    'Tarzan' Man 'Enchanted' at Disney- Zap2it.com- 5/26/05

    LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com)- After flirtatious with a number of A-list directors, Walt Disney Pictures is entrusting Kevin Lima with the live-action/CGI fairy tale "Enchanted."
    Lima, who made big bucks for Disney with "Tarzan" and not-so-big-bucks for the company with "102 Dalmatians," is in place to direct the project, which begins in an animated fairy tale world, where a lower caste woman falls in love with a handsome prince and is somehow sent to the live-action world of New York City by the kingdom's evil queen.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jon Turtletaub ("National Treasure") and Adam Shankman ("The Pacifier") were attached to the project at various points. Bill Kelly ("Blast from the Past") wrote the original script, as well as the latest draft.

    Director Is Enchanted- Empire Online- 5/27/05

    Tarzan director Kevin Lima signs on for Disney fairy tale

    Tarzan and 102 Dalmatians director Kevin Lima is in familiar territory, as he takes on the new Disney live action/CG blend Enchanted.

    The tale begins in the animated, love-filled world of Andalasia where soon-to-be-princess Giselle, who is likely to be feisty and beautiful in equal amounts, is banished from CG heaven to modern-day New York. Say it ain't so! The heiress must then save herself and become more responsible by finding her true love in a city where (as Sex and the City demonstrated) true love is hard to find. What's worse, we're guessing that she's working to a deadline in finding love…could be before midnight, could be before her 21st but it will most definitely be before the end of the movie.

    Producer Barry Josephson, who bought Bill Kelly's original script for the film way back in 1997, believes that Lima is the perfect choice to direct. He said of Lima’s experience: “Having done a movie that used CG and live action, he understands how to integrate the animation in this movie into the live action incredibly well’.

    No actors or voices are yet attached to the lead characters, who will include the Princess, her New York lover and the evil Queen who banishes our heroine. But if we had to put money on it, we'd guess that the evil Queen will have an English accent – always a bad sign in Disney films (think Captain Cook, Jaffar and Scar).
