“Cinderella III: A Twist in Time” (2007)

Disney straight to video sequels tend to get a bad rap (not unjustifiably), but this is one of the better ones, and the one that’s probably the most surprising, especially after Cinderella IIturned out so awful. But for some reason, for this one the writers and animators actually felt like they were legitimately trying. The story is solid and flows naturally. The characters are actually improved versions of their original counterparts. There’s a surprising amount of humor that actually works. And the film actually manages to have two climaxes without having the second one feel at all unnecessary. It’s not perfect, but compared to the other straight to video sequels, it might as well be.
