Following on from the classic story, Cinders 2 is less one film, more a series of separate cartoons reuniting the characters of the first film, spun together with a thread of the fairy godmother reminiscing with the mice.
This is a textbook Disney straight-to-video sequel. With saccharine sentiments and deficiency of villains, it cashes in on an established, classic franchise, surviving on an injection of just enough enthusiasm to bear the Disney name. The animation is good enough, the music is good enough, and the plots are thin but mildly distracting. A few extras are thrown in as a token of goodwill.
If you have a young person in your household who is into the Disney princesses then this will prove a good buy as it has been for our three-year-old daughter. This is one to keep the kids quiet, as opposed to entertain the whole family.
It is assumed if you are considering this as a purchase that you already own the original film. In the unlikely scenario that you do not, then from a monetary perspective consider the box set containing both films.
