    Expect healthy if not quite humongous sales and rentals for "Cinderella III: A Twist in Time," Disney's second made-for-vid sequel to the Mouse Factory's 1950 take on the classic fairy tale. Lightly amusing animated vidpic should satisfy its obvious target aud of easily distracted moppets, doting and/or indulgent parents and grandparents, and tweeners who still dream of becoming princesses.

    Maybe it's because I don't have any daughters, but I wouldn't dream of buying this. I'm really tired of these direct-to-video sequels. :

    Yeah, I wouldn't even dream of getting this for my niece! Only the originals for her, no sequels!!! I tried to watch a preview type thing of it on the Disney site to see how bad it really is and I couldn't take more than two minutes of it. Just awful.

    Perhaps if all of us grew a pair and refused to buy it, it might have an impact.
    Yeah, there aren't enough of us, but we'd all feel better and $12 richer for the effort.

    Actually, I really enjoyed the movie. The songs could use work, but other than that it was good.

    It really bothers me to think that if I lower my expectations, and dump $20 of straight to video shlock, that I will think it's just O.K...

    Peoples, this isn't a reworking of Care Bears, or even Scooby Doo. This is the legacy of Walt Disney's creative direction. A true gem in the the crown of the history of motion picture animation. Reduced to half hearted Saturday morning drivell.

    Time and Time again I hear all the grousing about how all the 'Cheap-quels' are really tarnishing the Disney brand name because they keep taking, beloved stand alone films and reducing them to corperate product, for a quick fast buck, and yet people seem to drink the corperate Kool-Aid and buy it.

    If we don't buy crap, Disney will stop making crap, and just may be they will spend their time money and talents and releasing QUALITY products. Original ideas. New stories, new lands. Something that people 50 years from now will cherish as we cherish Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi, Alice, Ariel. ect ect.

    I mean what's next?

    For all of you that have an opinion WITHOUT watching it, the basis is, she didn't need MAGIC because the Prince loved her, and she loved him, and LOVE is more powerful than a magic spell. The part with the pumkin coach was AMAZING! I'm never ok with the voices they use *Minnie*cough*Daisy*cough*really obvious*cough and the songs are no "A Dream a Wish Your Heart Makes", but I liked the story and Prince Charming acting goofy and Cinderella stepping up and being a hero. It was cool.

    I'm glad the quality has improved since the early 90s and that some of you like them, butwhile these have made a fortune for Disney, it was partially responsible for the downfall of Disney 2D theatrical animation.

    The general public realized that going to the theater for a Disney toon was just too expensive compared to buying a direct to DVD for the home.

    I also liked it. Maybe if we all buy it and watch it and boycot the 3-d movies they will go back to disney 2-d. Heck there doing it with The Frog Prince in 2009, now all they need to do is get Alan Menkin on it instead of the guy that does the pixar movie songs.

    You know there is a way to do direct-to-video animation, but sequels aren't it.

    As Sailerm advises, just say, "No!", to ill-conceived sequels.
