I watched the film The Enchanted last night randomly and unless I misunderstood something in the film, how and more importantly why did the strange family that lives in the woods turn into humans?

It only shows them at the end turning back into their original form but I don't understand why they chose to change into human form in the first place.

What was the purpose for their actions?

  • Never saw the movie, but I have the book somewhere in my basement. Loved it when I was younger!

  • @HTG: And can you say who the author is? I don't see anything on the IMDB page saying what it's adapted from.

  • I think they just wanted some kid of protection - not to be killed by hunters. Better to read the book though ) Feb 6, 2021 at 23:30
