royal Ball and with the jealous stepsisters who want to ruin Cinderella’s life. This Disney movie was directed be Clyde Geronimi and was released on March 4th, 1950.

The general moral of this Cinderella movie is that if you are a good person, your dreams will come true. Good things come to good people. She constantly serves her evil stepfamily without complaining. In the end, she over comes all the negativity she is surrounded by and wins the heart of her Prince Charming.

Disney took Cinderella and created a version that young children would enjoy. The message communicated in this message is to strive for what you want, don’t let people get in your way. The fairy Godmother is Cinderella’s angel, she is there to help her through the hard times.

As time goes by, fairy tales evolve while some stay the same from generation from generation. But what affects the viewers is the message that is being communicated.
