Andrews To Narrate Enchanted
Film legend Julie Andrews told SCI FI Wire that she will provide the narration for the upcoming romantic fantasy film Enchanted, an animated/live-action movie starring Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy's Dr. McDreamy).
"I am going to be doing a narration for Disney on a movie called Enchanted, and that happens in June for me," Andrews said in interviews while promoting Shrek the Third, in which she has a voice role. "I love the team."
Enchanted tells the story of young girl (Adams) who is banished by an evil queen (Susan Sarandon) from her animated fairy-tale world to real-world Manhattan. James Marsden (X-Men) and Timothy Spall also star in the movie, which is directed by Kevin Lima (102 Dalmations) from a script by Bill Kelly (Premonition).
Andrews isn't sure if the narration is an afterthought for Enchanted, which has completed production. "I don't know," she said. "I'm glad to do it either way. ... It is very modern, as well as [a] fairy tale."
Andrews will next be heard as the voice of Queen Lillian in Shrek the Third, the third installment in the hit animated franchise, which opens May 18.
