We've partnered with Disney to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Cinderella by revisiting the 1950 animated classic. Stream the iconic movie on Disney+ now!

Growing up, I watched Disney movies for the magic. Every time I popped my worn-out tape of Cinderella into the VHS player, I couldn't wait for the cinematic moment when her fairy godmother turned a pumpkin into a carriage and conjured shimmering glass slippers out of thin air.

From the friendly mice to the kismet meet-cute with Prince Charming, I lived for every ounce of fairy-tale magic in Cinderella. What I didn't realize as a little girl was that a few important morals lay just beneath the surface of the movie. In fact, I didn't really understand how much I learned from Cinderella until I rewatched the 1950 animated classic as an adult. These four life lessons struck me the most when I watched Cinderella again, but don't just take my word for it — stream the movie on Disney+ to discover them for yourself!
