‘Enchanted 2’ script nears completion, Adam Shankman confirms directing, titled ‘Disenchanted’

During Television Critics Association panel for Step Up: High Water, the YouTube Red series produced by Adam Shankman, he spoke with Slash Film about the long-delayed Enchanted sequel.

“We are handing in a script in a couple weeks that I’m super happy with,” Shankman said, confirming that he is set to direct the film, which is titled Disenchanted.

“Then gotta get the music written.”

Disenchanted has been in development since 2010 with Amy Adams reprising her role as Gisele, the animated Disney princess who decided to stay in live-action New York at the end of Enchanted.

Disenchanted will be set 10 years after 2007’s Enchanted with Giselle rethinking her love of the real world. That is still the premise of the new script, Shankman said.

“The fundamental story has changed a little bit, but not from the base story of it,” Shankman said. “It’s about Giselle 10 years later going, ‘What is happily ever after?’”

In classic Disney fashion, Enchanted had five musical numbers, three of which were nominated for Oscars (“Falling Slowly” from Once won that year). Shankman said there would be more songs in the sequel.

“There’s a lot more songs this time than there were in the original, at least in the planning phase right now,” Shankman said.

Enchanted included animated sequences and Shankman said fans can expect the same amount of animation in the sequel. “As for the animation, it’s probably about the same amount,” he said.

There is no release, but if it moves quickly it could land in theaters next year or in 2020.

Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden are more than likely to reprise their roles from the first film. Shankman directed Hairspray, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, The Pacifier and A Walk to Remember.
