Behold Yourselves Some ENCHANTED Promotional Art!! [POOF, IT'S GONE!!]

Merrick here...
..with a quick look at ENCHANTED, a title we frequently hear referenced but don't know much about. It's a Disney film about an animated maiden named Giselle who is displaced from her fairy tale kingdom into the "real" (live action) world of New York City. We're confounded by Giselle's naive idealism (she sings about love & doesn't understand how couples don't always live happily ever after), and she's bewildered by a land in which animals don't talk back to her. Eventually, her fairy tale life also transitions to the real world - including her handsome prince, and an evil queen. It's got music by Alan Menken, and is directed by Kevin Lima (TARZAN). It stars Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, and Susan Sarandon. Here's a look at some proposed promotional designs for the film (with placeholder credits and possibly stand ins for the actors). Keep in mind these are all works in progress - final product may vary. NOTE the classic Disney characters in the third poster down! This could be amusing provided they're actually in the film. ENCHANTED should see release late this year. Thanks to DragonRider23 for these...

    Patrick Dempsey!

    by jimmy_009

    This MUST be good!

  • March 14, 2007, 11:06 p.m. CST

    They have a lot of nerve...

    by jimmy_009

    Putting Pinocchio, Bambi, and Dumbo on this crap. F you Disney jackasses.

  • March 14, 2007, 11:06 p.m. CST

    Jeez, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th?

    by jimmy_009

    I'm so lame.

  • March 14, 2007, 11:07 p.m. CST


    by jimmy_009

    Right on.

  • March 14, 2007, 11:08 p.m. CST

    I'm not even going to post for 6th

    by jimmy_009

    That would be retarded. And greedy.

  • March 14, 2007, 11:09 p.m. CST

    Anyways, this movie looks fantastic.

    by jimmy_009

    I'd pay double the ticket price to see Susan Sarandon making out with Patrick Dempsey.

    Where is everybody?

  • March 14, 2007, 11:11 p.m. CST

    Is this some sort of record?

    by jimmy_009

    Who keeps track of firsties?

  • March 14, 2007, 11:11 p.m. CST

    And 10 makes 10!

    I'm out.

    Eleven is Heaven

    by ElectricDreams

    Reminds me of the promotional Lilo & Stitch poster where they had all the characters looking down and giving dirty looks at Stitch. This looks like it might be fun though, a no brainer family film, will surely sell more Disney Princess merchandise!

  • March 14, 2007, 11:16 p.m. CST


    by magnetoelectric

    Susan Sarandon looks like a man in drag there. Looks like when she speaks its going to come out all Harvey Feirsstein

    Girl, Get Real!

    by kuguy3000

    Oh no you didn't! Uh huh! *snap!*

  • March 14, 2007, 11:25 p.m. CST

    the first one looks like it's for a TV movie

    by Demosthenes2

    And that's not so hot if it's the only real-people one. There just isn't much sense of character to it yet. The drawings are nice, and while I get the choice for sustained color, I don't think it works so much, but perhaps that has to do with the "works-in-progress" part.

  • March 14, 2007, 11:28 p.m. CST

    it was amusing...when they did it for LILO AND STITCH

    by s0nicdeathmonkey

    now, it's redundant.

  • March 14, 2007, 11:30 p.m. CST


    by Sir Loin

    Cinderella III? Bambi II? Oy, Disney's really milking it.

  • March 14, 2007, 11:32 p.m. CST

    Yeah, good one.

    by Allfather Starr

    Because this looks like EXACTLY the sort of film that visitors to this site will be interested in. Fuck's sake.

    "The 10th Kingdom"

    by fractureJonze

    Well, GOOGLE it already... Sheesh. Looks like a ripoff to me!

  • March 14, 2007, 11:59 p.m. CST


    by fractureJonze

    Maybe ripoff is too strong a word, but its the first thing I thought of when I saw it:

    NEW RULE: Susan Sarandon is a total piece of ass!

    by Bill Maher

    Man is she HOT! I don't care if she's older than my mom, I'd still love to pound Sarandon balls deep.

    amy adams

    by BadMrWonka

    is ridiculously in, like, it doesn't even make sense...I would ALMOST give up on Jenna Fischer for her....almost...

  • March 15, 2007, 12:43 a.m. CST

    A friend of mine saw this...

    by Bungion Boy

    and despite Amy Adams being very adorable and charming, he said that this really isn't any smarter or funnier than your average Disney live action film. He likened it to Princess Diaries. I had high hopes for this. It's a cute idea, (if not a good one) and I thought Amy could carry it. Now my friend saw a really really rough cut with hardly any finished animation, but he said he didn't see a lot of promise of improvement.

    fairy tales are for white girls

    by iwontwin

  • March 15, 2007, 4:07 a.m. CST


    by council estate scumbag

    oi leave it OUT! dont bring that race shit here pal. My sister's a white girl from the estate and she aint it into that princess fairy tale shit. she's into stealing mobile phones and getting hit by the lads on the estate. so take that race shit and f**k your mama with it. shit. if my best mate heard that shit he'd fucking kick your head in and parade your bloodied face around our school. and guess what sunshine. he's black. he wont stand for that divisive shit either. on the estate we whites and blacks, and asians and everything all live together like human fucking beings. not this divisive crap you're tryna foister on us.

