Cinderella Lady Tremaine Manipulative Matriarch
Cinderella Dashing downstairs from her lonely attic room, Cinderella excitedly shows off her pretty party dress . lovingly sewed and stitched together by the loyal mice Jaq and Gus and Cinderella's other animal friends, while the mistreated scullery maid's cruel Stepmother Lady Tremaine looks aghast. "I felt that for the story to work, the Stepmother had to be as realistic as Cinderella herself," said directing animator Frank Thomas. "She couldn't be as cartoony or buffoonish as the Stepsisters. I had to find ways to draw her not realistically but as convincingly as Cinderella was drawn. With animators like Marc Davis and Eric Larson working on Cinderella, it was a tough standard to try and come up to." These exquisitely crafted sculptures (Cinderella is plussed with pewter legs) capture all the beauty and hope and heartless menace of Walt Disney's animated masterpiece.
Everyone orders Cinderella around: her cruel stepmother, her awful stepsisters -- even the big clock in the church tower tells her when to start another day of drudgery. But no matter how her family abuses and humiliates her, they can't stop her from dreaming. For dreams are the wishes of Cinderella's heart, and, despite her sadness and hardships, she has faith that someday her wishes of happiness will come true. When the invitation to the royal ball arrives, Cinderella is sure her time has come -- until the evil sisters, with the sly encouragement of Lady Tremaine, tear not only her gown to shreds, but her hopes and dreams as well. "There's nothing left to believe in," she cries, heartbroken and alone. However, though her own words are forgotten for the moment, they still hold the magic that will fulfill her hopes. "No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true ..."
Cinderella is by no means a weak-willed character content to let events flow around her. On the contrary, when the invitation to the royal ball arrives, she uses everything short of physical force to persuade her stepmother that she has every right to attend. This makes her one of the more memorable Disney heroines.
