The enduring tale of Cinderella comes to life as never before in The Slipper and the Rose, and this Oscar-nominated musical is set for its first ever high-definition UK Blu-ray release.

Featuring an all-star cast including Richard Chamberlain (Dr Kildare), Gemma Craven (The Hole) and Annette Crosbie (Dad’s Army), this much-loved British musical, directed by Bryan Forbes (Chaplin) is on Blu-ray 20th November 2017, complete with a host of fantastic extras including brand new interviews with Annette Crosbie and Rosalind Ayres.

The King of Euphrania is growing increasingly troubled that his son and heir, Prince Edward, has not yet taken a wife. And so a plan is hatched, to hold a royal ball and invite every princess in the land, despite the Prince’s protests. Meanwhile Cinderella lives in misery, her father has died and her wicked stepmother has made her the house servant. Help is at hand however with the arrival of her fairy godmother and a magical invitation to the ball.

Scoring an impressive audience score of 90 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, The Slipper and The Rose is the perfect family film for Christmas and beyond.