    Looks hardcore 80's

    by Power_Girl

    The first poster looks like it was made in the 80's...seriously it has an 80's vibe to it. Anyone else feel this?

  • March 15, 2007, 4:35 a.m. CST

    susan sarandon

    by council estate scumbag

    if iwas 80 years older i'd do susan sarandon. i'd take out my dentures and wine and dine her. take her to bingo up in camden, then to a pharmacy to get our old people pills, then on the 274 to annoy all the teenagers and tell them to turn their fucking music down and say how great world war 1 was and how queen victoria had a fine arse, athen i'd take her to the old folks home up in hackney marshes and try to fuck, but being so old wont be able to get it up. so buy some viagra, try to fuck her again but die of a massive heart attack. she could then sell my rotting corpse and buy another sofa with it from kmart or whatever shit fucking superstore you guys have over in the states.

    Cool World

    by BannedOnTheRun

    Maybe it wasn't the worst movie ever made, but I still haven't seen one that sucked harder.

  • March 15, 2007, 4:39 a.m. CST

    bakshi should've directed this

    by council estate scumbag

    he would've brought a new spin on it and it woulda returned him to his 70's glory days and wipe from our minds the sizzling shitfest that was cool world. cozza cool world he is likened to that nonce Don Bluth. he should be shot for crimes against animation and animators.

    "Dreams Come True in a City That Never Sleeps"

    ... is a great tagline for a porno film.

    I think this should be renamed to...

    Ain't it Gay News. This is the worst news ever, nothing cool about it whatsoever.

  • March 15, 2007, 5:16 a.m. CST

    Floyd_Dylan i agree

    by council estate scumbag

    out of all the upcomin disney shit thi is the one i dont give a shit about. AICN should do a thing on ratatoulle or WALLE- heck even rapunzel, at least that has Glen Keane driving it arse. he's the fuckin bollocks! all the gay people in the next estate are the only ones who'll get a fucking stiffy for this 'bentchanted' film. bring on some real news, big ginger geezer.

  • March 15, 2007, 5:23 a.m. CST

    Susan Sarandon looks exactly like...

    It was my turn.

  • March 15, 2007, 7:47 a.m. CST

    Zanadu my blighty arse

    by council estate scumbag

    the smell of that nonce Don Bluth is everywhere on this shitfest of a film. i hope this flops bigger the funbags on my 25 stone mama when she changes direction too quickly and knocks some poor c**t out with them in the process. Death to Bluth. Fucking nonce.

  • March 15, 2007, 7:51 a.m. CST


    by council estate scumbag

    i think you may be right on that Angelica Houston-Sarandon shit, son. I'd have to bang old Angelica too then. That witch-look thing she's got going on goes down a storm for me. she'd f**k you up bad and mash up my cojones, geeza. she's a nasty bitch!

    But, it's got the fairy tale/fantasy angle, so I guess it gets a pass as a mention.

  • March 15, 2007, 10:06 a.m. CST

    Oh, and

    by BizarroJerry

    Can we stop the "this isn't COOL" messages. This site has become a general movie site focusing mostly on "Cool" movies, but not solely on them. Move on, people. Funny how much we're discussing this considering the uncool nature of it, though.

  • March 15, 2007, 10:08 a.m. CST

    chick flick? u 'avin' a larf, son

    by council estate scumbag

    no birds round my way would sit through two hours of this shit. this is bollocks. its aimed at two year old blind girls with cerebal palsy and ADHD. this film is a shitfest delux with super-sized salad. And whats more James Baxter is attachd to this shite. but hell, its the only 2d thing going around at the mo. its a shitty world we live in. just look at that poor cunt Andreas Deja. he ended up working on the biggest pile of steaming donkey crap- bambi 2- faline's revenge or whatever the tagline was. faggot of the forest or some shit. shit times for all, mate

  • March 15, 2007, 10:15 a.m. CST


    by council estate scumbag

    i know where ya comin' from, fella. too much empahasis on the "Cool". i aint chattin about that bollocks though, son. i'm fucked off about this film being generally shit- beyond shit, walrus and blue whale shit mixed together and served on my grandmas rotting pumpkin fun bags. except they aint so much fun. fuck Don Bluth wouldn't touch this and he's the biggest cunt out there. I hope that faggot cunt has retired or died. he tried to fuck animation in its asshole and wreck it for everyone. thats how shit i think this'll be. trust me. i speak from the streets

    by Doctor_Sin

    But dear god - does that mean each and every single film that will ever get lensed must be touted on this website as "Look at the awesome posters!" or "Sneak footage on YouTube!" or "Look at these stills before they're gone!"<p>There could have been a simple "Here's a bunch of Disney shit" headline and list upcoming things that no one here cares about.<p>Ain't it Cool News used to be a haven for those who wanted to hear about cult, genre, indie, and plain old nerd movies. Now, every Underdog and Princess Diaries sequel gets a bold headline with a "spoiler" tag.<p>Not only is this "not cool," it sounds like a fucking shit direct-to-video (or direct-to-cable) release. Why is this even here?<p>I'm glad it is, though. It's fun to rip into crap films.
