Enchanted (2007 Movie)

“Enchanted” is a 2007 live-action/animated musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Pictures. Directed by Kevin Lima, the movie combines traditional animation and live-action sequences to tell the story of a fairy tale princess who is transported to modern-day New York City.

As Giselle tries to adapt to the real world and find her true love, she disrupts Robert’s life and relationships.
