Ever since watching the Enchanted DVD, I've noticed that I randomly break out into singing songs from the movie. "That's how you knowwwwwwww...."
If you have a special little place in your heart for Disney movies (especially the oldies, like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and Cinderella), then you're bound to appreciate Enchanted.
Enchanted jumps back and forth between animation and real life, as Amy Adams' character Giselle is sent by the evil Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) from animation land to New York City, where she meets Robert (Patrick Dempsey). Of course, her cartoon love, Prince Edward (James Marsden), must find her, and goes on an adventure through New York City to do so.
While the movie is enjoyable to watch, the DVD's special features make this purchase worth it.
In "Fantasy Comes to Life," we see a three-part featurette that details all the fun parts of how the movie was made, from the songwriting, to special effects, to acting.
There's also the typical bloopers and deleted scenes, as well as a Carrie Underwood music video.
For true Disney fans, however, the best special feature includes a section where we learn what aspects of Enchanted were references to older Disney films. Once you see this, it makes you appreciate the movie that much more. That scene of Giselle brushing her hair in the mirror? Totally taken from Ariel in The Little Mermaid!
And what ever happened to the actresses who voiced Ariel in The Little Mermaid, Belle in Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas in Pocahontas? They all make appearances in Enchanted! And of course, Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews) provides her voice as narrator.
All in all, as the tag line says, Enchanted truly is a new Disney classic, with a twist.
