Enchanted Background

Check out the wonderful post by Rob Richards over at Animated Backgrounds. The artwork featured is from the film Enchanted and includes the well known storybook opening. It was just one of the hundreds of references made in this 2007 film to older classic Disney movies.

Out of the film's 107 minutes of running time, ten of the approximately 13 minutes of animation are at the beginning of the film. [Director Kevin] 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 as a tribute to past Disney fairy tale films such as Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  Source: Wikipedia

  1. I don't know about anyone else, but upon first sight, Gisele's dress looked to me like Jennifer Connelly's ball gown in "Labyrinth." :)
