Ever since "Maleficent", I'm always up for a good Disney retelling with a new twist! Which is why I had high hopes for Disney's newest remake, "Cinderella" (2015).


Boy was I disappointed.

Just... watch this for yourself and you'll see why:


1) Half the scenes in this trailer are complete copies of the original cartoon! From what I've seen, this just looks like a recap of the original film. Looks like lazy filmmaking to me.

2) The plot rips off not only the original "Cinderella", but also "Ever After" (another Cinderella retelling)! It has the exact same story format as "Ever After": prologue focusing on young Cinderella's life with her father; father remarries to stepmother and suddenly dies; Cinderella meets the prince without knowing that he's a prince; yadda yadda yadda.

Here's the plot:
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. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind." She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and -- armed with a pumpkin and a few mice -- changes Cinderella's life forever.

Wonderful. Cinderella Reboot + Cinderella Reboot = Cinderella Reboot.



But then, maybe I'm being too harsh. Maybe the movie will be really good; it's just the trailer that sucks. 
I certainly hope I'm right.

What are your impressions of the trailer? Let me know in the comments section below!


Peace out :D!
Hi folks!

Sorry I haven't updated much lately; I'm busy preparing for grad school and putting my portfolio together. 

Also I now have an Ello account. Haven't updated it yet, as I just signed up last night.

I'm taking a trip this Thanksgiving Break, so don't expect to see anymore drawings until next week.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving :)!

Part of a demo reel I did for an alternate scene in "Maleficent" (2014). It would've been really sweet if Disney further worked "Once Upon a Dream" into the film (and not just in the end credits) ... what if the song was  a serenade that Stefan wrote and sang for Maleficent :D?

Enjoy!

Characters and song belong to Disney
Artwork belongs to myself.
