‘Enchanted’ sequel, ‘Disenchanted’: Amy Adams says ‘We’re working on it’

During her appearance on The Talk, promoting the HBO series Sharp Objects, Amy Adams gave fans a tease that Disney’s Disenchanted will eventually happen and she’s excited about returning to bring Giselle, the singing princess from the 2007 hit film, back to the screen.

“I am absolutely up for that,” Adams said when asked by co-host Sara Gilbert about reprising her role in a sequel. “We’re working on it — so hopefully.”

Check out the video clip below.

Amy Adams during an appearance today on The Talk gave a brief update on the status of DisenchantedDisney’s long-in-the-works sequel to its Adams-starring 2007 hit about Giselle, the singing animated Disney princess who crosses over into the real world.

The sequel is currently in development with Adam Shankman attached to direct, a project that has been rumored since 2014. Back then Anne Fletcher was aboard to helm a script written by J. David Stem and David N. Weiss from an earlier draft by Jessie Nelson. Barry Josephson and Barry Sonnenfeld are back as producers.

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.

In addition to Adams, the film also starred Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel, Rachel Covey and Susan Sarandon. The film made $340.5 million at the global box office and was nominated for three Best Song Oscars from the team of Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz.
