Nowadays with the movie and music industries throwing junk at you every time you turn around, it is refreshing and rare to experience a true gem – especially one that can be enjoyed with your entire family. Well, Disney has given us this gem in two forms, the Enchanted DVD and Soundtrack.
You’d think that the fairy tale well would have dried up long ago, but Disney has managed to fill the bucket to the brim once again! Enchanted is a fairy tale story with a twist. This story is about an animated princess (Giselle) from the fairy tale land of Andalasia who is thrown (literally) into modern day Manhattan by the evil Queen Narissa.
Narissa, fearful that she will lose her throne to Giselle – whom her son Edward loves, pushes Giselle into a well in Andalasia. Through the courtesy of pure magic and imagination, Giselle eventually emerges from a manhole on a New York City street. Prince Edward, who believes that Giselle is his one true love, jumps into the well to save her. And so adventure ensues.
Meanwhile, Giselle finds herself in a world very different from her home in Andalasia. People here in the real world don’t seem to be living “happily ever after”, nor do they belive in “true love”. She soon meets Robert, a cynical divorce lawyer who surely does not believe in true love – but he eventually comes around.
I really don’t want to give any more of the story away. But I will say that in true fairy tale fashion, true love prevails. The story is very entertaining and engaging. The real world happenings are intermixed with glimpses back to Andalasia, culminating in a very exciting and satisfying fairy tale ending.
The movie itself is absolutely stunning. The animation, music and casting are perfect. Amy Adams, the actress who portrays Giselle, nails the performance. I was utterly amazed at how she becameGiselle. Her wide-eyed expressions, lovely voice, and body movements epitomize a true Disney Princess. Just watch her hand movements throughout the movie! She is exactly like an animated Princess!
I think we all could learn a lot from Giselle. Her wonderful voice, sweet personality and ever-positive attitude evoke the mindset that anything is possible when you possess the feeling of love.
