After fifteen years the cast of the 2007 Disney Hit ‘Enchanted’ return to screens later this year in Disney’s Disenchanted set to hit Disney plus just in time for the Holidays on November 24th.
As part of this year’s D23 celebrations Disney unveiled not only an enchanting poster for the long anticipated sequel, but a brand new trailer featuring the return of the original cast as well as some new and familiar faces.
Just hearing Amy Adams once again singing Giselle’s melody from the original movie takes me right back to my childhood and I can’t wait to see how Giselle’s story unfolds as it looks as though the once animated princess has got herself into quite the pickle.
Disenchanted follows Giselle and Robert played by newly crowned Disney Legend Patrick Dempsey as they bid farewell to New York City for the seemingly idealistic town of Monroeville with Giselle’s step-daughter Morgan once again played by Gabriella Baldacchino. Disney legend Patrick Dempsey is also joined by fellow legend Idina Menzel as she reprises her role as Nancy alongside James Marsden as Prince Edward.
As the family attempt to settle down in Monroeville things aren’t as simple as Giselle might think with twists and turns seemingly around every corner. It’s not long before trouble is afoot as Maya Rudolph’s character Malvina Monroe makes herself known to the family unit with sidekicks Ruby and Rosaleen played by Jayma Mays and Yvette Nicole Brown.
With things taking it’s toll it’s not long before the former Princess seeks some Disney magic of her own as she wishes for the perfect Fairytale life. Unfortunately for Giselle it looks as though the bad luck just keeps on coming as the magic seemingly transforms the once bubbly and bright Giselle into Disney’s traditional ‘Wicked step-mother’. According to Disney’s official synopsis Disenchanted sees Giselle “accidentally transforming the entire town into a real-life fairy tale and placing her family’s future happiness in jeopardy. Now, Giselle is in a race against time to reverse the spell and determine what happily ever after truly means to her and her family”.
As part of the presentation Disney also showed off a brand new poster for the movie with Adams really leaning into the villainous side of Giselle. We certainly can’t wait to embark on another adventure with Giselle and friends this fall and no doubt we’ll be singing and dancing our way into Christmas if this films songs are as catchy as the last.
Disenchanted hits Disney Plus November 24th!
