Disney is known for crafting beloved family friendly animated musicals. But before the House of Mouse started doing remakes of movies like Aladdin, it mixed both animation and live-action in 2007’s Enchanted. The sequel Disenchanted recently wrapped, and we can see how Amy Adams and director Adam Shankman celebrated this achievement.
Since Enchanted hit theaters well over a decade ago, fans were beginning to worry that a sequel would never happen. But the beloved characters will return to the screen in Disenchanted, including Oscar nominee Amy Adams as Giselle. And with the movie finally in the can, Adams and Adam Shankman celebrated, as you can see below
And just like that Disenchanted is officially in the can. While it’ll be some time before the project is completed and given its bells and whistles like visual effects, but the Enchanted sequel has never felt more real. We’ll just have to wait and see what musical adventures are coming our way with the Disney flick.
The above image comes to us from director-producer Adam Shankman’s personal Instagram account. While not actually revealing any sets or costumes for Disenchanted, it’s thrilling to learn that the project has taken such an exciting step forward. Although it does look like Amy Adams is still rocking some of Giselle’s magical hair in this image.
Enchanted’s sequel is currently expected to get its release on Disney+. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.
Not much is known about Disenchanted, but the limited information is definitely helping to buoy excitement for Disney fans out there. The new movie will once again feature musical numbers written by Broadway legends Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. The starring cast will also be back to join Amy Adams, including James Marsden, Patrick Dempsey, and Idina Menzel. Fans are especially hoping that the latter actress gets a song this time around, as Menzel didn’t get to sing in the first Enchanted.
At the end of Enchanted, Giselle was living her happily ever after in the real world with Patrick Dempsey’s Robert and his daughter Morgan. Meanwhile, Idina Menzel’s Nancy and James Marsden’s Prince Edward got married in the animated world of Andalasia. But the drama is continuing with Disenchanted, and I can’t wait to see how the last 15 years have been to that motley ensemble. There will also be a bevy of new characters in the streaming sequel, including a villain played by the always delightful Maya Rudolph.
Disenchanted is currently expected to hit Disney+ sometime in 2022. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
