Fans have cried out for years for a sequel to the live-action fantasy musical hit and while it’s sat in development for years, it’s officially confirmed that Amy Adams will return for the Enchanted follow-up entitled Disenchanted, which was also confirmed to be a Disney+ exclusive at the Disney Investors Day presentation.
In the follow-up, Adams returns as Giselle, who found her life flipped upside down when she fell out of her animated fantasy world and discovered herself stuck in real-life Manhattan.
Disenchanted will be directed by Emmy nominee Adam Shankman (Hocus Pocus 2, Hairspray, Rock of Ages) with screenwriters including Rita Hsiao, Jessie Nelson, J. David Stem, David N. Weiss, based on original characters by Enchanted writer Bill Kelly.
The original animated/live-action hybrid, made for about $85 million, earned an impressive $340.5 million worldwide. $127.8 million of that came from North America and $212.7 million from overseas. Kevin Lima directed the movie from a script by Bill Kelly. It starred Amy Adams (American Hustle, The Woman in the Window), Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy, Bridget Jones’s Baby), James Marsden (X-Men franchise, Sonic the Hedgehog), Timothy Spall (Harry Potter franchise, Perpetual Grace, LTD), Idina Menzel (Frozen II, Uncut Gems), Rachel Covey and Susan Sarandon (Rick and Morty, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan).
