Cinderella III: A Twist in Time: Lady Tremaine Strikes Back
|"Cinderella III: A Twist in Time" (2007).|
DisneyToon Studios' "Cinderella III: A Twist in Time" (2007), directed by Frank Nissen, thus became the second Disney movie sequel to the classic fairy tale "Cinderella," and fans generally like it much better than the first Cinderella sequel and similar Disney movies. Many purists still think it reflects poorly on the 1950 Disney movie classic "Cinderella," but you can't please everyone.
|Cinderella and her Prince.|
Anastasia (Lesli Margherita), Cinderella's evil step-sister, stumbles upon the Fairy Godmother's wand, and after a struggle, Lady Tremaine (Susanne Blakeslee) has the wand and the Fairy Godmother has been turned to stone.
|Anastasia is a fully fleshed-out character in "Cinderella III."|
Using the wand again, Lady Tremaine makes Cinderella's glass slipper fit Anastasia's foot, so she is assumed to be the one who danced with Prince Charming at the ball. Stay away from the palace, Lady Tremaine warns as she breaks Cinderella's other glass slipper, but Cinderella sneaks over there with Gus and Jaq anyway.

|A beautiful ceremony.|
|Anastasia is a fun character at the theme parks.|
