    You guys have to admit, this is one of the few better Disney sequels, even compared to others, & it is a helluva lot better than Cinderella II.

    Animation: The animation was beautifully done as it should be, & the characters remained the same.

    Characters: The stepmother was ... read moreas evil, & as she was in the first two films, but lacks the scariness she had in the very first one. Cinderella was the fighter as she was, & the rest of the characters were they're usual. Anastasia, became much more fleshed out & likable. The problem was how they removed the rest of the mice & birds.

    Plot/Story: It works perfectly for the movie. The idea of Cinderella having to fight to get back things the way they were because of the cruel, selfishness of her stepmother makes the movie worthy.

    Music/Songs: The songs are terrible & forgettable. The score fits nicely, but the songs in here, I was wondering if the directors &/or songwriters were even thinking while the singers sang them. I wish Alan Menken would have written the songs.

    So in final summation, it's not as good as the original (obviously), but its written very well compared to other straight to DVD Disney sequels.

    Better than it has any real right to be, Cinderella III is a true movie made for the small screen, not episodes of a defunct television show strung together or full of sub-par animation. A Twist in Time may be obvious at some points and become downright grating in the last ten m... read moreinutes, but there's always something (even mildly) entertaining going on. Am I saying it's great? No. It's enjoyable, right down to the same smooth animation style-lack of fine detail in the human characters-from the original movie.

    Really liked it. This is the real Cinderella. This was a pretty good adventure. I really liked the story. Sequels are usually bad this one is good.

    Providing an accurate backstory on its original, and developing its characters in honest emotion, Cinderella 3, while it has its corny moments, is still a rare gem in Disney's line of DVD sequels

    Cute and surprisingly clever storyline. Does the original proud!

    It was a great Disney sequel. It had great animation, music, adventure, backgrounds, characters, voice cast, acting and a very fun storyline. I like this one better than the original. I strongly recommend this movie for kids and adults.

    This was very entertaining considering Cinderella's awesome carriage-jumping and the Prince having an actual personality (and jumping out of a palace window). Love it.

    you can tell it's a different artist because Cinderella doesn't look the same and I don't like how they don't go back to the life they had before stepmother rewinded

Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy

It is, at a minimum, fun to watch; occasionally because it is clever, frequently because it is dumbfounding. Full Review

Rory L. Aronsky, Film Threat

At the very least, this was treated with a level of dignity and poise that you generally don't get from the kind of low-grade trash that our mermaid, genie, and Indian princess counterparts have endured. Full Review

Your kids will really enjoy Cinderella III for about a week, and then they'll forget all about it. Full Review

Sharp direction, a healthy attention to sillyheart detail, and warm voicework lift this sequel away from mediocrity at every turn. Full Review

...all in all, Cinderella III makes a fairly good showing for itself, insofar as these direct-to-video affairs go. Full Review
