It’s been over a decade since the Disney comedy film Enchanted hit the big screen. The film was a tongue-in-cheek take on the well-worn Disney Princess films that the studio has made since Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs erupted into theaters decades ago. While it was a film that could have been a cheap, lazy gag that goes on for longer than it needs to, it actually managed to be a fun, enjoyable ride with its heart in the right place.
Ever since the film made its surprising $340 million box office haul, there’s been talk of a sequel, Disenchanted, but it’s remained in development hell for years. Well, after quite some time, we’ve received our first update.
Speaking at a TCA panel, director Adam Shankman said (via /Film):
“We are handing in a script in a couple weeks that I’m super happy with. Then gotta get the music written. The fundamental story has changed a little bit, but not from the base story of it. It’s about Giselle 10 years later going, ‘What is happily ever after?’ There’s a lot more songs this time than there were in the original, at least in the planning phase right now.”
Amy Adams is set to reprise her role as Giselle, and while it’s not confirmed, we’d be surprised if not all key players didn’t return in some shape or form. The premise seems to be a good one, and we’re interested to see how Giselle has adjusted to city life, and how they can manage to make her “disenchanted” without making it wholly depressing.
