Just for the record, Idina Menzel did not sing Let It Go in the film Enchanted.
Amy Adams appeared in Enchanted as the princess that has been ostracized to the actual world by black magic. She plays a remarkable role in the movie and is her usual bubbly self.
Furthermore, Idina Menzel does not sing the song Let It Go in this movie. The pressure was there right from the beginning for Idina not to sing in the movie.
Meanwhile, Giselle, the princess played by Amy appears to wear a dress that is made from a hanging piece of cloth. Both Amy Adams and Idina Menzel played their respective parts with passion and commitment but the main thing is that Idina alone was not allowed to fully express herself.
And there is the evil witch with her crooked teeth and ugly face not to mention the dragon with its fire breathing capabilities. By the way, the possibilities of an Enchanted 2 may not be that far off on the horizon.
The fact that here in the form of Enchanted you have a Disney film that breaks the mold of all previous Disney films is a cause worth celebrating.
The animated movie was a nostrum for the deconstructionist generation that was fed up with the cynical and unnatural attitude of the 21st century where everything is a simulacrum.
It introduced romance and good old fashioned love and affection into the equation of a fast food commercial supermarket culture. And this was a laudable achievement.
A prince that carries a princess in his arms is so clichéd yet this movie makes it look so natural and lovely in all its many splendored beauty.
The movie is a mixture of Gone with the Wind and The Sound of Music. It is indeed Disney at its best and speaks volumes about the founder’s real intentions which were solid entertainment and true fun.
Yet the fact remains that Idina was dismissed from her usual job of warbling out those high notes. She had to play second fiddle which was just not fair to a lady of her caliber.
