In 2011, a sequel to the film, which followed Giselle, an animated princess parody of the familiar tropes of classic Disney princess movies, was confirmed as she is suddenly thrust into the real world.
But now, more than a decade later. The world of possibilities opened by the previous film’s ending will be entered. So, without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about the film’s upcoming release.

On November 24, 2022, Disenchanted will premiere exclusively on Disney+.
The movie was once again confirmed in 2020 by a tweet from Disney. Despite the sequel already having a decade-long confirmation history.
Soon after, Adam Shankman, best known for his work on Hairspray and Bedtime Stories, was announced as the film’s director.
Who will appear in Enchanted 2: Disenchanted?
Amy Adams will return as Giselle and Patrick Dempsey as Robert Phillip.
Idina Menzel will return as Nancy Tremaine, and James Marsden will reprise his role as Prince Edward.
Rachel Covey will be replaced as Robert Philip’s daughter Morgan by Gabriella Baldacchino, but Covey will appear in archival footage.
Unfortunately, Susan Sarandon’s villain Queen Narissa will not be returning after her death in the first film, but Maya Rudolph will play the new villain Malvina Monroe.
Among the new Disenchanted cast members are:
Yvette Nicole Brown plays Rosaleen.
Kolton Stewart plays Tyson Monroe.
Jayma Mays play Ruby.
Edgard is played by Oscar Nuez.
Malvina Monroe’s son, played by Kolton Stewart
Disenchanted plot: What is the story of Enchanted 2?
According to the official plot synopsis for Disenchanted on IMDb, “Ten years after her happily ever after, Giselle questions her happiness, inadvertently turning the lives of those in the real world and Andalasia upside down.”
So it appears that this film will ultimately challenge the concept of “happily ever after,” which seems appropriate for such a franchise. The film will follow Giselle and her husband Robert, as well as their stepdaughter Morgan, as they relocate to a suburb, and Giselle struggles to accept her place in everyday life.
Disney Insider recently released a more extensive, more spoilers plot synopsis, so proceed with caution before reading on!
Despite a more introspective storyline, Amy Adams has confirmed that there will be more singing and dancing than in the original film.
She commented on the arduous training for the film’s musical numbers during an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, saying, “There’s a lot more singing and a lot more dancing, which was humbling.”
“The last time I saw you. I was in my twenties and really danced as much as I’m required to dance in this. Now I’m not in my 20s.” It’s different in your forties. When I’m dancing, I feel like I’m in my 20s, and then I watch the replay and think, ‘Whoa, that’s not the same!””
Disenchanted trailer: Is there an Enchanted two trailer?
Unfortunately, there is no official Disenchanted trailer, though some promotional images are out for fans.
