Fifteen years ago, Enchanted captured the hearts of audiences, and fans were wondering if we would ever see Giselle on screen again. The answer is yes. At the most recent D23 expo, Disney finally released our first look at just what Giselle has been up to since the first film’s events, and it seems her “Happily-Ever-After” has a few hiccups. Disenchanted brings Amy Adams and most of the first film’s cast back to reprise their respective roles, with a few newcomers like Maya Rudolph joining in.
The official synopsis gives us real insight:
“It has been 15 years since Giselle (Amy Adams) and Robert (Patrick Dempsey) wed, but Giselle has grown disillusioned with life in the city, so they move their growing family to the sleepy suburban community of Monroeville in search of a more fairy tale life. Unfortunately, it isn’t the quick fix she had hoped for. Suburbia has a whole new set of rules and a local queen bee, Malvina Monroe (Maya Rudolph), who makes Giselle feel more out of place than ever. Frustrated that her happily ever after hasn’t been so easy to find, she turns to the magic of Andalasia for help, accidentally transforming the entire town into a real-life fairy tale and placing her family’s future happiness in jeopardy. Now, Giselle is in a race against time to reverse the spell and determine what happily ever after truly means to her and her family.”
Unfortunately, Disenchanted won’t be getting the big-screen treatment, it’s heading straight to Disney+. You can catch the much-awaited sequel on November 24.
