Entertainment Weekly has a large spread on this fall’s upcoming movies, which includes a multi-page article about Disney’s Enchanted. The synopsis from Disney reads:
A classic Disney animated fairy tale meets with the modern, live-action romantic comedy in Walt Disney Pictures’ Enchanted. Featuring an all-star cast, the film follows the beautiful princess Giselle (Amy Adams) as she is banished by an evil queen (Susan Sarandon) from her magical, musical animated land and finds herself in the gritty reality of the streets of modern-day Manhattan. Shocked by this strange new environment that doesn’t operate on a â€œhappily ever afterâ€ basis, Giselle is now adrift in a chaotic world badly in need of enchantment. But when Giselle begins to fall in love with a charmingly flawed divorce lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) who has come to her aid — even though she is already promised to a perfect fairy tale prince (James Marsden) back home â€“ she has to wonder: can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?
What’s most interesting about this movie is that only the first 11 minutes are animated. After that, Amy Adams becomes the first Disney Princess to be live-action. I can’t imagine a more adorable live-action princess than Amy Adams, or a more perfect live-action Prince Charming than Patrick Dempsey. Whether it will appeal to both kids and adults alike, we’ll have to see. Personally, I see this as being more of a romantic comedy chick-flick type of movie than traditional Disney Princess fare.
