No one dare say that this wasn’t a perfect film. It is the only version of this rags-to-riches story that had me humming a tune by the films end. It also had a diverse cast which was daring for the story it was telling as well as more inviting. It’s tough for a little girl to watch these Disney stories and see few representations of themselves and this version gave them visibility while also delivering a truly entertaining film. Whitney Houston’s Fairy Godmother is the performance who defines the role for me and the one I remember. It’s a fantastically fun film and it’s instilled a sense of magic into it where others have not.
