The movie Cinderella is an American animated musical produced by Walt Disney, which has become a classic film. It was released in February 1950, after two years of production. It became the greatest hit for the Disney studio since Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) and is considered one of the best American animated films ever made. The movie was based on the French fairy tale, written in 1698 by Charles Perrault.
The film was nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Scoring of a Musical Picture, Best Sound Recording and Best Song for “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo.” Other popular songs in the film include “Cinderella,” “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes,” “The Work Song” and “So This is Love.”
