Giselle an isolated princess is sent by an evil queen to the big city where she meets lawyer Robert and his daughter Morgan. She knows her love Edward will come find her but before he does starts to fall for Robert.
This was not very good, I know it’s popular but I didn’t really find it that interesting. I really liked it when it started with the adorable cartoon style, then it went to live action and it was all a little bit much, too over the top dramatic.
I loved how free spirited Giselle was though, she enchanted the people around her with how unusual she was. I liked the dresses that she made out of anything in the house, they were creative, I also liked her connection with Morgan who needed a mother and found one in her.
I didn’t really like the villain, the prince or the evil guy that was hunting her down. The chipmunk abuse was awful and not nice to see. The things that they were doing to trick and capture Giselle were a bit odd and pointless. I did like the evil dragon the villain transformed into, it was interesting and had really pretty colours, she was fierce.
You could clearly and blatantly see all the other fairy tale movies used for the villain in how to trick Giselle. Giselle characters transformation was interesting as she grew so much in a short time and she learnt to defend herself.
The movie was okay and the ending was really cute. I like the originality of it and that it’s a mix of stories and a bit of both live and cartoon. I wasn’t a major fan of the movie, it was so strange and unusual. A lot of the story was over the top and unnecessary and tacky too.
