Cinderella is one of the most popular fairytales of our time because it is a beloved rags-to-riches story that can be inspiring to children. However, it gives them this idea that you must be dependent on others to grant you the things that you want in order to have a happy life. Ellen Jackson wrote a modern version of the fairytale by creating Cinder Edna to show that you don’t have to depend on a fairy godmother or marry a prince to live happily ever after. Therefore, the author displays many differences between them which gives a new and different idea to readers that having a good, strong character will get you through anything in life.

Best known for their creative and fun storylines, Walt Disney Pictures inspires children and adults alike to think, laugh, and cry, often all in the same movie.
