Cinematic historical past is crammed with characters that some followers imagine ought to have ended up collectively, however did not, from Harry and Hermione to Katniss and Gale. For some purpose, be it destiny, poor decision-making, the attract of red hair or self-loathing, that had been meant to be by no means had been. There are, after all, followers on either side of those debates that may argue their workforce to the bitter finish. One such couple is Giselle and Prince Edward from Disney’s fashionable fairy story, Enchanted. A decade after the movie, there are those that are nonetheless Staff Edward (not that Edward), however Enchanted‘s director, Kevin Lima, didn’t mince phrases when explaining what Giselle and Edward did not belong collectively, saying:
They’re completely unsuitable. As a result of it’s a few girl who grows previous the small world the place she got here from and turns into a extra absolutely fashioned individual. So she will’t keep the place she was, she will’t get married to the individual she met that she determined to marry in a single day.
Kevin Lima makes a fantastic level. Actual life is not a fairy story. You do not get the idealized prince or princess that makes for thus many fortunately ever after tales. For Giselle, as different Disney princesses have discovered, deciding to marry an individual that you’ve got recognized for a single day is a daring technique that rarely pays off. You would possibly suppose you continue to love that boy/woman from center college, however you’ve got grown, and who is aware of, he/she would possibly eat people now. Private progress is essential to who you find yourself with. Giselle did not want the prince/the knight in shining armor anymore as a result of she wasn’t a damsel in misery by that time. She had grown and skilled new individuals and locations. Shifting out of your consolation zone adjustments the way you see your self and the world, and in the end, adjustments what your wants are. Giselle could not return to the simplistic, fairy story life or the fairy story prince.
The Enchanted director went on to precise to Entertainment Weekly how Giselle does not hand over who she is to be with Robert, however is ready to keep her purity and pleasure whereas changing into a extra complicated, fully-formed individual. So whereas some followers could ceaselessly ship Giselle and Edward, the person behind Enchanted has put his foot down on the matter. After all, these days fortunately ever after is commonly, ‘fortunately ever after….until next time‘. Certainly it seems that over a decade after its launch, Enchanted is poised to get a sequel, aptly titled, Disenchanted. We have not heard a lot about the sequel just lately, and it was initially supposed to start out capturing this summer season for a 2018 launch date. Amy Adams is a bigger name than ever, and the unique film has gathered fairly the fanbase over time, so I’d guess that we’ll be returning to Andalasia ultimately.
