An update on the status of an Enchanted sequel has arisen from the depths of the film’s development from the film’s director, Adam Shankman, revealing that the project is finally moving along.
The follow-up, which has been in development since 2010, will be titled Disenchanted
Whilst on the Television Critics panel for Step Up: High Water, the YouTube Red series he is producing based on the Step Up films, Shankman divulged the information of where the production stands at this point and what we can expect to see if the final script is greenlit.
“We are handing in a script in a couple weeks that I’m super happy with,” Shankman said, “Then gotta get the music written.”
“The fundamental story has changed a little bit, but not from the base story of it, It’s about Giselle 10 years later going, ‘What is happily ever after?’”
“There’s a lot more songs this time than there were in the original, at least in the planning phase right now,” Shankman said.
“As for the animation, it’s probably about the same amount,” he said.
Enchanted was a musical fantasy romantic comedy produced by Walt Disney Pictures with New York Academy Barry Sonnenfeld and Josephson Entertainment. Written by Bill Kelly and directed by Kevin Lima. The film starred Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel, Rachel Covey, and Susan Sarandon. The plot focused on Giselle, an archetypal Disney Princess, who is forced from her traditional animated world of Andalasia into the live-action world of New York City. Enchanted was the first Disney film to be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, instead of Buena Vista Pictures Distribution.
No update on a proposed release date was forthcoming.
