Disney’s newest Cinderella, a live-action version with Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother and Lily James as Cinderella delighted many, including FangirlNation’s reviewer, when it came out in the theaters. The lavish costumes, the updates to personalities, and the beauty of the production made it a welcome addition to the array of retellings.
On September 15, 2015 it will be available for home viewing. Disney is releasing it in just about every format. You can purchase it as Digital HD/SD, Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA), Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, or see it via On-Demand.
