Over the weekend I went to the Disney Store to peruse any new items they may have received, and I was excited to find new merchandise for the Cinderella movie coming out in less then a month.
I'm so excited!
Last night I was watching Ever After. I'm such a huge fan of that movie (saw it in the movie theater 5 times back in the day), and, even though Cinderella looks gorgeous, it's going to have stiff competition in comparison.
Ever After is Epic.
It's always fun looking at Disney Store merchandise, trying to gleam any spoilers or sneak peaks when new movies are about to be released.
Though, after looking at the dolls I was pretty amused and shocked to see how Prince Charming was modeled.
He does not look happy!
Here he is, getting married (spoilers for those that don't know the story!) . . . (really, does anyone not know how Cinderella ends?), and he looks seriously indifferent, as if this is an arranged marriage or something. As if he's counting down the minutes in his brain until he can get away from his new princess and go off to do whatever Princes enjoy doing.
It's not romantic.
Unlike the picture on the back of the box which is clearly romantic.
There are three other dolls in the series.
I'm somewhat mixed on how the Cinderella doll came out. She's beautiful, but they didn't quite get her face right. There's a whimsicalness the actress processes, as evident in Downton Abbey and the Cinderella trailers, that this doll is missing.
Now the evil stepmother Lady Tremaine, Cate Blanchett, doll is absolutely stunning.
Seriously, she's gorgeous.
The best doll modeling I've seen in a very longtime.
And the doll for the Fairy Godmother is very fun.
I liked her so much I got her for my Renaissance doll collection.
She fits! Even though she doesn't look like a barbie clone. Heh.
Here's an image of more Cinderella merchandise the Disney Store is selling.
I'm getting excited for March 13! :0)
