Kansas City Star on Animated References in "Enchanted"
The Kansas City Star has published a complete list of all the references to Disney’s animated film library that appear in Enchanted, the partially animated movie that opened last weekend. The list includes obvious homages, such as the visual references to Cinderella and Snow White early in the film, and less-obvious ones, such as the casting of Jodi Benson (voice and body model of The Little Mermaid) and Paige O’Hara (voice and body model of Belle in Beauty and the Beast) in bit parts. The article covers the entire movie, and contains spoilers.
In other news, Enchanted also took the top box-office spot for the five-day Thanksgiving weekend, grossing an estimated $50 million to also rate as the second-largest Thanksgiving opening weekend right behind the $80.1 million grossed by Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 2 in 1999.
