Walt Disney’s adaptation of Cinderella tells the story of a beautiful young girl who is good and kind, but who is treated cruelly by her stepmother and two ugly stepsisters. She spends her days doing chores, and she tries to do her best. The animals love her, especially two mice named Gus and Jaq. One day the king sends out an invitation to all the young women of the kingdom to attend a ball for his son, the prince, hoping to find him a wife. Cinderella hopes to go to the ball, but her stepmother gives her a long list of chores to do. She does her chores then finds that her animal friends have made a beautiful gown out of a simple dress of her mother’s. When her mean stepsisters see her in the gown, they rip off the beads and ribbons and leave Cinderella in tatters. They go to the ball, and she is left crying in the garden. Suddenly, a fairy godmother appears to Cinderella. She makes a beautiful coach out of a pumpkin and turns the mice into horses and coachmen. She also waves her wand and puts Cinderella into a fabulous gown with glass slippers. She sends her to the ball with a warning to return by midnight when the spell will be reversed. Cinderella meets Prince Charming at the ball, and he is spellbound by her beauty and grace. Hearing the clock begin to strike midnight, Cinderella runs from the prince, leaving a glass slipper behind. The next day the prince sends the grand duke throughout the kingdom with the glass slipper to find the beautiful young woman. When he arrives at Cinderella’s home, her stepmother has locked her in the attic; however, her mice friends free her. Her stepmother trips the duke when he tries to put the shoe on Cinderella, causing the shoe to shatter. Cinderella produces the other shoe from her pocket and it fits perfectly. Shortly afterwards, Prince Charming and Cinderella are married and live happily ever after.

Question # 2

Is this a summary or is this an analysis. Please explain your answer.

Walt Disney’s adaptation of Cinderella highlights meekness, virtuosity, and hard work by emphasizing the positive outcomes for someone who has such qualities. Although Cinderella can take little action on her own, she is rewarded for her virtue and hard work by natural and supernatural forces. Cinderella is depicted as a beautiful young woman who is kind and hardworking. She is faithful to carry out her responsibilities in the limited role that she has as the servant of the house, but she is clearly trapped in a situation that she is powerless to get out of on her own. Her kindness to animals brings her the only comfort she gets throughout the story in her friendship with the mice, Gus and Jaq. Eventually, natural and supernatural forces come to the rescue of the virtuous young Cinderella. The mice work together to create a beautiful gown for Cinderella while she is occupied with completing a long list of chores, but she suffers a setback when her awful sisters tear apart her mother’s dress. In this, and in many other instances, she meekly accepts their mistreatment, never objecting or rebelling. Suddenly, larger forces come into play as she weeps in the garden. Through the supernatural world, Cinderella finds her rescue. She has her very own fairy godmother who appears to her in her darkest hour. The godmother provides a magical affirmation of Cinderella’s good qualities that help her to escape the human cruelty that she has experienced. When she steps into the ball, her beauty is clear for everyone to see, including Prince Charming, who completes her rescue. In the end, the natural and supernatural world combine to reward her for her qualities, and Cinderella lives happily ever after. In this and in many other Disney films, the expectations of women are clear: If they are conventionally beautiful, sweet, and obedient, they will be rewarded—and that reward will come in the form of marriage.

Question 4

Is this a summary or is this an analysis. Please explain your answer.

Red Riding Hood’s actions in “Little Red Riding Hood” imply that giving into temptation and straying from a moral code leads to punishment not just for the sinner (Red Riding Hood is eaten by the wolf), but also for those surrounding them (Red Riding Hood’s grandmother is also devoured). This punishment reinforces Christian moral codes present in medieval Germany, and also stresses the value of obedience to its audience

Question 6

While at first glance Tangled might feel like an unwritten script from the 1990s that’s been given a fresh coat of paint, its story is far more progressive than that of Frozen, and Rapunzel has more feminism in her flowing locks than Anna and Elsa put together. Which is impressive considering she spends the entire movie barefoot.
