What was the plot of Enchanted?
Enchanted pulled stereotypical Disney Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) out of her animated storybook universe and into real-world New York City, where she meets disillusioned divorce lawyer Robert (Dempsey) and his daughter Morgan (Rachel Covey). Meanwhile, Giselle’s betrothed Prince Edward (James Marsden) follows her into the real-world to rescue her, with the Evil Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) and her conniving henchman Nathaniel (Timothy Spall) in hot pursuit to make sure Giselle never returns.
