Cinderella is a classic fairy tale first published by Charles Perrault in 1697 and popularized by the 1950 Disney film adaption. Other variants of the tale include "Cenerentola" by Giambattista Basile, the work Perrault originally based his story on, and "Aschenputtel", published by the Brothers Grimm in 1812.

The story and characters are both popular for fairy tale fusions and crossovers.
