Enchanted 2 is still happening because money


Wait…”still”? Yes, a sequel to the 2007 Disney Princess film Enchanted has been in the works for some time now, but it hasn’t progressed passed the “it should happen” stage. But now that Frozen was a mega hit for Disney, they’ve taken concrete steps to get a sequel going as they hire on J. David Stern and David N. Weiss to write the script.

The duo has written a bunch of somewhat bad family films (The Smurfs, Shrek 2, The Rugrats Movie) so the positive side of me wants to say they’re overdue for a good one while the rational side of me thinks they should just leave well enough alone. Disney Princess films getting sequels isn’t a new thing, but I kind of hope Enchanted 2 doesn’t happen. The first film was a nice experiment (as it ridiculed Disney’s troupes) with a good cast, but there’s no way a sequel could work that same magic again. We’ll keep an eye on this as it develops.
