Have courage and be kind.

“When there is kindness, there’s goodness, and when there is goodness, there’s magic”

Watched Cinderella over the weekends and to be honest, I wasn’t really interested in the movie. (But my friend wanted to, so ok loh) But throughout the show I kept crying because it was so touching at some parts hahahaha. I’ve watched the original Cinderella cartoon so many times, but it never occurred to me as a sad story. (Lost her mother and father, grew up with evil stepmother and stepsisters and had no one to talk to except mice and a goose) But maybe seeing it in real life settings, made it somehow a little more relatable?

I also liked that the movie was a little different from the original Cinderella. It wasn’t really a love at first sight kind of thing, at least they had some interaction before that.. And the ending where she was going to face the prince as just who she was with no beautiful gown and hair (no magic to help her anymore), and she wasn’t sure if the prince would accept her as who she really is. It’s like teaching us to face the world with courage even though we’re imperfect.

Love the animation, the blue dress, the glass slippers, the house… And the soundtrack too, especially the ending song:

In a perfect storybook the world is brave and good
A hero takes your hand, a sweet love will follow
But life’s a different game, the sorrow and the pain
Only you can change your world tomorrow

Let your smile light up the sky
Keep your spirit soaring high

Trust in your heart and your soul shines forever and ever
Hold fast to kindness, your light shines forever and ever
I believe in you and in me
We are strong

When once upon a time in stories and in rhyme
A moment you can shine and wear your own crown
Be the one that rescues you
Through the clouds you’ll see the blue

Trust in your heart and your soul shines forever and ever
Hold fast to kindness, your light shines forever and ever
I believe in you and in me
We are strong

A bird all alone on the wind can still be strong and sing
Sing

Trust in your heart and your soul shines forever and ever
Hold fast to kindness, your light shines forever and ever
I believe in you and in me
We are strong

The movie was way better than I’d expected and I’m so going to buy the DVD when it’s out!! The kind of movie I’ll re-watch again and again haha.
