The popularity of Enchanted, which was released in 2007, spawned a sequel. Disney was permitted to experiment with how they portrayed tales inspired by royalty in this multimedia feature film, which contained a blend of conventional animation and live-action. Enchanted succeeded in honoring Disney’s most famous princesses and mocking its tropes.
Thanks to overwhelming fan demand, Disney has finally announced the long-awaited sequel to Enchanted. It was generally expected that Disney would continue the Enchanted series once the film’s finale grew too unclear for the studio. During Disney Investor Day 2020, the title of the film, Disenchanted, was announced.
So far, this is all we know about the upcoming chapter. Despite the time gap between Enchanted and the planned sequel, the official description provides a good idea of what to anticipate from Disenchanted. Giselle returns to the Monroeville suburbs with Robert and their teenage daughter Morgan 15 years after Enchanted. She must face the trials of a new home and understand what true happiness means to her and her new family.
New Characters And Cast For ‘Disenchanted’
Adams, Dempsey, Menzel (Nancy), and Marsden (Prince Edward) will return for the sequel. Meanwhile, new characters will be played by Maya Rudolph, Jayma Mays, Yvette Nicole Brown, Kolton Stewart, and Oscar Nunez.
Rudolph announced that she would play one of the film’s antagonists in a tweet. On the other hand, Newcomer Gabby Baldacchino will play Morgan Philip, Robert’s daughter, Rachel Covey portrayed in the previous film.
Disenchanted Plot: What Has Enchanted 2 About?
We obtained our first official storyline summary for Giselle’s comeback when the commencement of production was announced in May 2021:
“Fifteen years after the previous film’s events, Giselle relocates with Robert and Morgan to the Monroeville suburbs, where she must balance the hardships of a new house while finding what true happiness means to her and her new family.”
After Enchanted, Giselle married Robert. The sequel is reported to take up with Giselle doubting her happily-ever-after existence, unwittingly sparking events that turn everyone’s lives upside-down in the real world and Andalasia.
Adams indicated in September 2021 that the sequel would contain “a lot more singing and a lot more dancing,” which had one drawback. “I was in my 20s the last time I danced as much as I’m supposed to in this, and now I’m not in my 20s,” she said.
“It’s different in your forties. When I dance, I look like I’m in my 20s in my head, but when I see the replay, I’m like, ‘Whoa, that’s not the same.'” Speaking of singing, Disenchanted will also correct a flaw in the original film by allowing Menzel to perform after her song was removed. Dempsey will also sing in the film, which will be his first time.
Enchanted 2 Release Date: When Will It Be Released?
The film’s release date was pushed back for a variety of reasons. The most significant cause was the pandemic concerns plaguing our planet in 2019, 2020, and today. As a result of this, Disney+ has planned and scheduled the debut of this next component of Disney+ in Autumn 2022.
This announcement was made on November 12, 2021, by Disney+ Day. So, after a lengthy wait, the big news was eventually revealed on the Disney+ broadcast. Twitter posted the material based on this. However, all websites with diverse themes shared the same film notion concerning the premiere date.
The remainder of the film will be shot in Ireland from May to July 2021. However, there was no disruption in its manufacturing. It is scheduled to be published in the Autumn of 2022. The film will be released shortly, according to Screenrant.
Will There Be New Music In Disenchanted?
The sequel ups the ante with fresh music from Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, who gave us musical jewels like “True Love’s Kiss” and “That’s How You Know” in the original film.
Adams indicated that there would be “a lot more singing and more dancing” in this film during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
“I was in my 20s the last time I truly danced as much as I’m supposed to in this, and I’m not in my 20s anymore,” Adams remarked. “It’s different in your forties. When I dance, I look like I’m in my 20s in my head, but when I see the replay, I’m like, ‘Whoa, that’s not the same.'”
In addition, despite not having any musical numbers in the previous film, Dempsey and Menzel will be singing in the sequel.
Menzel told PEOPLE, “I’m incredibly delighted because these songs, Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken penned, the tunes are wonderful.” “But there’s so much music, and Amy [Adams] is singing her heart out, and Patrick [Dempsey] is tap dancing and singing. It’s very magnificent and joyous, and everyone will like it.”
