Disney+ has just announced that “Disenchanted” will be exclusively added to their streaming service in 2022! This will be an incredible addition to the Disney Plus family as Director Adam Shankman and Producer Barry Josephson tells the Disney+ news release,
“Working again with Disney has been like coming home,” says director/producer Adam Shankman. “With Amy and this extraordinary cast, Alan and Stephen’s mind blowing new score, and Barry and Disney’s support, I just hope to bring magic and joy to audiences around the world.”
Producer Barry Josephson says, “I guess dreams do come true…producing ‘Enchanted’ was the most rewarding film experience I’ve ever had. I’m so excited for Adam Shankman to begin filming ‘Disenchanted.’ I want to thank everyone at Disney for supporting us all the way. Very special thanks to Amy Adams for deciding to play ‘Giselle,’ the character she created again! And we are so fortunate to have this incredible cast!”
For those who are unaware, The Enchanted Disney film tells the story of the beautiful princess Giselle (Amy Adams) who unfortunately leaves her fairy tale land due to the hands of her evil-stepmother Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) and is confronted by the not so fairy tale land of New York City.
While finding her way, she meets a lawyer named Robert (Patrick Dempsey) and is torn between her once fairy tale relationship with Prince Edward (James Marsden) that she left behind or pursuing a new and very real relationship with Robert in New York City.
As Disney fans are eagerly anticipating this new enchanted sequel, and Disney+ shares some important details and a description stating,
“Disenchanted” features the much-anticipated return of Giselle, the princess from the fairy tale world of Andalasia banished to Manhattan who found her real Princess Charming in divorce lawyer Robert Philip. 15 years later, Giselle moves to the suburb of Monroeville with Robert and their teenage daughter Morgan, where she must juggle the challenges that come with a new home and discover what happily ever after truly means to her and her new family.
“Disenchanted” will feature new songs from Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, whose work on “Enchanted” garnered three Academy Award® nominations.
Recently, Patrick Dempsey was seen filming in Ireland and many rumors were also being spread around social media that we might even see the Seven Dwarfs from Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs film make a cameo appearance to Disenchanted.
