The first trailer for Disenchanted – the hotly anticipated sequel to Enchanted – has finally dropped and something is definitely different about the once eternally optimistic Giselle...
Feast your eyes on the trailer below:
The film reunites original cast members Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, Idina Menzel and James Marsden, who join new additions Maya Rudolph, Gabriella Baldacchino, Yvette Nicole Brown and Jayma Mays.
More than 10 years have passed since Giselle and Robert tied the knot, but the princess has grown disillusioned with life in the city.
The family pack their belongs and move their growing family to the sleepy suburban community of Monroeville in search of a more fairytale life.
Unfortunately, the relocation isn’t the quick fix Giselle hoped for. In suburbia there are a whole host of new rules, and a mean queen bee, Malvina Monroe (Rudolph) who makes Giselle feel more out of place than ever.
Disappointed with her happily never after, Giselle returns to Andalasia for help but she accidentally transforms her suburban town into a real life fairy tale, where she becomes the evil stepmother.
The princess is in a race against time to reverse the spell and return the town to normal.
Disenchanted is directed by Adam Shankman, who also helmed 2007’s Hairspray and another long-awaited sequel, Hocus Pocus 2.
The screenplay was penned by Brigitte Hales and a story by J. David Stem & David N. Weiss, and Richard LaGravenese.
For the uninitiated, Enchanted followed princess Giselle (Adams) in the fairytale world of Andalasia.
When she's set to marry her charming Prince Edward (Marsden), his wicked stepmother (brilliantly played by Susan Sarandon) banishes Giselle to the hustle and bustle of 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.
Disenchanted was finally confirmed by Disney in 2020 during Disney Investor Day, alongside a stack of other upcoming titles.
In the 15 years that have passed since Enchanted’s release in 2007, Menzel also became a Disney princess by providing the voice for Elsa in the phenomenon known as Frozen.
Enchanted was a huge success and grossed more than £245m world wide. It was also nominated for for three Best Song Oscars for 'Happy Working Song', 'So Close' and 'That's How You Know'.
We cannot WAIT for this!
Disenchanted will be released 18 November on Disney+
