3 para 9) This bird is a reincarnation, or extension of her mothers spirit to help Cinderella even after death. Similarly, in the Little Golden Book version, Cinderella 's mother comes back to Cinderella as an actual fairy godmother. In this version, the representation of Cinderella 's mother helps Cinderella with her dress as well as the fairy godmother “looked at it [the dress]. “Good heavens” and with a wave of her magic wand, she turned the rag into a exquisite gown” (pg 6). Additionally, Cinderella 's mother 's spirit extends through death again in the film as an actual fairy godmother to help Cinderella.
Readers get some background information about him and what type of prince he is (eg) . With Ellen’s dislikeable attitude towards Poppy, she still offers and insists to help Ellen break out of the evil magic deal, which is an expected Cinderella-like behavior. Prince Christian is the one who suggests that Poppy should take Ellen’s place because she knows her way around breaking spells (again suggesting that Christian was smart-risking a girl he likes and puts his trust in her). Poppy willingly takes Ellen’s place knowing there can be big consequences that can happen to her if Corley finds out. This fairy tale has Cinderella being played as a pawn in a dark magical plan from her evil godmother, an element not commonly seen in such fairytales .Poppy’s real maturity is shown at the end when her actual age is revealed - 16 years old.
The Grimm brothers however have a different point of view on that matter. They feel that what you do will come back to haunt you and you can’t be a sinful person and be forgiven. Cinderella was always kind and compassionate and she got rewarded for that, she married the prince and escaped her horrible life. She no longer weeps at her mother’s grave and cries herself to
In the Grimm Brothers version of Cinderella the theme is what you push out into the world is what people get in return. That is the message believed to come from the Grimm Brothers because she was treated badly and at the end the evil stepsisters get there eyes pecked out the helper birds that helped make Cinderella dress and shoes. In the Little Golden Book version of Cinderella the beloved theme is ensure kindness and carry courage with oneself and the rest will follow. That is believed to the theme because when Cinderella was kind and had courage everything good in her life followed, like her gog to the ball and having a new and fair life with the prince. In the 2015 Disney Film of Cinderella the theme is believed to be, have kindness and have
Despite the chores and bad treatment being a similarity, the godmother figures and magical transformations are different. To begin with, Cinderella had chores and was treated badly, which was similar in both stories. In the Iraqi version, “As soon as she was mistress of the house the stepmother began to leave all the work for the fisherman's daughter to do. She would not give her stepchild soap to wash her hair and feet, and she fed her nothing but crusts and crumbs. The girl bore this patiently, saying not a word, but she thought ‘I picked up the scorpion with my own hand so I'll save myself with my own mind’” (“Little Red Fish”).
As you read, reflect upon the way fairy tales made you feel and act as a child. Fairy tales, in reality, implant unrealistic expectations and stereotypes into children’s minds. Let’s first take a look at the general Disney fairy tale movie storyline. In almost every movie, the men have full control over the women’s lives, resulting in the objectification of female characters. For example, Prince Charming is the one to “help” Cinderella get everything she ever wanted.
Even though Mrs. Reed promised her deceased husband that she would care for Jane as if she was one of her own children, Mrs. Reed encourages everyone in the house to never hesitate to tell Jane that she is a failure in everything she does. At the young age that Jane is, she should not yet be self conscious of her appearance and concerned about her level of beauty, yet she becomes “humbled by the consciousness of physical inferiority to Eliza, John, and Georgiana Reed” (Bronte 7). The Reed family fits into the stereotype of inner beauty not matching outer beauty; they are extremely rich and beautiful, yet they lack basic levels of compassion.
Sexton’s version of “Cinderella” is told differently than Disney’s version of the story. In Saxton’s version, the story is similar to Disney’s version, but in this version it is told differently. In this version, when the father sees his two step daughters he gives them two gifts which are “jewels and gowns, but only gives Cinderella a twig” which is a part of tree. Once
He tends to rely on the ancient notion that a female’s independence against a male figure can only be asserted by the wife or mother of the character. In The Grey Fairy Book, the image illustrating Donkey Skin reveals that the role of the fairy is to be a savior. The princess has a sad facial impression while kneeling before the fairy. The fairy appears to be stretching her hand out down to the kneeling princess as a sign of comfort (Held and Berdock, 2011). The imagery is a symbol of unconditional guidance, support and relief.
Beauty was definitely mentioned since the main character’s name was Beauty and she was the prettiest of the three sisters. The villain in the storyline would depend on the perspective of the tale. The two older sisters were always rude to Beauty, but on the other hand, Beauty’s father got into mischief which caused the Beast to take Beauty away from her father. The hero may be Beauty because she figured a way to create happiness even though she was away from her father. Another hero would be the Beast because he took her to his castle, away from Beauty’s mean
Disney has successfully given viewers of their movies warm and comforting feelings because there is always a happy ending. Disney productions have also taught young children the difference between good and evil. Films such as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” and “Cinderella” are two of their earlier movies that are vastly different, but share similarities as well. For instance, both Cinderella and Snow White are beautiful princesses that are forced to be maids and have similar antagonists in their stories, which are evil step mothers who are jealous of their step daughter 's beauty. In the Disney film,“Snow White,” she had been deprived of having any kind of relationship with the outside world.
