It was only a few months ago that people were left speechless after realising that Disney princesses didn’t have fingernails – but now another bombshell has dropped.
One savvy Disney fan has spotted something very odd about Cinderella after the company released 3D versions of their famous princesses who will star in the new Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It 2 movie.
While both versions of Cinderella share the same sweeping up-do and the same iconic blue gown, something didn’t quite sit right with her appearance.
And now a fan has finally worked out why the 3D image looks so different – Cinderella now has ears!
That’s right, 1950’s Cinderella appeared to be missing her ears during her trip to the Prince’s ball – and it’s something many people had never noticed until now.
Sharing her realisation on Twitter, the fan said: ‘There was something bothering me on Cinderella’s 3d model.
‘It’s not that I don’t like it but she somehow looked different and I didn’t know why, I just realized it’s because SHE NEVER HAD EARS IN THIS COSTUME.’
Her tweet, showing a side-by-side comparison of the new and old Cinderella characters, has racked up over 133,000 likes in just over 24 hours.
People were quick to comment on her discovery, with many sharing in her astonishment.
One said: ‘IM DYING why have I never noticed that?’
Another joked: ‘That’s why she didn’t stop when the prince was calling after her. SHE. COULDN’T. HEAR HIM.’
A third also joked: ‘Well obviously, that was back when women didn’t have ears.’

Although her ears are concealed in the scene where she meets the prince at the ball, the original Cinderella does have ears in other scenes, until she is bibbity-bobbity-boo’d by her fairy godmother…
Also joining Cinderella in Wreck-It Ralph 2, which will premiere at end of the year, are Elsa, Jasmine, Belle, Moana, Rapunzel, Mulan, and a slew of other princesses who have been given the 3D treatment.
