The movie that stood out to me when it comes to blending between live-action and animation is Enchanted. In the first opening sequence, you get to see Princess Giselle and Prince Edward were experiencing a “happily ever after” moment in a true Disney animated fashion. And the next scene, you see something that is shocking like Giselle gets exiled from the animated world by an evil queen named Narissa and end up being transported to New York City, the place where she fell in love with a divorce lawyer. The category belongs to fantasy and musical, because it adds on the music that connects to the story that can make the audience to feel satisfied throughout the film.
