What We Know About The Enchanted Sequel

If the first installment of the laughably-saccharine romantic comedy fairytale Enchanted left you enamored, we have good news for you. A whopping 14 years after the first film's release in 2007, a sequel has been officially confirmed and it will be entitled Disenchante(via US Magazine). If you're thinking a sequel just can't do justice to the original without Amy Adams' singsongy hyper-perfection and Patrick Dempsey's bewildered charm, then we have even more good news for you. Both Adams and Dempsey will be reprising their roles of Giselle and Robert Philip.


While Disney confirmed a few weeks ago that Adams would return for "more fantastical fun," Dempsey's coming-aboard just became official. The outlet reported that on a Jan. 14 episode of Good Morning America, Dempsey confirmed that he had just received the script and spoke warmly of his memories shooting the first film saying, "It was a fun project to be a part of." He also spoke highly of his costar, saying, "Amy Adams is so amazing in that film."

Fans are excited about the Enchanted sequel

Disney announced via Twitter that the movie will be available exclusively for streaming on its Disney Plus service when it is released and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. One fan tweeted with exuberance, "THIS IS THE BEST NEWS I HAVE HEARD IN A LONG, LONG TIME!!!" While another said, "I'm excited for this too! This was where I fell in love with Amy Adams!" 


Though an exact release date is not yet known, Dempsey says the team is hoping to begin shooting the film this coming spring (via US Magazine). He also assured Good Morning America that he is already hard at work reprising his charming role, saying now that he has the script he is "starting to go through and get notes together." A plot is still, for the most part, a mystery, but the story is said to pick up following Giselle and Robert about 10 years after the events of the first film, when a fairytale princess finds herself in New York City and falls in love with the cynical, hardly-princely Robert (via Vulture).
