Ella of Frell

Ella of Frell is the protagonist of Ella Enchanted. The 2004 movie loosely adapts the children’s book as a fantasy musical comedy. As a baby, the fairy Lucinda gives Ella the “gift” (or curse) of obedience. This magically compels Ella to literally obey every command she’s given, even at the sacrifice of her own autonomy. Despite this, she is clever, headstrong, and ironically independent given that others control her life. Unlike other girls, she doesn’t swoon at the sight of Prince Charmont – which makes him more attracted to her. She’s portrayed by Emmy-winning actress Anne Hathaway.
