Disenchanted (Enchanted 2) (2022, D: Shankman) S: Amy Adams

Before there were live-action remakes of Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast and every other fairy tale in the Disney stable, there was Enchanted. The 2007 film was an affectionate sendup of Disney’s animated catalogue, plucking a stereotypical Disney cartoon princess played by Amy Adams and dropping her in the real world. The film was a huge hit, so naturally it wasn’t long before speculation began swirling about a possible sequel.

But it’s been a while since we’ve had any real updates on that front, which is why we’re intrigued to see that today, the sequel has finally taken a big step forward. Adam Shankman, the director behind Hairspray and Rock of Ages, is now in talks to direct the Enchanted sequel, which is now going by the title Disenchanted. Adams is expected to return as Giselle.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news about the Enchanted 2 director. Disney has had an Enchanted sequel on its to-do list for quite some time. Even before the original film hit theaters, Disney was already smelling franchise potential. Development got underway in earnest around 2010, and Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) was attached to direct. But progress has been slow. The last time we got an update was last year, when we heard Disney was still polishing the script. With Shankman now on board, though, the studio is hoping to start shooting in summer 2017.

I loved the first movie, but then I love musicals. I hope they bring back Menken and Schwartz too because the songs were a huge part of the movie. And besides the Disney-spoof concept, it was a charming rom-com.

Yeah man, I was there for the first day, first show. And I used the $10 off Blu-ray coupon. Remember when Disney used to do those?

I really liked the first one but I rewatched it again earlier this year and to me it didn't really hold up. I remember being really into the parody material, but it all kind of fell flat the second time around.

re: Disenchanted (Enchanted 2) (2022, D: Shankman) S: Amy Adams

Adam Shankman was on a Television Critics Association panel for Step Up: High Water, the YouTube Red series he is producing based on the Step Up films. After the panel, he spoke with /Film about the sequel to Enchanted. Shankman is set to direct the film, which is titled Disenchanted.

“We are handing in a script in a couple weeks that I’m super happy with,” Shankman said. “Then gotta get the music written.”

Disenchanted has been in development since 2010. Amy Adams will reprise her role as Gisele, the animated Disney princess who decided to stay in live-action New York at the end of Enchanted. The sequel is set 10 years after 2007’s Enchanted. As the title suggests, Giselle may be rethinking her love of the real world. That is still the premise of the new script, Shankman said.

“The fundamental story has changed a little bit, but not from the base story of it,” Shankman said. “It’s about Giselle 10 years later going, ‘What is happily ever after?’”

In classic Disney fashion, Enchanted had five musical numbers, three of which were nominated for Oscars (“Falling Slowly” from Once won that year). Shankman said there would be more songs in the sequel.

“There’s a lot more songs this time than there were in the original, at least in the planning phase right now,” Shankman said.

Enchanted was bookended with animated sequences. Shankman said fans can expect the same amount of animation in the sequel.

“As for the animation, it’s probably about the same amount,” he said.

That seems like an eternity between live action films... But cool!

Was anyone asking for this? I mean, don't get me wrong, the original was cute and all. But you never hear anyone talking about it anymore. And the little girls who went to see it are 10 years older.

It's an easy sell for Disney+. My daughter was 2 when the original came out and we listened to the music a lot when she was little (I'm a big musical fan). She's 15 now and would totally watch another one with me. It's exactly the kind of thing they should be putting on their service.

Disney has been working on a sequel to their live-action/animation hybrid Enchanted for years, yet the sequel, entitled Disenchanted, was only confirmed late last year at the 2020 Disney Investor Day. While Disney had stated that Amy Adams would be returning for the Disney+ film, it wasn't clear who else from the original film would be returning. However, in a live stream with JLGB Virtual, composer Alan Menken has stated that both James Marsden and Idina Menzel would be returning for Disenchanted.

In addition to Adams' confirmed return, Patrick Dempsey has also announced he will be coming back for the sequel. But during the live stream, Menken played part of the Oscar-nominated Enchanted song "That's How You Know," and gave a few tidbits about Disenchanted. Menken stated that the film is "really good," and that "it's filming." But most importantly, Menken said "Amy Adams is in it. Patrick is in it. Idina Menzel is in it. James Marsden - they're in it."

Thought this thread was going to be about a movie based on the animated show on Netflix.

There's a Netflix show called this? Who knew.

I'm glad they got everyone back for this sequel. Something to look forward to.

That show is called Disenchantment.

I don’t know why anything else would be expected when the title has Enchanted 2 and Adams’ name in it.

Suprised it took so long for a sequel to get made--Enchanted was very popular when it came out. I guess this helped Adams' career really take off so maybe she was too busy.

Seems like leaving a decent chunk of change on the table by not putting this in theatres with, at minimum, a 30 day window.
