Présentation de l'éditeur

With its kind heroine who receives her just reward-and a dashing prince-with the help of her Fairy Godmother, "Cinderella" is one the most beloved fairy tales throughout the world. Although the most popular versions appeared in Charles Perrault's Histoires ou contes du temps pass ("Stories or Fables of Times Past") (1697) and the Grimms' "Fairy Tales" (1812), the story can be traced back to the story of Rhodopis, a Greek slave girl who marries the pharoah of Egypt, which Strabo recorded in the first century B.C.E. In the late nineteenth century, British follklorist Marian Roalfe Cox catalogued 345 variations of the story.

For more than two thousand years, children and adults have read and watched as Cinderella endured cruel mistreatment without complaining-and met her prince before the stroke of midnight. A Wish Your Heart Makes will trace the history of the fairy tale, emphasizing its strong ties to Walt Disney and his studio.

Major artists who illustrated the story of Cinderella range from Aubrey Beardsley, Edward Burne-Jones, and Walter Crane, to Gustave Dor , Edmund Dulac, John B. Gruelle, and Arthur Rackham. The story has been adapted to the stage many times, including the operas La Cenerentola by Giacomo Rossini and Cendrillon by Jules Massenet, the ballet by Sergei Prokofiev, and musical adaptations by Rogers and Hammerstein and Stephen Sondheim.

There have been scores of Cinderella films, beginning with a black and white short in 1907. But the most celebrated is Walt Disney's, one of his most beloved fairy tales-and the film that saved his studio, which had languished in the doldrums after the end of World War II. Years later, when a lunch guest asked Disney what his favorite piece of animation done at his studio, he replied, "I think it would be when Cinderella got her ball gown."
The book will conclude with the making of the 2015 live-action film Cinderella directed by Kenneth Branagh, including interviews with Branagh, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham-Carter, Anthony Caron-Delion, Patrick Doyle, Dante Ferretti, Derek Jacobi, Lilly James, Aline Brosh McKenna, and Chris Weitz.

Great look at the history of the story 6 avril 2015
Par Jeffrey S. Heimbuch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
George: We’ve had several really great books from Disney Publishing that have been tied into major film releases. JB Kaufman wrote the definitive book on Snow White while Charles Solomon has tackled Sleeping Beauty, Toy Story, and other animated films. Solomon has just written A Wish Your Heart Makes: From the Grimm Brothers’ Aschenputtel to Disney’s Cinderella. Based on his previous book about Sleeping Beauty, I was hoping for another great look at the history of the folktale and the animated film.

Jeff: Much like the last go-round, the book looks at the history of the story of Cinderella a little bit, before jumping in and going in-depth on the making of the film. Much like the Sleeping Beauty book, the section on the Cinderella story itself is a bit sparse; I dare say much more sparse than before. Despite the tale being old as time, there just isn’t a lot here that Solomon has to say about it. It’s not bad, but it’s just a bit disappointing for those who want to read a bit more about the story’s origins.

George: Agreed. Kaufman did a lot of research on the history of Snow White and I really would like to have seen this for Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. Still, Solomon knows his audience and a lot of people are going to pick up this book based on the live-action film. Most hardcore Disnerds are going to enjoy it, but they’ll realize that there’s a lot of ground that still needs to be covered. Of course, Solomon (Well, Disney, really) could have placed more emphasis on the original story than the new film, but the new live-action film is driving the book and the marketing.

Jeff: Granted, his research on the animated film is good, as well (15 pages for the origin story vs. 75 for the animated film). That said, again, the main reason for this book is to push the new live-action film, so Disney is going to capitalize on that. However, being as how Solomon is really good at documenting the history of animated films, I can’t complain about the information he DOES bring to the table for the original film.

George: When it comes to animation historians, especially Disney animation, there aren’t many people that are more well-respected than Solomon. I’m glad that Disney has tapped him for documenting these films. The section on the animated film is going to be the biggest reason for people to pick up the book. We follow along, almost chronologically, thought the development of the film. There’s a ton of concept artwork that leads us through the story development and the different iterations. One thing that surprised me, even though I knew about it, was Mary Blair’s influence on the film.

Jeff: Honestly, these 75 pages are probably worth the price of the book alone. Even if you have no interest in the live action film (which, honestly, you should) or the original tale, the animated history is worthwhile. like George said, you’ll definitely learn a thing or two along the way!

George: The last section of the book is dedicated to the live-action version of Cinderella. I enjoyed this section so much more than the section on Maleficent in last year’s Sleeping Beauty book. Solomon shares a lot of the background on the film, including the concept art (which is a lot of digital images that look like paintings) as well as character information and set designs. One thing I took away is that the live-action film is going to be gorgeous and (after reading the novelization) probably a very enjoyable film.

Jeff: Agreed. It just seemed much more in-depth and enjoyable than the Maleficent one. Lots of fascinating details, and it kind of made me MORE excited for the film, to be honest with you. It looks fantastic, and Kenneth Branagh seems to have really done his homework for it.

George: Wait. He had homework?!?!?! Maybe I don’t want to be a director.

Amazing book, and delivered as promised. The packaging was quite large, but the book had not wrinkles and even was better then expected.
Not happily ever after... 6 avril 2015

Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I loved this well written and attractive book - in the beginning. Loved the history of Cinderella, but particularly loved the section on Disney's Cinderella. Comments from artists and directors were insightful and enlightening. Even as a true Disney fan they made me see the movie in new and interesting ways.
But then we get to the disappointing 65 pages of the new live action Cinderella. I can only think the lack of information and visuals was perhaps due to preping the book before much actual film production. The text seems to go on ad nauseam about the philosophy and direction of the movie with way too many preproduction visuals. Where's the grit? Where are actual scenes, special effects information and visuals, the mice, the pumpkin and so much more we want from a book about the movie?
I think in an effort to get a book out to coincide with the movie we have been cheated with, and I'll repeat, 65 pages of fluff.

Very nice read. I really enjoyed the part which dealt with the making of the 1950 animated film. To me; that IS Cinderella!
Delightful Read 17 avril 2015

This book was delightfully informative and a quick read. It also provided a wealth of pictures from both Disney films. Definitely worth adding to your collection if you're a Cinderella fan!
