She then goes to the ball to meet the prince. However, she has to leave the ball at midnight as the magic wears off and she turns back into her former self. She leaves behind a glass slipper that the prince uses to find her and they both live happily ever after. The main focus of this comparison essay is to analyze the similarities and differences of two movie versions of Cinderella: Rodger’s and Hammerstein’s Cinderella and A Cinderella Story.There are a number of similarities in both versions of the movie. Both movies illustrate the mistreatment of step children, the importance of young girls having a father figure in their lives, and the hope of finding true love and living happily ever after.
Cinderella is a 1950 animated fairy tale about Cinderella, a pretty young woman who is treated as a maid by her vicious stepmother and stepsisters in her late father 's estate. She defies her stepmother and through the help of her fairy godmother attends the Grand Ball, where the Prince falls in love with her. In her haste to return home before nightfall, she leaves her glass shoe behind, which subsequently becomes the tool with which the Duke searches the entire kingdom for her. Cinderella later marries the prince and they live happily ever after. Contrary to the popular notion that Cinderella is a model of hope for young girls, I believe Cinderella rather establishes and promotes the ideologies of inferiority of women.
Cinderella was loved by all her animals especially the mice, Gus and Jaq. Her step-sisters were very different from her. They were materialistic and did not like Cinderella. As time passed, Cinderella’s Father also passed away. At that moment, Lady Tremaine began to portray her hatred and jealousy for Cinderella’s beauty.
In the Little Golden Book Cinderella and the prince dance in a circle to represent the unity that will soon be brought. The other way the circle is represented is the fairy dust that is bestowed upon her as the ripped dress is transformed to the stunning blue and white dress she wore to the ball. In the Grimm Brothers version the birds circle her to give her the dress to wear to transform her to see the prince on all the days of the festival, each one better than the last and the shoes were made from gold on the last day of the
Although she wasn’t allowed to go with her sisters, she accepted help from her Fairy Godmother to prepare to make her way there. With her beautiful dress, she received “a pair of glass slippers, the prettiest in the whole world.” At the ball, no one is aware of Cinderella’s true identity. Despite that, the King’s son falls in love with her and she gets a happily-ever-after.
Similarly, Disney’s Cinderella presents a cruel and ambitious stepmother who attempts to arrange marriages for her ugly, foolish, and somewhat comical daughters. In the film, we see their miserable attempt to sing opera, (supposedly in order to appear more feminine) as the mother proudly oversees. In one of the last scenes, she desperately urges them to make the glass slipper fit, and while she doesn’t downright tell them to cut off their toes or heels as in the original (Grimm 119), the comic scene in itself seems to have a subtle layer of tragedy. While these examples prove that female ugliness in fairy tales and their adaptations corresponds to wickedness, and the latter is equivalent to ill-temper, the question of female independence still remains ambiguous. While independent women in fairy tales and their adaptations appear as strong-willed, ambitious, and manipulative individuals that stop at nothing to have their way, they are not entirely free of male authority.
Cinderella is an 1950 animated fairy tale that tells the story of a pretty young woman who resides with her wicked stepmother and stepsisters who have taken control of her late father 's estate and have reduced her to a maid. Cinderella defies her stepmother and through the help of her fairy godmother attends the Grand Ball, where the Prince falls in love with her. The next day, the Duke is dispatched to find the girl whose foot fits Cinderella 's glass shoe, left behind due to her haste in returning home from the Ball, where after Cinderella is married to the Prince and they live happily ever after. Unlike popular notion of Cinderella modelling a hope for young girls, I believe Cinderella is a portrayal of inferiority of women.
The dwarfs are very sad and put Snow White into a glass coffin and kept watch on her night and day until the prince from the beginning of the story finds her and wakes her up with true love’s kiss and they live happily ever after. Snow White in The Grimm’s Fairy Tales has the same outline of the story but the contents are very different.
