I'm so disappointed. I had no clue that Cinderella is now an also-ran.
Last evening I went to Disney on Ice with my daughter and three grandchildren, ages five, three and two. Their eyes lit up and they were held spellbound as Mickey and Minnie skated out and emceed the evening and all the favorite Disney characters came to life. They clapped and yelled, “Hey Mickie Mouse!” just like all the rest of the kids. (I won't talk any about the whining, or having to go pee, or begging for cotton candy, or squirming in the seats or anything.)
It truly was a wonderful show. Very nicely done.
And, I know the kids loved it.
But I was disappointed. Why? Because Cinderella was sort of an also-ran. When did Cinderella become an also-ran? I mean, like, she’s CINDERELLA!
She had one short ice dance with the prince. No mention of the slipper or the wicked stepmother or the fairy godmother, and they didn’t even do the song with the birds, which is my favorite part of the movie.
No. None of that.
Now, they did do Toy Story. Boring.
They did, The Incredibles, whatever they are.
And they did Mulan, some Chinese chick who turned into a fighter to save the day, or something.
But Cinderella got the shaft.
I even thought that maybe she’d be the grand finale, all dressed up in her princess dress, and that the prince would be all decked out, and there would be a pumpkin carriage that would sail them away to happily-ever-after land.
But no. The finale belonged to the Lion King. Which is okay. I love the Lion King.
But I wanted Cinderella.
I may pout all day. What's romance author to do when she realizes Cinderella is an also-ran?
(can you see me crossing my arms and scowling?)
