Today we’re talking about the 2007 film Cinderella III: A Twist in Time.
Interesting, if overdone, idea of using time travel and magic to alter what originally happened in the first movie. It’s endearing for nostalgia and because the prince, still unnamed, is the nicest person alive.
The characters are all played by different actors than the original and they do a wonderful job. The king gets a little more character development, as do the stepsisters.
The prince again is absolutely the nicest person and really rolls with the ridiculousness of the plot.
Some of the dialogue is quite clever and some was intentionally funny. Overall, it wasn’t great.
Visuals and Music
The art was pretty, especially when it borrowed from the original, but not the best quality for Disney. They definitely took some shortcuts and it shows that this was straight to video release.
The music is pretty good and really takes inspiration from the original.
The first time I saw the movie I liked it, the second it was okay. It doesn’t have the narrative or humour levels that many Disney movies have that make it re-watchable. It’s better than the second one, but no where near the original.
All that said, it is watchable.
This is a cute straight to video Disney sequel that is fun to watch but utterly forgettable.
Final Score: 2.5 Stars out of 5
