Many fans have been wondering what Giselle’s next chapter would be more than a decade after the release of Disney’s “Enchanted.” Fans no longer have to wait, as the media behemoth has finally announced the long-awaited sequel.
The fairytale film, titled “Disenchanted,” will be available exclusively on Disney+ beginning November 24.
According to Insider, many fans have been waiting for this moment since the film was first announced two years ago at Disney Investor Day.
The following month, Patrick Dempsey teased fans about the sequel, confirming that he would reprise his role as the protagonist’s love interest, Robert Philip.
Aside from him, Amy Adams will reprise her role as Giselle, the young girl who fell into a magical well in Andalasia. She found herself in the busy streets of New York City after falling into the abyss of darkness.
Fans’ favorite actors James Marsden and Idina Menzel will also return.
Fans are excited to see the sequel because Dempsey confirmed to Variety that he would sing and dance for the first time in his decades-long career.
When asked about returning to the film, he stated that working with his former co-stars is exciting after 14 years.
“We need those romantic comedies and those musicals to get people out of the doldrums that we’re in.”
He added that there’s a “reason” he’s never performed in public, but he hopes fans will enjoy his voice in the film, where he’ll perform “really fun” songs and choreography.
As the storyline of “Disenchanted” is darker than the first, new faces will appear in the sequel film.
According to Deadline, the film’s villain will be comedian Maya Rudolph, who confirmed her role in a tweet:
“What’s a good fairy tale without a great villain? I’ll see you in Andalasia my pretties….”
Other newcomers include Kolton Stewart and Oscar Nunez, best known for his role in “The Office.”
Gabby Baldacchino will play Giselle and Robert’s daughter Morgan in the film, which will be her feature film debut.
According to the film’s official synopsis, the couple has already left New York City to relocate to a new home.
