Amy Adams, who started her career with Theatre Palisades, is reprising one of her most beloved roles for a new Disney Plus original feature. Adams is returning as Giselle in “Disenchanted,” the sequel to the 2007 original film “Enchanted.”
Described as a “satirical take on classic Disney princesses,” the 2007 live-action film “Enchanted” follows the life of princess-to-be Giselle who is living a fairy tale, until she is banished by the evil Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) from her animated world of Andalasia and thrusted into modern-day Manhattan where she learns some of real-life’s hardest lessons.
In the modern-world Giselle meets cynical, divorce lawyer Robert Philip (Patrick Dempsey) who rushed to her aid— as he teaches her how to adapt to real life, he begins to shape her views on love.
“Even though she is already promised a perfect, fairy-tale Prince back home— she has to wonder: Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?” according to IMDb.
Adams starred in the original film alongside James Marsden, Idina Menzel, Julie Andrews and more.
It was recently confirmed that Dempsey will make a return in the upcoming film “Disenchanted.” Additional members of the cast have not been confirmed yet.
“Enchanted” was a well-rounded success, earning over $127 at the box office and three 2008 Oscar nominations in the Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures category for Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz’ “Happy Working Song,” “So Close” and “That’s How You Know.” Adams was also nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture at the 2008 Golden Globes.
Disney Studios president of production Sean Bailey revealed the news of “Disenchanted” during The Walt Disney Company’s Investor Day 2020 on December 10. Although no further details about the project were provided, fans have already speculated that “Disenchanted” may imply some bad news for Princess Giselle.
“Disenchanted” will be streamed exclusively on Disney Plus.
