Ella lives in a magical little town with her mother and father. One day Ella looses her mother suddenly to an illness and promises her that she will always have Courage and be kind always. While out on a trip her merchant father perishes and Ella is suddenly stuck with her evil stepmother and two stepsisters. Low on funds her cruel new family takes everything for themselves and put Ella to work as their house maid. In spite of everything Ella refuses to give up hope of a good life and one day when she receives an invitation from the handsome stranger she met in the woods to attend the ball. Ella uses one of her mothers old dresses to create a beautiful gown for the ball, but her evil stepmother forbids her to go and allows her stepsisters to destroy her dress. Just when all hope is lost help comes in an unlikely form of an old beggar.
- This was a great version of a classic family movie that we all know. The special effects are amazing , and this is a very fun movie to watch. If you’re looking for something light to watch that will have you smiling and in a good mood by the end , but want to skip a cartoon this is the one to watch.
