With just a week to go before Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment releases its live action reboot of Cinderella (available to own on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on September 15, 2015). A slew of bonus feature sneak peeks have been offered up from the Studios around the world. We have also previously shared several clips from additional bonus features as well as from the alternate opening. All of the newly released clips are from the bonus feature titled ‘A Fairy Tale Comes to Life’ and feature cast and crew talking about various aspects of turning the animated classic into a live action film. Note that many of the clips below, although in English, also feature localized subtitles.
Hallmark has provided us with this first look at their D23 Expo 2015 exclusive itty bittys set of Wedding Cinderella and Prince Charming, commemorating the 65th anniversary of the Walt Disney animated classic. The set will be sold exclusively at their booth which will be located in Hall A, located near the StagePass distribution.
We hope to have pricing and edition sizes soon, which we will provide as soon as that information becomes available to us.
In addition to the itty bittys, Hallmark will also offer an exclusive black & white paint version of their 2013 Band Concert Keepsake Ornament, commemorating the 80th anniversary of the animated short.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment today announced that the live-action reboot of Cinderella will be available to own on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on September 15, 2015. Bonus features will include the Frozen Fever short as well as more than twelve minutes of deleted scenes, including the alternate opening titled ‘Ella’s Childhood’ which we have previously reported. In addition, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has released a clip from from the alternate opening, which you can find embedded below. We have also previously shared several clips from additional bonus features, which you can view here.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment may be keeping us all in suspense as to when they will finally announce the Blu-ray release of its live-action Cinderella and which bonus features will be included, but fortunately Walt Disney Studios Australia (who released the film two weeks after the United States) has not already targeted for a June 24 release, but has begun releasing several short snippets from the bonus features — most of which we previously mentioned here — all of which you can find embedded below.
Amazon has put up a track list for the upcoming Cinderella entry in the Disney Music Emporium Legacy Collection, commemorating the 65th anniversary of the animated film. Featuring artwork by Walt Disney Animation artist Lorelay Bove, Amazon describes the 2 disc set as containing 7 lost chords (which all appear to have been previously released as part of the ‘Lost Chords’ collection), along with 9 bonus tracks. The track listing, as per Amazon, is as follows:
With still no official announcements on its home release, we have learned of a couple of additional bonus features for the Blu-ray release of Cinderella (now available for pre-order), thanks to the British Board of Film Classification. As expected, Frozen Fever will be included as a bonus feature as well as ‘Alternative Opening: Ella’s Childhood’ which clocks in at just under three minutes. We will continue to update as deleted scenes and other features are revealed.
Ahead of any official announcements, the British Board of Film Classification has rated several bonus features for the Blu-ray release of Cinderella (now available for pre-order), which you can find detailed below.
The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new Stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family.
Walt Disney Music and Vevo have released a lyric music video for ‘Making Today A Perfect Day’ by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Bobby Lopez from Disney’s newest animated short, Frozen Fever, which you can find embedded below. The song is also available digitally for purchase from iTunes and Amazon. Those who purchased the physical CD of the original motion picture soundtrack to Cinderella can also download the song free of charge with the provided code.
In Frozen Fever, it’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk.
With what appears to be a decision reversal for Disney Music, the original song composed for Frozen Short by Oscar winning couple Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, ‘Making Today A Perfect Day’ is now available for purchase as a single from iTunes. Those who purchased the physical CD of the original motion picture soundtrack to Cinderella can also download the song free of charge with the provided code.
We sincerely apologize for earlier reports from us which explicitly suggested that this would not be the case and that the Cinderella soundtrack would be the only way to obtain the new Frozen Fever tune for the foreseeable future, but this was based on information that we were provided directly from Disney Music.
With an originally advertised release date of March 17, 2015 looming dangerously near with no official mention of the Toy Story 20th Anniversary entry in the Disney Music Emporium’s Legacy Collection, several readers have reached out to us asking if we had any additional information. We, in turn, have reached out to Disney Music to confirm rumors that the Toy Story album may be delayed and we regret to report that a delay has in fact been confirmed to us. While we have seen reports about a May release, the information given to us by Disney Music was not quite as optimistic, offering only that the release date is officially ‘to be determined’ and Disney is hopeful that it is ready for release by the time Disney D23 Expo happens in August. Specific reasons for its delay were not provided, however it is interesting to note that one of the titles — Cinderella — was announced for an early release at the Expo, but has been moved up by over a month.
