Dear Disney,

Enchanted? Adorable. Sparkly. Lots of great in-jokes. Jodi Benson and Paige O'Hara cameos, gleeeeee!

However... You cast Idina Menzel in a movie like this and didn't have her sing a note? Huh???

Yours confusedly,
Val

Then again, it's not the first time. Witness the complete waste of Robert bloody Guillaume as Rafiki. (Who of course gets KILLER songs in the stage version of TLK. And is played by a woman. O.o )

He did get to sing in the sequel. Only the sequel was a piece of crap. Which isn't to say that I didn't love it.

That's right, he was Mayor Shinn in that wasn't he? (Haven't actually gotten around to seeing it.)

She did one song. They cut it. It will be on the DVD, allegedly.

Whatevs. Total waste.

I was wondering if it would be something like that...

Ah. tv_elf and I speculated that this was the case, but we didn't know for sure.

Loved the movie, regardless. Most fun Disney fairy tale in many years. Best Disney princes (animated-kingdom prince and NY "prince," that is) ever.

Add on top of me leaving the theatre going "But... She can sing!" the muzac played Defying Gravity after the credits! I think I went a bit to theatre geek on A.

Agree with the brilliance, and I must say I was impressed with Amy Adams- the girl can sing! Also noticed that Judy Kuhn had a cameo.

Oh, cool, I missed her! :: checks IMDB :: No Lea Salonga, tho. The full set would have been awesome! :-D
