Mary Blair (born Mary Browne Robinson; October 21, 1911 – July 26, 1978) was an American artist, animator, and designer. She was prominent in producing art and animation for The Walt Disney Company, drawing concept art for such films as Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Song of the South and Cinderella. Blair also created character designs for enduring attractions such as Disneyland's It's a Small World, the fiestascene in El Rio del Tiempo in the Mexico pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase, and an enormous mosaic inside Disney's Contemporary Resort. Several of her illustrated children's books from the 1950s remain in print, such as I Can Fly by Ruth Krauss. Blair was inducted into the group of Disney Legends in 1991.
Cinderella is the titular protagonist of Disney's 1950 animated feature film of the same name. After the death of her mother, her father remarried believing that Cinderella "needed a mother's care." Cinderella's father died shortly after and she was forced to work as a scullery maid for her wicked stepmother, Lady Tremain and stepsister, Anastasia and Drizella.
Despite the cruelty of her jealous stepfamily, Cinderella remained kind, spirited and internally beautiful. Her faith and everlasting optimism manifested in a Fairy Godmother, whose magic served as a catalyst for Cinderella's ascent from servant to princess.
Cinderella is the second official Disney Princess, preceded by Snow White
