The 19th century was one of the darkest times in American history because of the prevalence of slavery that took place during that time period, especially in the South. The importation of slaves into the United States was banned in 1808, but by that year there were already approximately one million slaves in America. African American slaves worked long hours and often did not receive sufficient food and clothing from their masters. Although treatment of slaves varied by their master, there was a constant threat of physical punishment looming over slaves and they had no legal rights. The inhumane treatment of slaves, especially female slaves, is depicted in young mother and runaway slave Harriet Jacobs’ autobiography Incidents in the Life of

Every children’s movies come with a memorable quote whether it’s funny or relatable. This could be intentional of the writers from Pixar to Disney. I used the above quote because this quote makes you think. The Lion King came out in 1994 and was one of my favorite movies but I didn’t connect it to my life until I got older. I believe the writers make their movies have a deeper meaning for the purpose of giving adult watchers something to take away from movies geared towards their children. As a young adult, I have learned to appreciate the little lessons from movies e.g. Finding Dory, Inside Out, and Cinderella. Each lesson they teach can be taken in the simplest way possible and even on the deepest way possible. I feel as though the five best children’s movies are Monster’s Inc., Princess and the frog, Toy Story, Frozen and UP.

“Always be a good girl, and I will look down from heaven and watch over you.” (Page 1) The Disney Cinderella was released on February 15th, 1950 but the tale told by The Grimm Brothers is a different twist on the Disney classic movie; instead of a fairy godmother and sweet, little mice running around, The Grimm Brothers wrote about a tree growing on Cinderellas mothers’ grave and with the help of tiny birds, every wish Cinderella makes comes true. The violent version of Cinderella by the Grimm Brother explains the struggle she faced trying to get away from her stepsisters but also keeping her humble and kind side looking for true love.
In the list of the world’s most watched fairy tales, Cinderella is of no exception.
