What’s it about?

In the magical land of Andalasia, Giselle is about to marry Prince Edward and live happily ever after. But the prince’s evil step mother, Queen Narcissa, does not want the wedding to happen so she pushes Giselle into a magical well. The well transports Giselle to the ‘real world’ New York City, where she is lost and alone. But Giselle becomes friends with Robert and his daughter Morgan who take care of her. After finding out that Giselle is missing Prince Edward travels to the real world to save her. Queen Narcissa and her evil sidekick Nathaniel also enter the real world to prevent Giselle from returning to Andalasia. But Giselle has already begun to be independent, feel at home in the real world and fall in love with Robert.

What to look out for

  • Nathaniel tries to hurt and torture Giselle’s chipmunk
  • The queen makes Giselle take a bite from a poisoned apple. Giselle then falls down and is unconscious
  • The queen changes into a scary, large dragon and carries Robert up a tower. Giselle tries to rescue him by attacking the dragon but the dragon lets goes of him and he falls.
