Cinderella II: When Dreams Come True - A Tale of Mice and Princesses
|"Cinderella II: Dreams Come True" (2002).|
Even though this Cinderella movie was the best-selling of all Disney movies released directly to the home market, it could not satisfy the public's thirst for more fairy tale Cinderella movies, so another fairy tale Disney movie, "Cinderella III: A Twist in Time" followed in 2007 as an odd sort of sequel/prequel.

When the Fairy Godmother is reading it aloud one day, Cinderella's mice friends Gus (Corey Burton) and Jaq (Rob Paulsen) arrive too late. The mice resolve to tell what happened to Cinderella after she married the handsome prince, and three stories, in particular, come to mind.

Lucifer tries to catch them, but they drop a bucket of water on her and she is so upset that she leaves Lucifer.
