    A fascinating all-new featurette giving insight into the creation of Cinderella
    In doing research for the Cinderella DVD, a rare treasure was unearthed in the Disney Archives -- an
    envelope that had not been opened since 1949 in which there were photographs of a full set of
    storyboards for a version of Cinderella that is different from the final film as we know it. In the
    course of developing one of the world's most well-known fairy tales into an animated film, Walt and
    his creative team explored many ideas that ultimately did not work. Join Don Hahn, the Producer of
    Disney's Beauty And The Beast, on the journey to discover the Cinderella that almost was.

    Oh yea!

    I'm so happy that I could squeak like a singing mouse.

    I knew requesting it three times a week would eventually pay off.

                    Here's the review from

                    It's a great set outside of a few obviously odd bonus features. I just watched the movie tonight. The transfer is stunning, and there are some wonderfully interesting documentaries on the second disc.
