Cinderella 1988.jpg

After its final theatrical re-release on November 20, 1987, Cinderella was released on home video for the first time on October 4, 1988, and like other Disney films, we don't see the RKO Radio Pictures or a Buena Vista Film Distribution logo.

There was a demo version of the tape that had the 1984 Walt Disney Classics logo, marking the logo from 1984-1988. What's even weirder to know is that the trailer for Oliver & Company indeed has closed captions, despite the greenband screen.

Cinderella sold over 7.2 million copies during sales through April 30, 1989, when the video was discontinued.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The timeless story of Cinderella remains one of Walt Disney's finest animated achievements of all time. Burdened with endless chores, Cinderella holds fast to dreams of someday escaping her drudgery. With some help from her small friends Jaq and Gus, a Fairy Godmother and some "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" from a magical wand, Cinderella's breathtaking triumph is the original "rags to riches" story that provides unparalleled, everlasting entertainment. Brilliantly told through romance, fantasy and song, Cinderella is a classic adventure for one and all The New York Times.
