Judging by this brilliant movie trailer mashup of "Cinderella" and "Carrie," we're starting to think that Cinderella may actually be Carrie. Which doesn't help the Disney character's image at all, but it sure explains some things.
Both lived an isolated existence, locked away by nefarious women. Both ultimately tap into magic to turn their lives around. Granted, Carrie's high school dance comes to a slightly different conclusion than Cinderella's regal ball, but when black magic is involved, apparently anything is possible.
