Just about half a year after a great opening reception, Disney’s live-action adaptation of Cinderella (2015) hits the shelves on Blu-Ray and DVD. Presented in stunning HD, the film can now be watched again and again, just like its cartoon predecessor.
Along with the film itself, the usual sound and caption settings, and previews for new films, the disks also contain various special features that can make your experience watching Cinderella even better.
The DVD’s special features include:
- Ella’s Furry Friends: This feature gives audiences a closer look at the animals of Cinderella. Interviews with the crew in charge of the animals reveal how much work goes into making the cutest cast members work well together.

The Blu-Ray is loaded with even more bonus content:
- A Fairy Tale Comes to Life: In this special feature, the minds behind the film discuss the universality of Cinderella’s story.
