Our team geared up for the new live-action Cinderella by reading and watching an insanely large amount of versions of the classic tale, from the 7 BC Egyptian Rhodopis to the 2011 A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song. We get into themes of beauty and it’s worth, social status and neglect as well as why there are just SO many birds.
Make sure you let us know in the comments if there are any other versions we should pick up!
In the new film Maleficent, based on the character from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, we see that the Mistress of All Evil has more of soft side than one might think for someone that casts a curse on an innocent baby. The hosts discuss the astounding visuals, the character’s motivations and the possible themes in the film.
