|~ Queen Narissa before transforming herself into a monstrous blue dragon.|
Queen Narissa (simply known as Narissa) is the main antagonist of Disney's 2007 fantasy film Enchanted. She is the stepmother of Prince Edward and the archenemy of Gisele.
Queen Narissa is a combination of several Disney villains, notably the Evil Queen and Maleficent - she was the reigning Queen of Andalasia, a fantasy world based on the traditional animated movies of Disney: she does not want her stepson Prince Edward to marry Giselle, because it would cause her to lose her place on the throne and plots to get rid of her by sending to a place where there are no happily ever afters: modern day New York City.
Narissa achieves this by disguising herself as an old hag and throws Giselle into a magic well - which transports her to the real world, however when Prince Edward goes after Giselle, Narissa has her henchman, Nathaniel go after them but grows increasingly angry at his failings.
Eventually, Narissa decides to enter the real world herself and deal with things, since Nathaniel seems incapable of doing so (in truth Nathaniel was starting to doubt his own purpose and would ultimately redeem himself).
Narissa manages to trick Giselle into eating a poisoned apple (once again taking the form of a hag) during a ball before revealing herself to the crowds, she mocks Prince Edward and Robert by saying that Giselle shall die by midnight without "true love's kiss" - Edward tries to do so, but he fails. However, Robert agrees to do so and Giselle awakens - Narissa grows angry at this and transforms herself into a monstrous blue dragon with the intent of killing everyone, starting by Giselle, but Robert valiantly stands between Narissa and Giselle to protect her. Narissa kidnaps Robert before bursting out of the Woolworth Building and climbing to the top in a scene reminescent of the titular gorilla from King Kong, and Bill Sikes from Oliver Twist (as well as Sleeping Beauty).
Giselle gives chase and after a brief confrontation, Narissa loses her grip (due to Pip the chipmunk standing on one of her horns with his extra weight) and fails to complete her shapeshifting spell, which engulfs her on a sickly, green glowing fire, and she falls down to the street where she is destroyed in a shining explosion, all that is left of her are viscous, glowing remains.
Powers and Abilities
Queen Narissa is very knowledgeable in different areas of black magic, such as but not limited to: shape-shifting which she can do by saying the phrase "Speciosus, formosus, praeclarus!", electrokinesis, water communication (which she not only can do through water but other forms of liquids such as soup and alcohol). She also has the power to see where anyone is in the world (Andalasia and the real world) by casting a spell "Reperio lemma miha!" on a New York water display. She is also capable of preparing different magical spells as she makes poisoned apples.
- Narissa is based off the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, undergoing similar transformations to both.
- Queen Narissa is the only Disney villain to date to have a stepson (Prince Edward).
- In her dragon form, despite having wings, she is unable to fly. As such, her wings are too small.
