Wow, I didn't know that a lot of people like the movie Cinderlla. I think my teacher read the story of Cinderella to my class in 1st to 6th grade.

I see the word cinder in Cinderella. How interesting. 8) Cinder means ashes. I think Cinderella works near a fireplace, no? I am also reminded of the Old French word cendre that means ashes. I think Cinderella is a French fairytale? Maybe I'm wrong.

Sorry for the slightly off-topic post. I just found my observations intersting.

Yes. That's why she's called Cinderella. Her real name is Ella, and she "sleeps among the cinders". I think thats how the musical says it.

I don't quite understand why everyone gets all bent out of shape for some of the extras being geared toward kids. They have to put in some stuff for the kids who will undoubtably get this dvd as well. All in all it seems like a great release and I'm definitly excited about it. The extra about the missing storyboard sounds really interesting and will be one of the ones that I'll watch.

Thanks for the information shr_fan. I wonder if the DVD will mention a musical or the French influence. Hmm

I do want to watch the storyboard videos and the behind-the-scenes fotage too.

Because more extras for kids = less extras for adults. The childish extras waist disc space.

I'm wondering if this DVD will have a celebrity host in the way that Snow White had Angela Lansbury and Bambi had Patrick Stewart? I really like their involvement with those releases, and would like to see another celebrity of the same stature and skill in hosting on this one.

Assuming a commentary track ends up being included, I'm not seeing any complaints here for things that <i>aren't</i> included, and if there aren't any of those, it doesn't make much sense to have so many complaints about things that <i>are</i> included

Interesting. <i>Alice</i> was among his lesser favorites too, right? I remember a quote about it having no heart, or something along those lines.

I can explain the french influence you were wondering about...
The story "Cindrellion" (not 100% on the spelling) was written in the 1800's by french author Charles Perrault. I guess the movie's setting would be France too? And yes the "Cendre" was used in the name to mean ashes. :roll:

I wonder if the fact that both "Alice" and "Sleeping Beauty" made little money had some effect on his opinion on them, hehe.

haha... possibly! Actually it wouldn't surprise me. He was a perfectionist, and if some of his projects weren't as well received by his beloved public, he might well have looked upon them more critically.

This is true. It went on to reverse that though, whereas SB and Alice are still seen as the less-loved classics, and Fantasia was understandably different than what people expected, but I see your point.
