After 14 years, 'Enchanted' is finally having a sequel! Here are all the latest details.
Just like Sleeping Beauty, 'Enchanted 'is finally waking up from its long slumber!
The hit musical comedy film is officially picked up by Disney, and the sequel is already in the works.
'Enchanted' released in 2007 and follows Giselle (Amy Adams), a stereotypical Disney fairytale princess. She lives in a magical animated world called Andalasia, filled with staple fairytale elements such as talking animals, a castle, and a handsome Prince Charming played by James Marsden.
However, Edwards' stepmother, the evil Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon), transported Giselle to New York in a bid to keep the throne to herself. Thus began, an epic fairytale adventure in the bustling city of New York.
The first film had a happy ending, but needless to say, we still need our second dose of magical moments. Luckily, our fairy godmothers at Disney granted our wish! A sequel titled 'Disenchantment' is finally coming.
Here's everything we know.
Initial Release Date: 2022
The sequel will arrive sometime next year. There is no exact release date yet, but fans should be glad to know that 'Disenchantment' has finally entered production.
Disney announced the great news on May 17 through a tweet that also revealed that the sequel is coming to Disney plus in 2022.
The first film came out in late 2007. So we wouldn't be surprised if the sequel will also arrive in the fourth quarter next year.

The sequel will take place 10 years after the events of the first film.
Giselle married Robert at the end of the first film, and the sequel will see Giselle questioning her happily-ever-after life. She accidentally triggered circumstances that will turn everyone's lives upside down, both in the real world and in Andalasia.
According to DisInsider, the conflict began when Giselle starts probing her new life. Giselle, Robert, and Morgan move to a new house in the suburbs, managed by the villain Malvina Monroe. After things started going downhill, Giselle makes a wish to transform their lives into a perfect fairytale. Of course, things go wrong and Giselle regrets her wish. She must now hurry to save her family and the Kingdom of Andalasia before the clock strikes midnight.
According to the same source, Snow White's dwarves, Grumpy, Happy, Sneezy, Sleepy, Dopey, Bashful, and Doc, will play an important role in the film.
Fans will be glad to know that most of the cast members from the original film are confirmed to return. Adams will play Giselle once again, and Marsden, Patrick Dempsey, and Idina Menzel are also reprising their roles. Dempsey starred as Giselle's earthling love interest Robert, while Menzel was his girlfriend Nancy.
The only main cast member who will not be returning is Rachel Covey, who played Robert's young daughter Morgan in the first film. The character will be played by Gabby Baldacchino.
'Disenchanted' will also be introducing a slew of new faces. Kolton Stewart, Oscar Nunez, Maya Rudolph, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Jayma Mays are all confirmed to join the cast list for the sequel. Rudolph will play the central villain, Malvina Monroe.
Monroe, a two-time Emmy-winning actress, told Variety: "If this had been maybe 15 years ago and someone was like, 'Do you want to be the bad guy?' I might've said, 'Geez, I don't know.' But I've come to learn in my many years that the most fun thing you get to do is when you get to play The Most.'
The movie has just entered production as of this writing. Knowing that the film is slated for a 2022 release, the closest possible date for us to see the trailer will be late this year. We'll monitor the latest update for you and edit this space once the trailer drops. Are you excited for 'Disenchantment' too?
