List Criteria: Movies with a Cinderella princess and/or riches-to-rags-to-riches story

A list of the best Cinderella movies, ranked best to worst. These types of movies focus on the famous rags to riches Cinderella story: A diamond in the rough is ultimately discovered and put in her proper place. This theme is used widely to this day with its various topes and allusions permeating Hollywood films. Some of the best Cinderella movies listed here feature wonderful renditions of the tale of one of Disney's best princesses ever. Vote for your favorites and re-rank this list your way, too.

The movies on this list closely follow the Cinderella story. While not all of these movies are for kids, many of them are, and Cinderella is without doubt a favorite fairy tale among young girls. There is a reason Cinderella is often cited as one of Disney's best animated films.

Cinderella is also a favorite fairy tale among adults and older teens, which explains why movies like 'Ever After' and 'Ella Enchanted' are so often included among the great Cinderella films. Disagree? Think that Cinderella is one of the Disney princesses that make terrible role models? Fine, but you cannot deny the timeless story's enduring popularity.
