Disney has been busy with remaking and re-releasing all sorts of classic titles from their catalogue. This, of course, includes their spree of live-action remakes such as the upcoming movie Snow White. Now, however, Disney is presenting fans with a brand-new version of Cinderella.
Fortunately, fans will be pleased to know this isn’t a new adaptation of the classic story. Rather, the Walt Disney Studios Restoration and Preservation Team has painstakingly restored the original 1950 animated film in 4K. Now fans can experience the movie with better visual clarity than ever before.
An example of this new restoration can be seen below via Twitter:
This version is now able to be streamed on Disney’s streaming service. It’s certainly nice to see that Disney still offers some level of appreciation for their animated classics, especially enough to have them properly restored and re-released. Especially at a time when so many fans seem to be divided over the new iterations that have been created in live-action.
Interestingly, the above tweet also notes that the Walt Disney Studios Restoration and Preservation Team is also “currently working on a restoration of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” So, for those fans who aren’t happy with the upcoming live-action iteration, it looks like you’ll at least be able to watch the original film in proper 4K resolution.
Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any additional Disney updates as we have them. For now, fans can buy the newly-restored 4K version of Cinderella on 4K UHD or stream the film via Disney Plus. Let’s hope they continue this streak and deliver fans some equally great restorations of their other classics. Especially now that Disney holds more titles than ever before with some of their acquisitions, including the entirety of the Fox library. There’s certainly plenty to choose from.
