Cinderella: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers 

First, we would like to thank Walt Disney Studios PH for inviting us last night to the Philippine Premiere of Cinderella at SM North Edsa. The venue is jam-packed with excited kids patiently for the movie to start but while waitingm they are all treated by Ella Cruz's question and answer portion where-in the lucky ones will be able to take home special items from Walt Disney. Rachelle Ann Go who sing and star in the music video of the beloved Disney song “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes"  is also present in the event along with other child stars. 

Before Cinderella started a Short film titled "Frozen Fever" graced on to the big screen where our favorite beloved characters like Anna, Elsa and Olaf return for a quick bonus. Expect another duet between the two sisters and a ton of cuteness in this short piece.

At first, we were quite unsure what to expect in Cinderella, but with a lot of positive reviews, we became curious to see it. In this latest adaptation, Director Kenneth Branagh recaptures the magic that made this fairytale loved by all ages across the world. Even you already know the story; you'll still feel the same emotions you felt when you first read or watch Cinderella's tale. You'll hate her step mother, incredibly played by Cate Blanchett. You'll also feel the charm and magic brought to you by a very witty Helena Bonham Carter as Cinderella's Fairy Godmother.

Lily James is dazzling as Cinderella. She captures the beauty and innocence of the Disney Princess, who also is inspiring despite being maltreated in her own home. Richard Madden also did well as prince charming Kit. He has that confidence boost in his character making him a likable Prince. The two has a remarkable chemistry, especially when they had that dance in the grandeur ball. The scenery was simply astonishing and was rich in details.

Overall, Cinderella is charming and enchanting at the same time. Retelling one of Disney's classic tales is simply exceptional. It is a masterpiece that is beautifully made, colorfully adapted and delightfully reinvented.
