Moviegoers were “Enchanted” with Giselle, the upbeat young woman from a faraway fantasyland called Andalasia who is eager to meet her Prince Charming. She gets pushed down a well by a jealous queen and ends up in New York, where the naive Giselle meets a nice guy named Robert and gets a shocking lesson in the realities of life on earth. The eternal optimist is being pursued by Prince Edward from Andalasia, and Giselle has to figure out which guy is the true prince of her heart.All that Jasmine from “Aladdin” wishes for is to be treated as a person, not an object. She’s the sultan’s daughter, who dreams of breaking free from her sheltered life in the royal home and living in a land where she’s allowed to make her own choices, including marrying whomever she wants (not necessarily a prince). Her wit and sassiness are a good match for Aladdin, a boy she meets after running away from home.
