While many think Cinderella it is thought of a poor girl that had a good life with her parents. Cinderella had a mother and a Father at the beginning of all three versions of Cinderella. The Father figure and Cinderella had a terrible woman live with them because The Father thought that Cinderella would need a Mother figure since her biological mother had passed away, right? Well, many people think that but what if the ways the interpretation of Cinderella is about to change. The three tales of Cinderella analyzed have very similar structure and substance, themes, archetypes like the circle and of course the Godmother character deviates significantly from each other.
At that moment, Lady Tremaine began to portray her hatred and jealousy for Cinderella’s beauty. She moved Cinderella to the attic, turned her into a slave when her daughters had drained the family of its wealth. Cinderella worked all day doing all the house chores and bathing Lady Tremaine’s cat, Lucifer. One day, the King’s messenger arrived with a special invitation which ordered all young maidens ready for marriage to attend a royal
They do, which frees the boys and reveals a rainbow bridge that carries the girls off, leaving the boys behind. Liana and Alexa soon run out of food.

Alexa wants to stay, but Liana wants to honor the promise they made to Melody, and they argue. Liana leaves and Alexa stays, ripping off her necklace in anger.
One very well known fairy tale that has changed a great deal over the years is Snow White. For example most of us know the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In the Disney version of Snow White she is a young, kind,and beautiful princess who was a friend to all animals. Her evil stepmother grows envious of her beauty and her attention from the young Prince and wants to kill her so that she can be the fairest in the land. the stepmother recruits a huntsman to kill Snow White but he takes Mercy on her and Spirits her life and that is when she runs into the dorbz home in the woods.
Have you ever wondered how things that you experienced as a child shape the person you are today? Think back to the days you watched classic fairy tale movies such as Cinderella and The Little Mermaid. Have you noticed yourself or others following the fairy tale stereotype of associating fairy tales with fluffy dresses and high heels? As a child, you may have thought nothing of the imaginary stories and plots of such tales. As you read, reflect upon the way fairy tales made you feel and act as a child.
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.
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.
Whether that be through the plotline itself, or even through its imagery, fairy tales seem to have a great impact on us from our first interactions with the stories. However, that can be both good and bad. Many fairy tales seem to have similar storylines where a princess ends up being saved by a prince. When faced with a character who is supposed to be an inspiration, especially at a young age, all you want to do is be like them. What do we say to little girls who grow up thinking they have to wait for their ‘Prince
