Giselle, a princess cast out of the enchanted land of Andalasia, moves her family from the Big Apple to the suburbs in the hopes of finding their “happily ever after.” She utilises magic on the spur of the moment to create a perfect life, only to learn that magic is unpredictable and that one’s perception of the world determines their level of happiness.


Watch as Giselle (Amy Adams) is whisked away from the animated paradise of Andalasia to the concrete jungle of Manhattan while she waits for the kiss of true love from Prince Edward (James Marsden), who is brave but a little dimwitted. She falls in love with Robert, a cynical divorce attorney played by Patrick Dempsey. True love wins out in the end and everyone lives happily ever after, despite the nefarious schemes of Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon).
The sequel, Disenchanted, is released ten years later. Sofia, a baby girl, was a gift from God to Robert and Giselle, and while Morgan (Gabriella Baldacchino), Robert’s daughter from a previous marriage, is now 16 years old, Robert and Giselle has been blessed with a new daughter. Giselle believes that it is time to give their lives a boost, and she proposes that they relocate to the suburbs, much to Morgan’s chagrin.

Morgan’s worst fears were realised when she moved to Monroeville; she was made to feel like an outcast at her new school, and Robert was forced to endure a soul-crushing commute into the city. Giselle is not exactly welcomed with open arms by the haughty members of the town council, led by the condescending Malvina and included Rosaleen and Ruby.

Giselle employs a little bit of magic to put things right, but instead, she manages to make everything go wrong, putting Andalasia and her good nature in jeopardy. There is a ball, a magical war for the kingdom, a clock that stops just before it makes the final midnight chime, and a sleeping princess, and everything works out perfectly in the end.
Everything you’d expect to see, from the music to the glittering costumes to the seamless transitions from animated to live-action sequences, is there. Adams is lovely, and McDreamy is still as dreamy as ever with crinkly eyes that are even more wonderful now that they show signs of wear and tear. The talking scroll (Alan Tudyk) provided some welcome laughs.

Rating: 3 out of 5.
