  • [Chat] Should Giselle be a permanent character at the parks?

    I think that she should a permanent character at both parks. We are months from the release of the Enchanted DVD and of course there's the debate on whether she's a 'true' princess or not even though Disney is marketing her as a princess.

    But she could be a great face character in her green 'curtain dress' walking around Fantasyland. What are your thoughts?

    YES I DO.

    But didn't Amy Adams sign something saying they couldn't use her in the parks?

      I'm saying no. It'd be nice to have her for a few years but permanent, not so much.

        Idk.... it might not be too bad of an idea. If they're gonna keep the PPF around for a long while, she'd probably fit in there nicely. Maybe keep her out of parades for now, though.

          In the curtain dress, not the wedding dress.

              Enchanted is tricky because animated Giselle is clearly based off Amy Adams. That brings up all sorts of legal issues(such as paying Adams royalties) when they use her "likeness" in the parks. I've read that they're not marketing Giselle as part of the princesses precisely because if they were to do so, they would have to pay Adams royalties.

                  I've no idea of the legal issues, but I love Giselle and would be very happy to see her in the park, and also part of a parade where "That's How You Know" is performed.

                    This will never happen. Amy Adams' contract with Disney is written up so that every time Giselle is in the park, she gets a royalty.

                      Giselle IS NOT A PRINCESS!!!!

                      She never married the prince and at the beginning of the film she wasn't a princess.

                        I still think they should have Princess Nancy there.
                        For certain you must be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was.

                          No, Giselle should stay away from the park.

                              Yeah Giselle isn't a princess, but she should still be represented somewhere in the park, Disney has enough money to pay Amy Adams royalties for her character to appear in the park. I think the whole Princess Nancy thing would be cute but I don't know if enough kids would pick up on who she was since she wasn't as big of a character of Giselle.

                                  Good point. I wonder if there's any way to prove or disprove Amy Adams asking for royalties for Giselle appearing in the park; I can't imagine why she would but hey, people have some odd demands these days. Even if she did ask for royalties, I can't see why Disney wouldn't just cough up a certain ammount of money for Giselle to wander the park for a year or so.

                                    I wish I could remember it now. It was some article in a newspaper that I read online.

                                    And just because Disney has the money doesn't mean they want to pay the royalties. If there's demand for Giselle, they'll find a way to make it work.

                                      I've been told this by a character host at PFF. all we got was Giselle in the pre - parade. Johnny Depp wasn't that smart to put that in the contract.

                                        I know... neither is Mulan a princess... yes, they are the main characters, the Disney heroines if you will, but not princesses.

                                        There are actually state and federal public laws that govern the uses of your identity. It is completely possible to deny a company the rights to use your identity. This is why many sweepstakes specifically state in their rules that by entering, you agree to let them do what ever they want with any photos taken of you in relation to the contest. This is also why Disney often puts up signs around areas where filming is going on in the parks stating that if you do not wish to appear, don't enter the area.

                                        These are both ways of saying, but entering, you waive your right to control your publicity. Both Amy Adams and Harrison Ford declined to give the rights to their likenesses to Disney. Lucas Arts does control the character of Indiana Jones, and they and their distributors do have the rights to Harrison's likeness (hence all the toys), when the deal was inked with Disney, Harrison had the option to give or deny this right to them as it was a new deal. He declined. Amy has also declined.

                                        That being said... I'm not sure why they declined. I can't think of a higher tribute to your talents than to have a character you played immortalized at Disneyland.

                                        Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
