This follow-up to Disney’s 2007 fantasy film finds Giselle, Robert (Patrick Dempsey, back in the role), and their growing family move to the sleepy suburban community of Monroeville in search of a more fairy tale life. Suburbia, unfortunately, isn’t the quick fix Giselle was hoping for. Frustrated that her happily ever after hasn’t been so easy to find, she turns to the magic of Andalasia for help, 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.
Disenchanted is directed by A Walk to Remember and Bedtime Stories helmer Adam Shankman (Kevin Lima directed the first film) and written by Brigitte Hales (Once Upon a Time). The cast brings back cast members Idina Menzel and James Marsden, and brings in newcomers Maya Rudolph, Gabriella Baldacchino, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Jayma Mays.
The movie features songs with music by 8-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken (Aladdin, The Little Merdmaid) and lyrics by three-time Oscar-winning lyricist Stephen Schwartz, whose work on Enchanted garnered three Academy Award nominations. Menken also composes the score.
Watch out for Disenchanted‘s debut on November 18, exclusively on Disney+.
