The Fairy Godmother helped Cinderella turn into a princess for her night at the ball. This character appeared when Cinderella needed hope the most, and with her magic wand created the perfect evening. She turned Cinderella's animal friends into a coachman, a footman, and horses to pull the carriage.
Then she magically created a beautiful white ball gown for Cinderella, along with two enchanted glass slippers custom made for her small feet. However, this enchantment came with the warning that it would end exactly at midnight, with the carriage turning back into a pumpkin, and Cinderella and her animals being restored to their true selves.
