At the Disney Upfront panel this afternoon, Disney revealed the very first take a look at the long-awaited Captivated follow up, Disenchanted. The picture provides a glance at the initial movies star Amy Adams, in addition to a newbie to the franchise in Maya Rudolph. If the outfits are any sign, Andalasia and its residents havent lost an action given that audiences initially took a trip there in 2008.

Adams will naturally be repeating her function as Giselle, though this attire appears a far cry from her infant blue gown in the initial. Rudolph is depicting a character called Malvina Monroe, who is the overseer of a neighborhood referred to as Monroeville. It seems like she will be the primary villain of the movie, much in the exact same method that Susan Sarandon remained in the initial. Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, and Idina Menzel will all be repeating their particular functions. Newbies to the cast consist of Yvette Nicole Brown (Neighborhood), Jayma Mays (Glee), and Oscar Nunez (The Office).


Its difficult to envision that a starlet of Adamss quality will have missed out on a beat from the initial, and a skill like Rudolph will certainly consume the screen in this atrocious function. While maybe not the most initial plot, the acting, tunes, and brand-new comical skill in the type of Brown, Nunez, and Mays, might actually offer households a good vacation present in this long-awaited follow up.

A follow up for Captivated has actually remained in the works given that 2010, with Anne Fletcher (27 Gowns) set to direct and a 2011 release date on the horizon. Obviously, that timeframe reoccured, with the studio having a hard time to record the story for Giselles next experience. Disenchanted was formally revealed at Disney Financier Day in 2020, with Disney+ acting as an ideal opportunity for the long-delayed follow up (the original was launched in 2007).

Adam Shankman (Rock of Ages, Bedtime Stories) is taking control of directing tasks from Kevin Lima. He likewise contributed to composing the movie script together with Brigitte Hales, Richard LaGravenese, Scott Neustadter, and Michael H. Weber. Disney pillar Alan Menken has actually gone back to deal with the music for the follow up, having actually been chosen for 3 various tunes in the Best Initial Tune classification for the initial in 2007.

Disenchanted will strike Disney+ on Thanksgiving later on this year. Heres the main summary for Disenchanted:

“Ten years after her happily ever after, Giselle (Adams), Robert (Dempsey), and Morgan (Gabriella Baldacchino) move to a new house in the suburb of Monroeville. The community is overseen by Malvina Monroe (Rudolph), who has nefarious intentions for the family. When problems arise, Giselle wishes that their lives were the perfect fairy tale. The spell backfires, with Giselle rushing to save her family and her homeland of the kingdom of Andalasia before the clock strikes midnight.”
