Enchanted revamps Disney magic

Since the new millennium, the world of Disney has consisted of CGI films and generally unmemorable cartoons. For a long while it seemed as if all hope for Disney fans was lost. However, with their newest fairytale, Disney has regained its fame.

Enchanted, the light-hearted and comedic fantasy film, has attracted audiences of all ages by revamping the Disney name. Complete with clever musical numbers and a handsome prince with shoulder pads, Enchanted has given a new twist on classic fantasies.

Because of Morgan’s absolute certainty of Giselle’s story, Robert allows her to stay with them ? later a problem, as Robert is engaged.

After several hilarious musical numbers, one including the vermin of New York City cleaning Robert’s apartment, Giselle is reunited with Prince Edward after he travels to New York City himself to rescue her. However, Giselle finds that she may have fallen in love with the wrong prince.

The big climax takes place at a ball; Queen Narissa also has been tracking Giselle through New York City and she discovers the two, along with Robert and his fianc
