Cinderella III

Tonight I watched Cinderella III: A Twist in Time. I saw the trailer a while back, and thought that it had an interesting premise. Now that I've seen the film, it was better than I'd expected, so it's definitely overcome the "sequel-itis" problem by being a good film in its own right. It's a feelgood story, so if you like Disney stuff in general then this is well worth your time.

I don't think I've actually seen the original film (from 1950), but I'm familiar with the basic story, and that's all you really need to know to follow this one. I'd describe this as a cross between "Cinderella", "Back to the Future", and "Men in Black"; it's a fairy tale with an SF twist to it. The animation has quite a classic style to it, which I liked - apparently this was the last Disney film to be hand-drawn.
