Not my favorite Disney Princess, but still a masterpiece
I think Cinderella is the perfect intro to the Disney Princess movies for kids. No scary villains, (the stepmother and stepsisters are mean, but not scary), no suspense, (mild conflict between the mice and cat, but a lot more funny than tense.) Cinderella is humble, respectful and hardworking despite her unfair circumstances, and in the end, Cinderella's kindness and patience are rewarded. Everyone always acts like the prince is the one who saves Cinderella from her stepfamily, but I have always felt that it was really Cinderella's positive outlook and faith that her dreams would come true, (hence, the fairy godmother.) It may be unrealistic how soon she falls in love with the prince, but hey, the magic is unrealistic, the talking mice are unrealistic. If you are worried about your kids, then just explain to them that it's just a movie, just made up for fun. I think a lot of you adults need to be reminded of that too, so many people take these movies way too seriously. Honestly, I think my biggest concern about this movie is the way kids could view stepparents, so just make sure you explain to your kids that not all stepparents are mean.
