Amy Adams just gave a big update on Enchanted 2

Amy Adams just gave a big update on Enchanted 2

While Disney+ has been keeping us going the last few months, it's nice to know there are lots of new Disney projects to look forward to - including the sequel to 2007's Enchanted, Disenchanted.

In December 2020, the production house revealed a LOT of upcoming TV and film projects, one of which is Enchanted 2, aka Disenchanted, and show star Amy Adams has since given a few major updates about the project.

Here's everything we know about the follow up so far, including release date, cast, plot theories and more. Exciting!

Do we have any Disenchanted teaser pics or info?

We sure do! On May 17, Amy Adams and the film's director Adam Shankman shared a photo from set on Twitter with the caption, "Wanted to get a few friends together to tell the story of what 'ever after' looks like…"

And if that wasn't enough, Amy Adams herself gave a major update on the project, and it sounds like exactly what we need.

There's going to be "a lot more singing and a lot more dancing, which was humbling," the Sharp Objects star told The Tonight Show. "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. 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.'"

When was Enchanted 2 announced?

At Disney's Investor Day on Thursday 10 December, Disney announced multiple projects across their platforms including Disney+, Hulu, and FX Networks. The announcement included the confirmation of Enchanted 2.

It wasn't the first time a sequel had been discussed, though. In 2016, director Adam Shankman signed on to direct the movie, later revealing in early 2018 that they had a script ready to go.

In May 2019, Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz (who worked on the music and score for the first movie) added that they were actually still trying to "get the script right" but "that it is definitely being worked on." Looks like the script is officially right, then!

Who will star in Enchanted 2?

At Disney's Investor Day, Amy Adams was confirmed to return as Princess Giselle. Then, in January 2021, Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey confirmed he will return as lawyer Robert. Eek!

"I just got this script for the second movie, and then I'm starting to go through and get notes together," he said on Good Morning America [15 January]. The star also revealed there was talk of Disenchanted starting the film this spring, while also praising "amazing" co-star Adams.

Idina Menzel will return as Nancy, while newcomer Gabby Baldacchino will take on the role of Robert's now-teenage daughter Morgan. Also joining the cast is Yvette Nicole Brown, Kolton Stewart, The Office's Oscar Nunez, Glee's Jayma Mays and Saturday Night Live's Maya Rudolph. Incredible.

James Marsden will also return as Prince Edward, after discussing his desire to in 2020. "They've been talking about making that movie for a while but I hope so, I hope we make it," he said at the time (via Digital Spy). "We've been fooled before that it was gonna happen, it didn't happen. We should do it before we get too long in the tooth."

What will happen in Enchanted 2?

In the first Enchanted film, Princess Giselle is banished from her kingdom by her lover's evil stepmother. She is then transported to the real world where she meets lawyer Robert and finds herself falling for him.

The end of the first film sees Nancy and Prince Edward return to live in fantasy land, while Giselle stays in the real world, marries Robert and opens a fashion store. So BOY do we have questions about the second film:

  • Are Nancy and Edward still together?

  • Is Giselle's fashion store still going?

  • Is Robert still dreamy?

When will Enchanted 2 be released?

Disney haven't confirmed an exact date, but we do know it's due to be in 2022, and it'll drop on Disney+.

We'll be ready and waiting.
