North American Premiere of the 4K restoration!

Walt Disney spent more than a decade developing this animated film version of Charles Perrault’s 1697 fairy tale about a beleaguered girl, tormented by her unsympathetic stepmother and stepsisters, who gets a chance at romance and a better future through the intervention of her fairy godmother. Disney had the entire film staged with live actors to create reference footage to work from, with the individual characters ultimately animated by Disney’s legendary “Nine Old Men.” Cinderella received three Oscar nominations, for Music (Scoring of a Musical Picture), Sound Recording, and the original song “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo.”
