Cinderella is a young girl who is forced into being a servant for her family. She longs for love and affection. She finds it when at the ball, but when she has to leave, she leaves in a hurry and one of the slippers that she is wearing gets left behind at the ball and the Prince finds and starts to look for her. Even though they were separated for short periods of time they still find each other in the end.The Prince takes her to his palace and they get married. This general plot stays the same for all versions of the story, but the differences between Disney’s Cinderella and Grimm’s Cinderella are striking, and they deserve through examination.
However, when “Cinderella” wanted to go to the ball, she could not go because “she does have a suitable dress to go to the ball.” When her two mice friends named “Jacques and Gus”, made her a dress her stepsisters ripped it apart. At this point, she wants to give up; however, her “fairy godmother came, made a carriage for her out of a pumpkin, and made her dress with a glass slipper. She was beautiful. She went with the prince to the ball. Sexton’s version of “Cinderella” is told differently than Disney’s version of the story.
She cried to her mother’s grave and the birds gave her fine dresses, shoes, and lavish accessories to go to the ball for three days, where she meets the prince, falls in love, and later lives happily ever after. The Disney version is about a young girl who is raised by her stepmom because both of her parents died and is forced to be a maid and wait on her step- family’s hand and foot. She attended the ball, despite her wicked stepmother and her ugly daughters, and meets the prince, fell in love and had to leave because the clock struck midnight, which was the time all the magical things her fairy godmother gave her would turn
In all three versions, death is not viewed as definitive, or the end all be all. Instead, there is some element of living after death, and this can be clearly seen in the character of Cinderella 's mother. In the Grimm Brothers version, after being harassed by her stepmother Cinderella runs immediately to her mother 's grave which is beneath a hazel tree. She then cries out asking for a dress so that she can attend the ball when “the bird threw a gold and silver dress down to her, and slippers embroidered with silk and silver” (pg. 3 para 9) This bird is a reincarnation, or extension of her mothers spirit to help Cinderella even after death.
On the third day she returned to the festival with the most dazzling dress and danced with the prince. When she wanted to return home she ran over tar that the prince put on the stair and her slipper stuck but she escaped. The prince swore to only marry the lady who fit the slipper. The eldest stepsister tried first but could not fit the shoe so she cut her
In the story, Cinderella by the Grimm Brothers, the protagonist, Cinderella, endures seemingly unbeatable obstacles on her path to love. The evil stepsisters exemplify a forbidding obstacle that the protagonist of the story must overcome. The constant toxicity and menial tasks that the sisters placed on Cinderella made the task of going to the ball difficult for her. The stepsisters in Cinderella are similar to the green gremlin monsters in the film Destino in that they hinder the progress of the protagonist. The female protagonist in Destino was dancing around when these gremlin monsters ripped away her dress leaving her with a new problem to face.
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
Buttercup then realizes that it is her true love and falls after him.

Knowing little of who Flynn was, a criminal thief, she set out with little trust in him and they begin to fall in love as their adventure see the lights plays
Indeed, the ending of the story is based on the three girls concocting their escape through their intelligence and the cleverness of their words. For example, the two sisters - after being saved by the third girl, who also convinced the wizard to carry on his back a basket full of gold in addition to the other two sisters - repeat twice, from their hiding spot "I'm looking out my little window and I see that you're resting. Get a move on." (Grimms 195) in order to prevent the wicked sorcerer from resting. Similarly, the third sister - while dressed as Fitcher's bird - deceives her bridegroom and the guests by replaying twice the same conversation - which is, arguably, the most meaningful example of the power of language in the
