Enchanted On DVD Today
An acclaimed new Disney classic with a hilarious twist casts a heartwarming spell when ENCHANTED comes to stunning Blu-ray High Definition and DVD on March 18 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. Shining a witty and charming new light on a beloved genre, ENCHANTED is a modern day musical fairytale filled with uproarious surprises that the entire family will enjoy.
Both the Blu-ray Disc and DVD boast a vast kingdom of entertaining bonus features, including the trivia based BD-Java feature "The D-Files" available only on Blu-ray Disc.
ENCHANTED contains vfx from Tippett Studio along with 2D-animated bookends from James Baxter Animation.
ENCHANTED cleverly combines a heartfelt romance with a gentle spoof of Disney films of the past as an animated heroine from a far away kingdom finds herself transformed into a real live woman in bustling New York City.
Academy Award nominee Amy Adams (2005 nominee for Best Supporting Actress; JUNEBUG) leads an all-star cast as the lovely Giselle, a storybook princess-to-be lost in the Big Apple.
Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon (1996 winner for Best Actress in a Leading Role; DEAD MAN WALKING) plays the evil sorceress Narissa who exiles Giselle from her fairytale kingdom and James Marsden (HAIRSPRAY) is her handsome prince.
Patrick Dempsey (GREY'S ANATOMY) is a contemporary knight in shining armor and Tony Award winner Idina Menzel (2004 winner for Best Leading Actress in a Musical; WICKED) is his girlfriend Nancy who suspects Giselle might just be a little too good to be true.
The film features dazzling animation sequences, spectacular costumes and unforgettable songs by award winning composers Alan Menken (ALADDIN, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST) and Stephen Schwartz (POCAHONTAS, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME).
ENCHANTED begins in the animated fairytale land of Andalasia where the charming and perky Giselle (Amy Adams) instantly captures the heart of the dashing Prince Edward (James Marsden).
Desperate to keep the young lovers apart in order to preserve her control of the throne, the prince's evil mother Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) transports Giselle from her whimsical homeland to the worst place she can think of -- Times Square.
Suddenly transformed from animated beauty into flesh and blood girl, the comely lass twirls her way through the urban jungle, blissfully unaware that dreams don't always come true.
Rescued from the streets by divorce lawyer Robert (Patrick Dempsey), who suspects she'd be better off in Bellevue, and pursued by Edward, who finds that a sword is useless against a modern day dragon -- er, make that city bus -- the eternally optimistic Giselle starts to wonder if "happily ever after" is what she really wants.
