On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies, the occasional TV show, and, once in a blue moon, another podcast, in full, spoiler-filled detail. Below, Slate culture editor Dan Kois and Slate words correspondent Katy Waldman discuss Kenneth Branagh’s new live-action Cinderella. How does the movie play on its overly familiar heritage? Does it work to have a fairy-tale movie in 2015 that doesn’t ever get too dark in its themes? And what to make of the Frozen short that precedes the film?
Listen to them discuss these and other questions below. You can also check out past Spoiler Specials in our archive, and you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Note: As the title indicates, each installment contains spoilers galore.
