This fairytale princess is about to meet a real Prince Charming. Over actresses auditioned for the role of Giselle. Enchanted is a American musical fantasy romantic comedy film, produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Sonnenfeld and Josephson Entertainment. Written by Bill Kelly and directed by Kevin Lima, the film stars Amy Adams, Giselle, a young woman, dreams of meeting a prince and experiencing a "happy ever after.
Lima tried to "cram every single piece of Disney iconic imagery" that he could into the first ten minutes, which were done in traditional cel animation in contrast to computer-generated 3-D animation as a tribute to past Disney fairy tale films such as Sleeping BeautyCinderellaand Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This film, although quite different in terms of plot from any previous Disney film, also contained obvious homages to other Disney films of the distant past, such as Old YellerThe Shaggy DogSwiss Family RobinsonBon Voyage!
As most of Disney's cel animation artists were laid off after the computer graphics boom of the late s,  the 13 minutes of animation were not done in-house but by the independent Pasadena -based company James Baxter Animation, which was started by noted lead animator James Baxter. Baxter's team decided to use Art Nouveau as a starting point.
For Giselle, the hand-drawn animated character had to be "a cross between Amy Adams and a classic Disney princess. And not a caricature. And the costumes had to align closely to the live-action design. He also shot some live-action footage of Amy Adams as Giselle for the animators to use as reference, which also allowed the physical movement of the character to match in both worlds.
Test scenes completed by the animators were shown to the actors, allowing them to see how their animated selves would move. Principal photography began in April and ended in July However, shooting in New York became problematic as it was in a "constant state of new stores, scaffolding and renovation".
Because of the difficulties in controlling the crowd while filming in Times Squaregeneral pedestrians were featured in the scene with hired extras placed in the immediate foreground.
The five-minute scene took 17 days to finish due to the changing weather, which allowed only seven sunny days for the scene to be filmed.
Giselle's wedding dress on display at El Capitan Theatre. To create the costumes, May spent one year in pre-production working with animators and her costume department of 20 people, while she contracted with five outside costume shops in Los Angeles and New York City.
Her wedding dress at the beginning of the film directly contrasts her modern gown at the end of the film. May's aim was to try "not to lose Marsden in the craziness of the outfit Enchanted soundtrack The film's score was written by accomplished songwriter and composer Alan Menkenwho has worked on a number of Disney films previously.
Fellow composer Stephen Schwartz wrote the lyrics for six songs, also composed by Menken.

Menken became involved with the film in the early stages of the film's development and invited Schwartz to resume their collaboration. Schwartz found that it was easier to justify situations in which the characters would burst into songs in Enchanted than in other live-action musicals as its concept "allowed the characters to sing in a way that was completely integral to the plot of the story.
The first song played in the film, "True Love's Kiss", was written to be "a send-up of, and an homage to, the style of those Disney animated features", namely, "I'm Wishing" Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and " A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes " Cinderelladuring which Disney heroines sing about the joy of being loved.
The title song, "Enchanted," a duet featuring Idina Menzel and James Marsdenwas the only song of Menken's and Schwartz's authorship and composition that was deleted from the movie. These shots involved virtual sets, environmental effects and CG characters that performed alongside real actors, namely the animated animals during the "Happy Working Song" sequence, Pip and the Narissa dragon during the live-action portions of the film.
CIS Hollywood was responsible for 36 visual effects shots, which primarily dealt with wire removals and composites. Reel FX Creative Studios did four visual effects shots involving the pop-up book page-turn transitions while Weta Digital did two.
The real animals captured on film aided Tippett Studio in creating CG rats and pigeons, which gave dynamic performances such as having pigeons that carried brooms in their beaks and rats that scrubbed with toothbrushes. On the other hand, all the cockroaches were CG characters.
