The sequel to the beloved musical was announced during Disney’s INvestors Day Conference in December of 2020; confirming long-standing rumors of the in-development sequel.
Adams herself has been stirring up rumors as far back as 2016, and will finally see her long-awaited sequel come to fruition.
In addition to the six-time Oscar nominee, the film will showcase some familiar faces and some recognizable newcomers to the cast.
Patrick Dempsey’s down-to-earth Robert Phillip will be returning, as well as Idina Menzel’s Nancy, and James Marsden’s Prince Edward.
Rounding out the cast is newcomers Maya Rudolph- slated to play the villain of the film- as well as Community star Yvette Nicole Brown, and Glee veteran Jayma Mays.
The musical will again be composed by the renowned Alan Menken. The eight-time OScar winning composer was the genius behind the music of the first film, and will once again be bringing his brilliance to the sequel.
In a change from the first film, Adam Shankman will be taking over directing duties from Kevin Lima for Disenchanted.
A veteran in the field, Shankman is known for directing family films such as The Pacifier, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, and BEdtime STories; as well as directing the musical Hairspray.
Details about the film’s plot have been kept securely under wraps, with a few reporting the sequel to take place ten years after the events of the first film.
Adams has shared that the film is shooting in Ireland, which should speak to the different visual elements as compared to the original; which took place, almost entirely, in New York City.
Although no official release date has been announced, the sequel will debut on the Disney+ streaming service, likely as an exclusive.
