The cast for Disney’s upcoming sequel Disenchanted continues to grow.
Deadline has revealed that Maya Rudolph, Yvette Nicole Brown and Jayma Mays are set to join the Disney+ Enchanted sequel. Details are light, but Rudolph is said to be portraying one of the main villains in the film. Meanwhile, Brown and Mays are “potentially portraying evil as well.”
More details on Disenchanted began to emerge last week. While we knew that Amy Adams’ Giselle would return, we now know that Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden and Idina Menzel will reprise their roles from the original. The character of Morgan will also return, although a new actress will play her since Rachel Covey is no longer young enough for the role. The main villain in the sequel is named Malvina Monroe, which could be Rudolph’s character or potentially her boss if she’s a lesser villain.
The plot reportedly revolves around Giselle and her family rushing to save the Kingdom of Andalsia from Monroe after their fairytale life in the suburbs goes awry. Snow White’s seven dwarfs are also said to appear and have some impact on the story.
Disenchanted will begin production this year, with filming taking place in Ireland over the summer. The Adam Shankman-directed film will be released exclusively on Disney+, although no release date is currently set.
