According to a post on Twitter, “Disenchanted” will be released exclusively on Disney Plus in 2022, but the exact date has not been confirmed.
“Working with Disney again has been like coming home,” said director Alan Shankman. “With Amy and this extraordinary cast, Alan and Stephen’s mind-blowing new score, and Barry and Disney’s support, I just hope to bring magic and joy to audiences around the world.”
The movie was filmed in Enniskerry, a village located in Dublin, Ireland. The village was transformed into a fairytale village containing a variety of shops that refer to popular Disney movies. These shops include: “A Whole Food World,” “A Tower of Hair,” “Smee’s Cheese,” and “Bibidi Bobidi Butchers.”
Although the trailer hasn’t been released yet, Disney revealed the plot of the sequel when they finished filming. The story will take place fifteen years after the ending of the first movie where Giselle and her family move to the suburb of Monroeville.
Despite finding her happily ever after, Giselle begins to question if she is truly happy. This results in a series of unfortunate events that turns the lives of those living in the real world and Andalasia upside down.
Amy Adams will return as Giselle, a fairytale princess who was forced from the animated world of Andalasia by the evil Queen Narissa and found herself in the live-action world of New York City.
The movie will also include more returning characters like Giselle’s husband Robert Philip played by Patrick Dempsey, Prince Edward played by James Marsden and Edward’s wife, Nancy Tremaine played by Frozen’s Idina Menzel.
“James Marsden and I have remained friends through the years, and we just have a blast,” Menzel said in an interview on Us Weekly. “We have a song together and we get to be really silly and fun.”
Speaking of songs, the sequel will include new musical numbers written by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. They originally collaborated for the first movie and received Academy Award nominations.
Hopefully, this sequel will be worth the long wait and will be able to recapture the magic of “Enchanted.”
