Western Animation / Cinderella 3D

Go To

Also known as Cendrillon au Far West or Cinderella: Once upon a time in the west, this 2012 CG-animated French film is a bizarre take on the classic Cinderella tale, where Cinderella is an anthropomorphic animal of ambiguous species living out in the Old West.

This movie provides examples of:

  • Beauty Equals Goodness: The titular and good Cinderella is the most beautiful of all the characters, whereas the step mother and her daughters are as ugly inside as they look.
  • Death by Adaptation: The wicked stepmother drowns in quicksand. Blink and you'll miss it, but the stepsisters somehow seemed to have escaped in time, though.
  • Dog Stereotype / Bully Bulldog / Good Animals, Evil Animals:
    • The wicked step mother appears to be a pit bull, while her daughters appear to be bulldogs. Or maybe they're not.
    • The good prince is a beagle.
  • Fairy Tale: The Cinderella story.
  • Horse of a Different Color / Giant Flyer: They ride non-anthropomorphic vultures.

  • Killer Gorilla! Barb Azul is a fearsome gorilla pirate.
  • The Mockbuster: Of Rango. Both feature ugly animals in a western siting that ride birds. It only came out a year after Rango was made, and it shows.
  • Recycled INSPACE: Cinderella...IN THE WEST! It's odder than it sounds.
  • Shout-Out: The pirate leader is named Barb Azul, after Perrault's Bluebeard
  • The Western: They try to make it interesting by placing Cinderella in the West, but it just falls flat.
  • Wilhelm Scream: Heard when the pirates push out a victim out on the plank.
