The story is great in that its main character, the naive and idealistic Giselle, becomes a real person while still maintaining hope and optimism that true love is the most powerful force in the world. The Prince is dashing, the Witch is wicked, and the weasley Nathaniel simply makes you cringe. Disney Princess buffs will notice the shameless references to the classics- Giselle stares through an aquarium while "Part of Your World" plays in the background, and rushes over a hill mirroring Belle's movements from the beginning of Beauty and the Beast. Just for good measure, there are gags on such classic expectations, too, but I won't give any more away.
Disney made an incredibly good move when calling on Stephen Schwartz once again. Schwartz's resume includes creating the music and lyrics for musicals such as "Wicked", "Pippin", and "Godspell", and he has worked with Alan Menkin before on Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I can't really say much more- the movie truly speaks for itself. Overall, the result is phenomenal without being too sugary sweet.
