Cinderella & Prince Royal Introduction. UPDATE AS OF 1/21/11: "As the first shipments of the Walt Disney Classics Collection sculpture Cinderella and Prince Charming: Royal Introduction have started to arrive an error has been brought to our attention. This sculpture was intended to have both a 60th Anniversary Backstamp (commemorating the film's anniversary) and a Numbered Limited Edition 750 mark. The sculpture does have the Anniversary Backstamp but is missing the Edition Box where the pieces would ordinarily be hand-numbered as they are produced. Since the sculptures have dispersed worldwide, the pieces and accompanying certificates can not be numbered. Instead, the sculpture will be reclassified as a Limited Edition 750 rather than a Numbered Limited Edition 750. We will be updating Facts & Firsts for 2011 to correct the description from a Numbered Limited Edition to its current status as a Limited Edition 750."
Arrayed in her miraculous, luminous gown,Cinderella never looked so radiant as the aptly named Prince Charming kisses the hand of the surprised scullery maid in disguise. Walt Disney had originally
intended to spotlight the Prince in a lighthearted introductory sequence, but still this royal romancer shines in the Ball sequence as the guest of honor charmingly sweeps the mystery guest off her feet.
This exquisite sculpture is plussed with metallic and opalescent paint and real pearl earrings on Cinderella.
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.
