'Cinderella' on Blu-ray in October

Posted Mon Apr 30, 2012 at 12:30 PM PDT by

Disney announces the Blu-ray release of this long-awaited classic for October 2, 2012.

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 they can't stop her from dreaming, and Cinderella has faith that some day her wishes will come true. When an invitation to the royal ball arrives, Cinderella is sure her time has come -- until her stepsisters, with the encouragement of Lady Tremaine, tear her gown to shreds. Just when Cinderella believes all is lost, her Fairy Godmother appears, and with a wave of her wand and “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” transforms an ordinary pumpkin into a magnificent coach and Cinderella’s rags into a gorgeous gown, then sends her off to the Royal Ball. But Cinderella’s enchanted evening must end when the spell is broken at midnight. It will take the help of her daring animal mice friends and a perfect fit into a glass slipper to create the ultimate fairy tale ending.

The suggested retail price for the combo pack is $39.99.

Disney has also announced that they will be releasing a 6-Disc Jewelry Box Set which will have a suggested retail price of $89.99 and will no doubt contain the original movie and the 'Cinderella' sequels.

Technical specifications include: 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio mix and a 1.0 DTS-HD Master Audio Theatrical Mix.
