That's how you know ~

That's how you know ~ *singing tone*

That sentence is stuck on my head after watching Enchanted by Disney in GSC at Mid Valley. Jasmine, Victoria, Jun Pei, Hannah, Mabel and I hanged out together today. At first we decided to watch Alvin & the Chipmunks but it was fully booked. Mabel had to join us to watch the movie again (too bad for ya XP). The story is a mixture of Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. The animation art style is more like The little Mermaid cartoon.


The movie started with a short clip of cartoon. Princess Giselle lives in a forest dreams that she would one day meet her prince charming and have their true loves kiss. At the same time, Prince Edward was hunting down ogres with his servant Nathaniel and heard her singing voice. He ran towards to Giselles house. Nathaniel released the ogre to stop the prince from meeting the princess. Just like the typical fairytale story where singing comes in, saving the princess and all those stuff. Oh...and not to mention she has good relationship with the animals exactly like any other old disney princess. Edward saves Giselle and decided to get married the next day. Prince Edward's step mother, Queen Narcissa is afraid that Giselle will steal her throne. Just before Giselles's wedding, Queen Narcissa disguised as an old lady, tricks her going to the wishing well and pushes her to a place where there are no happily ever after, New York City.

She got into New York City through a pothole! (ewww.......) There, she met Robert and his daughter, Morgan and learned many things of the real world. Robert had someone he wants to marry who is Nancy after his wife left him many years ago. Giselle believed that meeting someone for just a day and sings like her (lol!) will live happily ever after. But in reality, as what Robert told her, life is not as easy as that. You don't get married with someone the next day just because you love him at first sight. Before marriage, she should date with Edward to understand and know him better.

And so......... Prince Edward along with Giselles's pet friend, Pip (chipmunk) jumped into the well to save his princess along with Nathaniel who is actually serving Queen Narcissa. He acted strangely treating the bus as the monster, stabbed the bus from the top which almost killed an old lady inside. Pip can no longer speak out like how he talk in the starting animation. He can only make squiky sounds just like a real chipmunk. Giselle slowly gets angry, frustrated and thinks differently about true love. She started to have some feelings towards Robert. Edward finally found her and want to bring her back to Andalasia (their world).

After Narcissa failed to kill Giselle several times using the poison apple, the evil queen decided to come over to the real world to kill Giselle herself. The queen arrives and head to the ball. Nancy and Robert have arrived at the ball as Giselle and Edward make their entrance. They switched their partners to dance. At the end of the dance, Edward and Giselle plans to leave and he goes to get her wrap. The old hag appears and offer a apple to her to make her forget all the unhappy moments she felt. She bites the apple and falls asleep. OK....the cliche part.

The only way to save her is to receive her true loves kiss before midnight. Edward kissed her several times but failed to wake her up. Robert knows that he is the one and kissed her. She woke up and kissed him back. Narcissa gets furious and turns into a dragon having Robert in hand. Giselle chases Narcissa up the top of the building. Pip helped save Robert by standing on Narcissa's hand to put more weight. The pole couldn't stand the heavy weight and broke. Narcissa falls to her death. (pretty easy death eh......)

In the future, Edward and Nancy went back to Andalasia and get married (you will see them in cartoon characters). Giselle opened her own fashion boutique with her animal friends helping her make dresses. Nathaniel at his book signing about his life and then Pips book signing about his time in New York City in Andalasia. The last part is of Robert, Giselle, and Morgan in the apartment having fun and living happily ever after.

This is my first post and yet i write so much about the movie. Oh well......that's all for the spoilers. Until next time ^_^
