    I think Giselle should at least be a face character like all the other Princesses in the parks. There's a lot of material there for a CM portraying her to have a lot fun with guests. I think she'd be received pretty well.

    How did the film Enchanted do anyhow?

    $127.8 million in the U.S.

    $318 million Worldwide

    The DVD is also proven to be very successful.

    ...and How did you manage to post a comment when I hadn't even put in the poll yet?

    Thanks for the info.

    If you are creating a post with a poll, your post will post while you are creating the poll portion. So, I must have replied while you were still creating the corresponding poll.

    Another reason I think Giselle will be around for a bit is...let's face it she's a "Princess" character created by Disney. They generally seem to do well. Plus, she can be tacked onto to the whole "Princess Tour de Force" marketing and merchandise scheme and then profits ensues. And you know that means, if it sells they will create more ways for it to sell. And, her film was a refreshing look at the whole fairy tale genre IMHO. Disney has not forgotten how to do a Princess character/film.

    I'm trying to write this spoiler free.

    Though if you really think about it...Giselle isn't really a princess. She was just a girl. Only the girl that would marry Prince Edward would be come a princess. So who every he married, whether Giselle or someone else, should be labeled the princess of the film.

    Though I guess in Disney's world if Mulan can be called a princess then anyone can.

    Belle fits the same description as Giselle, but you know how that goes. Disney loves to slap that "princess" label on any heroine in their films. prince$$

    Regardless of whether she's an actual princess or not, she's a "Princess" type character.

    I saw that movie at home for the first time last night. Wife told me Maleficient was on there (Susan Sarandon) .Movie was okay...Giselle, well....well..she acted like a Princess..don't know how she pulled that off without dying laughing. And Edward...boy thats hard to believe that Cyclops from X-men. Wish Susan Sarandon did more.
    Giselle should be around for awhile but I don't think it'll be in the league with Ariel.

    I think if Pocahontas can stick around as long as she has (and some may say the same for Mulan), then we should be seeing Giselle for years to come.

    True, but also Ariel is in the nightime parade @ MK almost 20 years later... but Disney marketing can fix that.

    Dangit, now I'm gonna have to go watch the DVD again. I could have sworn the little girl and Giselle talked about how Giselle really was a princess, regardless of her upcoming marriage to a prince....

    If Gisella was princess of Andalasia, wouldn't that make her Edward's sister?

    And she wasn't a princess prior to marrying Charles.

    I watched it last night, so it's still fresh. The little girl asks her if she is a real princess and Giselle answers "not yet, but I will be". So she does have to marry the prince to become a real princess.
