Disney has confirmed that cameras are rolling on Disenchanted, the long-overdue sequel to Enchanted. You'll find a synopsis, a list of new and returning cast members, and more after the jump...
Disney has announced that production on the sequel to Enchanted, Disenchanted, has officially begun. Directed by Adam Shankman (The Wedding Planner), this live-action follow-up to the beloved classic is currently shooting in Ireland and will arrive on Disney+ in 2022.
Starring Amy Adams (Justice League) as the hopelessly romantic and eternally optimistic Giselle now married and living in Monroeville, the movie also brings back Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy) as Giselle’s husband, the cynical pragmatist Robert Philip, James Marsden (X-Men) as the dashing but daft Prince Edward from Andalasia, and Idina Menzel (Frozen) as Nancy Tremaine, the former dressmaker now married to Prince Edward.
The cast also includes Maya Rudolph as Malvina, Giselle’s new adversary in Monroeville, Kolton Stewart as Malvina’s son, Yvette Nicole Brown as Rosalyn, Jayma Mays as Ruby, Oscar Nunez as Edgar, and introduces Gabriella Baldacchino as Robert Philip’s now-grown daughter, Morgan.
"Working again with Disney has been like coming home," Shankman says. "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."
Disenchanted features the much-anticipated return of Giselle, the princess from the fairy tale world of Andalasia banished to Manhattan who found her real Princess Charming in divorce lawyer Robert Philip. 15 years later, Giselle moves to the suburb of Monroeville with Robert and their teenage daughter Morgan, where she must juggle the challenges that come with a new home and discover what happily ever after truly means to her and her new family.
The movie will also feature new songs from Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz.
