‘Enchanted’ fans can now sing their happy working song as Disney gives them something to look forward to this year.
It was in 2007 when Giselle, played by Amy Adams, got her happily ever after in Disney’s ‘Enchanted’. This year, with more than a decade that has passed, fans will get to see how Giselle and Robert (Patrick Dempsey) are getting by after their fairytale ending in the previous film, through the movie’s sequel ‘Disenchanted’.
The sequel was mostly shot in Ireland during May-July of 2021, with some scenes reshot in New York City in April 2022. It is expected to start streaming on Disney+ on November 24, 2022.
Director Adam Shankman of ‘Hairspray’ will be directing the follow-up movie, stirring more anticipation among musical fans when he said “a lot more singing and a lot more dancing ” can be expected. Disenchanted’s musical score is sure to be as magical as ever with world-renowned composers Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz taking over once again.
Idina Menzel (Nancy) will also get to show off her singing prowess this time around, after her number got cut out from the first film. Along with this, Dempsey will be marking the first time he will be singing on-screen, hoping the audience will “bear with” him.
An official first-look photo released in May by Disney+ shows Adams in her character beside new cast member Maya Rudolph, who will be playing the villain Melvina Monroe.
According to an article by Digital Spy, the first official plot synopsis for the sequel goes:
“Fifteen years after the events of the first film, Giselle moves with Robert and Morgan to the suburb of Monroeville, where she’s faced with juggling the challenges that come with a new home and discovering what happily ever after truly means to her and her new family.”
This time, “Giselle [is] questioning her happily-ever-after life, accidentally triggering events that make everyone’s lives turn upside-down in the real world and in Andalasia.”
