14 'Cinderella' Memes and Reactions That Sum Up the Amazon Movie

The new Cinderella movie reimagines the story in the same traditional setting, but with a modern narrative twist. This has had mixed reviews thus far, with some wishing for their favorite adaptations of the past.

Twitter has been awash with memes, images and comments about the movie, both good and bad.

While some have praised performances and the feminist take on the story, others have been a little more critical of the presence of actors like James Corden, and willed for the return of other adaptations.

There have been a number of live-action adaptations of Cinderella, the most famous being the 2015 film starring Lily James and Richard Madden, as well as the 1997 classic starring Brandy Norwood and Whitney Houston, based on the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.

The new version is a jukebox musical, meaning it takes much of its music from pre-released songs such as Madonna's "Material Girl", "Rhythm Nation" by Janet Jackson and Ed Sheeran's "Perfect".

The movie has garnered a great many memes over the past few days - we've put together some of our favorites from the good, the bad and the ugly.
