Overview

Fifty years after releasing their opulent adaptation of the classic fairy tale Cinderella, Walt Disney Productions revisits the characters in this direct-to-video sequel. Cinderella 2: Dreams Come True encompasses three short stories; first, after Cinderella (voice of Jennifer Hale) marries Prince Charming (voice of Christopher Daniel Barnes), she finds it difficult to reconcile her new station in life with the simple ways she's known in the past. Secondly, the friendly mouse Jacques (voice of Rob Paulsen) wishes he could be a human being -- but after the Fairy Godmother (voice of Russi Taylor) makes it so, he discovers it's a lot tougher than he imagined. And finally, Cinderella takes pity on her stepsister, Anastasia (voice of Tress MacNeille), and teaches her how to smile in the hopes she can find a love of her own. Cinderella 2: Dreams Come True also includes a new song by Brooke Allison, "Put It Together."

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
One ponders lots of questions as the previews roll on Cinderella II: Dreams Come True, such as: Will it be a straight-ahead sequel, like The Hunchback of Notre Dame II? Or will it be more of a next-generation tale, such as Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure? After all, it's safe to assume that, in the years since Disney's 1950 masterpiece appeared, Mr. and Ms. Charming might have a family. In fact, Dreams Come True takes a third tack, providing a three-story anthology with characters from the original in stories that flesh out "happily ever after" in TV-series-ready form. In the first episode, newlywed Cinderella is thrust into the role of Her Royal Hostess but finds herself at odds with stuffy tradition. In the second, comical mouse Jacques wishes he were human. Finally, the third story affords Cinderella a chance to work her redemptive magic on one of her wicked stepsisters, who learns to smile and, naturally, finds her own true love. Dreams cannot capture the majesty of the original, but it is a pleasant diversion for children.
