We are finally getting a full-length trailer for Disney’s Disenchanted

Possibly the brightest spot of 2020 was Disney’s announcement of the Enchanted sequel, Disenchanted. Now, after years of waiting we are finally getting a look at the live-action film with our favorite maiden and just what she’s been up to the past 15 years.

Disenchanted Plot

As we all know, 15 years of marriage can put a different spin on the fairytale, and Disenchanted explores what happens after Giselle and Robert make their way out of the city and into the suburbs with their teenage daughter Morgan and new baby. For newcomers to the story, the original film is about a maiden, Giselle—played by Adams—who is sent away from her fairy tale, cartoon life because an evil queen is jealous of her voice and general vibe (lovely as well as loved). She lands squarely in New York City, where she tries to navigate her way back to her home of Andalasia. Along the way, she meets a cynical divorce lawyer, Robert (Dempsey), and suddenly she understands true love in a whole new way.

“I’m really excited because these songs Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken wrote… are incredible,” Menzel, who plays Nancy Tremaine in Enchanted, told People. The duo originally worked together on the 2007 film and received three Academy Award nominations. “There’s so much music, and Amy [Adams] singing her butt off, and it’s just Patrick [Dempsey] singing and tap dancing. It’s really glorious and joyful and people are going to love it.”

James Marsden, who plays the hopelessly romantic and aloof Prince Edward, added “It was a crime that in the first film…you have Idina Menzel, and she doesn’t sing a note,” Marsden told People. “We’ve raised the bar by giving her some big, Stephen Schwartz, Alan Menken … I can’t say too much about what she sings, but original music, I’ll say.”

Amy Adams added “The last time I really danced as much as I’m required to dance in this, I was in my 20s and now I’m not in my 20s,” Adams explained during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “It feels different in your 40s. In my heart, I look like I’m in my 20s when I’m dancing, and then I would watch playback and be like, ‘Whoa, that’s not the same.'”

The filming location of Disenchanted is Ireland, specifically in Wicklow and the areas around it. But, unlike in the original, the village of Enniskerry has now become the suburb of Monroeville. Dempsey wrote alongside a selfie on his Instagram account in May of 2021 “I love being in Ireland and I’m having so much fun working on this film #disenchanted.”

Marsden had a message for the fans of the original Enchanted, who can probably relate to Adams’ sentiment. “…All the fans from the original Enchanted…hopefully they’ll be happy to see this one as well. It has been a long time coming.”

Disenchanted Cast

Disney has shared that Patrick Dempsey and Amy Adams, along with much of the original cast and newcomers will be joining the film. Maya Rudolph, Oscar Nuñez, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Jayma Mays—along with Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa—all have roles in the sequel.

Disenchanted Release Date
