Award-winning British actor Jim Broadbent lends his voice to this brilliantly hilarious cartoon based on a story by Babette Cole. Fairy-tale fantasy is turned on its head this time, as a fairy godmother in training commits the ultimate faux pas and transforms a handsome young man into an ugly ape. Prince Cinders then spends all his time doing housework, while his brothers traipse about creating havoc. Who will be his Princess Charming?

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Prince Cinders, a short animated twist on the classic Cinderella story is silly and fun. There are brief moments of slight cartoonish violence -- slapping, falling, screaming -- and some scenes with characters being served martinis in a disco, but on the whole, this is a creatively entertaining re-imagining of a classic fairy tale that might get kids starting to think about gender roles.
