Giselle

Giselle Philip is the main protagonist of Disney's 2007 animated/live-action film Enchanted and its 2022 sequel Disenchanted. Her voice and live action portrayal were performed by American actress Amy Adams, who also played Superman's love-intrest Lois Lane in the DC Extended Universe films.

At the beginning of the film, her personality and mannerisms were representative of the Disney Princess stereotype. Because she lives in the perfect utopian fantasy world of Andalasia, she has barely felt emotions that are rare to the land such as frustration and anger, which, of course, are common on Earth. She dreams of having her own Prince Charming, whom she will fall in love with and live happily ever after. She also loves animals, who help her both in Andalasia and on Earth. When she comes to New York City, her experiences in Andalasia reveal her to be blind and naïve to the complexity of Earth. She becomes rather scared, distressed, and confused during her first night in New York City. Her naivety also frustrates Robert, who had agreed to let her stay with him until Edward, her dream prince from Andalasia, comes for her. However, throughout the film, her experiences on Earth with Robert open her up to a more complex world she had never experienced in Andalasia and introduce her to emotions such as anger and sadness, and despite the frustrations that she unintentionally causes Robert, she is just as beautiful in personality as her appearance. She also grows into a mother figure for Robert's daughter, Morgan. Despite maturing over the course of the film (in no small part due to Robert's influence), she still retains her innocence, optimism, and kind nature. However, she also proves herself to be as intelligent as Robert himself. Hailing from the fictional kingdom of Andalasia, Giselle displays similar traits to the Disney Princesses; Lima describes her as "about 80% Snow White, with some traits borrowed from Cinderella and Aurora... although her spunky attitude comes from Ariel a.k.a. The Little Mermaid." She is "eternally optimistic and romantic" but is also "very independent and true to her convictions". In the climax of the film, Giselle is shown to be brave and courageous and became protective towards Robert during the battle against Queen Narissa in her dragon form.[1]
