ComingSoon.net talked exclusively to director Kevin Lima and executive producer Chris Chase about the new Enchanted DVD and Blu-ray Disc, now in stores. Both the Blu-ray Disc and DVD boast a vast kingdom of entertaining bonus features, including the trivia based BD-Java feature “The D-Files,” available only on Blu-ray Disc.
Enchanted begins in the animated fairytale land of Andalasia where the charming and perky Giselle (Amy Adams) instantly captures the heart of the dashing Prince Edward (James Marsden). Desperate to keep the young lovers apart in order to preserve her control of the throne, the prince’s evil mother Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) transports Giselle from her whimsical homeland to the worst place she can think ofTimes Square. Suddenly transformed from animated beauty into flesh and blood girl, the comely lass twirls her way through the urban jungle, blissfully unaware that dreams don’t always come true. Rescued from the streets by divorce lawyer Robert (Patrick Dempsey), who suspects she’d be better off in Bellevue, and pursued by Edward, who finds that a sword is useless against a modern day dragoner, make that city busthe eternally optimistic Giselle starts to wonder if “happily ever after” is what she really wants.
The DVD’s bonus features include: “Pip’s Predicament: A Pop-UP Adventure,” a new short-magical pop-up, storybook style; “Fantasy Comes to Life,” with three behind-the-scenes featurettes; Deleted Scenes featuring intros by Lima; and Bloopers. The Blu-ray Disc contains all of the above, plus: “The D-Files,” which rewards players who spot the witty hidden references to classic Disney films by showing the original reference. High scoring players are treated to three special videos: “So Close,” “Making Ever Ever After” and “True Love’s Kiss.”
