Fifteen years after her happily ever after, Giselle questions her happiness, inadvertently turning the lives of those in the real world and Andalasia upside down in the process.

It is the sequel to the 2007 film Enchanted.

Unlike its predecessor, the film received mixed reviews from critics, who mostly praised Adams' performance.


Nina (Age 10) - ★★★★★

"I love Disenchanted.

I would give 5 stars to it.

I think it is lovely and dramatic.

I love the ending because it is just sooo intense and dramatic.

It is also a little bit humorous at points which I quite like .

I would give 4 stars for funny because it didn’t have humour all the time.

4 stars for dramatic because only certain parts were dramatic.

But however I shall give 5 stars or over in general.

I shall say watch Enchanted first then Disenchanted.

You can watch both films now on Disney+

Overall it is a very good movie for all the family."

There's plenty of Disney family comedies out there but you can't beat the Toy Story trilogy. For more princes and princesses though check out Aladdin and even Idina Menzel in Frozen. Non-Disney you can't go wrong with Shrek movies. Meanwhile the original Enchanted is worth a watch as is Amy Adams star making turn in Catch Me If You Can. A little less successful from the writers is The Smurfs which similarly merges animation and live-action.
