Disenchanted: Filming Begins On Enchanted Sequel As Patrick Dempsey Lands In Ireland

Disenchanted: Filming Begins On Enchanted Sequel As Patrick Dempsey Lands In Ireland

We have been longing to see a sequel to Disney's Enchanted ever since 2007 when the film first dropped.

And it looks as if our patience (14 years' worth of it!) has finally paid off, with one of the leads of the classic film landing in Ireland to start filming.

Patrick Dempsey has given us a sneak peek at production on Disenchanted after he posted a series of lush country landscapes on his Instagram page.

He simply captioned the snaps 'Ireland', leading to Disney fans begging to know more about the new film.

For the uninitiated, Enchanted followed princess Giselle (Amy Adams) in the fairytale world of Andalasia. When she's set to marry her charming Prince Edward (James Marsden), his wicked stepmother (brilliantly played by Susan Sarandon) banishes Giselle to a place where there is no happily ever afters - New York City.

Trying to adapt to this horrible 'real' world, her saving grace is none other than Grey's Anatomy's McDreamy - aka Patrick Dempsey, who plays divorce lawyer Robert Philip.

While a sequel has been in the works as some time, Disenchanted was finally confirmed by Disney in 2020 during Disney Investor Day, alongside a stack of other upcoming titles.

We thought Enchanted ended with a happily ever after (

Set to premiere on Disney+ next year, Disenchanted will follow Giselle once again as she's left pondering what happily ever after means - and accidentally triggering a series of events that turns life upside down for both the real world and Andalasia.

And the sequel will see Patrick, 55, show off his musical talents, so we will be able to see whether his singing is as dreamy as everything else.

"I've been talking to director [Adam Shankman]," he told Variety earlier this year. "The story is getting better and better. There's a great cast coming together. And the musical numbers, I get to sing and dance.

"To work with everybody again after 14 years is just really exciting. We need some escapism right now. We need those romantic comedies and those musicals to get people out of the doldrums that we're in."

We cannot WAIT for this!
