1997's Cinderella

There are few made-for-TV spectaculars as egregiously underrated as The Wonderful World of Disney (and Whitney Houston’s) 1997 imagining of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.” Hannah and Audrey personally ran their VHS ragged. In this episode, they regale us with fun facts, secrets, and LOVING TAKES on what might be their favorite movie ever.


HUGE thanks to Kendra James for writing the incredible oral history of the making of this movie. We could not have made this episode without her!
