Yes, it’s finally happening!

Disenchanted, aka Enchanted 2, is officially happening, and we finally have a release date for the much-awaited sequel.

Enchanted is a 2007 live-action/animated musical fantasy romantic comedy film directed by Kevin Lima and written by Bill Kelly. The movie focuses on a Disney princess-to-be who is forced from her animated world into the live-action world of New York City.

Enchanted is Disney’s one of the most popular films, and it also marks the return of traditional animation to a Disney feature film after the company’s decision to move entirely to computer animation in 2004.

It premiered on October 20, 2007, at the London Film Festival before its wide release on November 21, 2007, in the United States. The movie was loved by the audience and earned more than $340 million worldwide at the box office. Fans have been waiting for the sequel of this Disney movie since it was announced that it is in development. So, is the sequel coming? And if yes, then when will it air?

Here’s everything you need to know about Disenchanted.

What will Disenchanted be about?

Disenchanted will take place 15 years after the first movie, with Giselle living in the suburb of Monroeville with Robert and Morgan. 

When the production of the sequel was announced, we got our first official plot synopsis for the return of Giselle:

“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.”

At the end of Enchanted, Giselle married Robert, and we’re expecting to see Giselle and her questions regarding their marriage where she may accidentally trigger some events that will turn everyone’s lives upside-down.

In September 2021, Adams teased that the sequel would feature “a lot more singing and a lot more dancing” which had a particular downside. “The last time I really danced as much as I’m required to dance in this, I was in my 20s, and now I’m not in my 20s,” she said.

“It feels different in your 40s. In my heart, I look like I’m in my 20s when I’m dancing, and then I would watch playback and be like, ‘Whoa, that’s not the same.”

Who’s returning for the sequel?

Unsurprisingly, Amy Adams will be back as Giselle in the sequel. Back in 2016, when Shankman first signed on, Adams said that she’s “not going to let anyone else play Giselle” and confirmed in 2018 that she’s still “absolutely up for that” if the sequel goes ahead.

Patrick Dempsey will be back as Robert, James Marsden as Prince Edward, and Idina Menzel as Nancy.

Newcomers include Gabriella Baldacchino, who will be playing the role of Robert’s now-grown-up daughter Morgan. Maya Rudolph is joining the cast as Giselle’s new enemy Malvina, Kolton Stewart as Malvina’s son, Yvette Nicole Brown as Rosalyn, Jayma Mays as Ruby, and Oscar Nunez as Edgar.
