Trivia: Cinderella

Disney's original film and its sequels include examples of:

  • Dueling Movies: In 1950, a Spanish animation company called Estela Films also released an animated version of the Cinderella story, called Erase una vez.... Disney obviously won, with the former being a lost film.
    • Supposedly, Disney was aware of the Spanish film and copyrighted the name Cinderella/Cenicienta in Spain, so they could not use it for their film's name.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: When you pay attention on who did the voices for the original film and sequels, you realize that Anastasia went from sounding like an evil Smurfette (Lucille Bliss) to a nervous and socially awkward Babs Bunny (Tress MacNeille).
  • Playing Against Type: Verna Felton, known for voicing grumpy and nagging characters (like Matriarch, the Queen of Hearts, Winifred, and Pearl Slaghoople) provides the voice of the kindly and helpful Fairy Godmother.
  • Talking to Himself: The King and the Grand Duke have the same voice actor.
  • What Could Have Been: Originally, Drizella was going to be the one who did the Heel-Face Turn in the third film, but it was Anastasia instead due to her budding Character Development in the second film.
    • Prince Charming originally had more screentime. In a deleted scene, he was seen apparently hunting a deer, but it turned out they were friends and playing a game together, and in another, he's reintroduced to Cinderella after she fits the slipper. While surprised that she was a servant, he accepted her immediately.

The 1957 production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's version contains examples of:

  • Blooper: During a reprise of "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?", the camera closes up on Queen Constantina preparing to sing a line, but Prince Christopher interrupts. Jon Cypher apologized to Dorothy Stickney later that night.
  • Hey, It's That Girl!: Julie Andrews played Cinderella eight years before starring in the film version of Rodgers' and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music. King Maximilian's actor, Howard Lindsay, also happened to become co-writer of the original Broadway version of Sound of Music.
  • Missing Episode: People living on the East Coast saw the musical live in color, while those in the west saw a black-and-white kinescope. The DVD only contains the latter version.

The 1965 remake of Rodgers and Hammerstein's version contains examples of:

  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Pat Carroll, who plays one of the stepsisters, would later play another fairy tale villain (Ursula the Sea Witch) in Disney's The Little Mermaid.
    • Dubbing singers Bill Lee note  and Betty Noyes note  play townspeople during the "Prince Is Giving a Ball" number.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Sony released a DVD in 2002, but pulled it out of print after a few years.

The 1997 remake of the Rodgers and Hammerstein version contains examples of:

  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Most TV remakes of musicals are meant to invoke this trope. This is no exception.
