Disenchanted is only a couple of months away and we finally have the first trailer for the long-awaited sequel to Disenchanted.
The trailer debuted at the d23 expo on September 9th, and while it contained no song trailers, it did reveal an important plot point: it looks like Giselle could become the evil stepmother!
We’ll have to wait and see how it plays out when Disenchanted premieres on Disney+ in November. It’s not too bad of a wait as the sequel was first confirmed over a decade ago, so a couple of months is nothing for delighted fans.
While we wait, though, here’s everything you need to know about Disenchanted, aka Enchanted 2.

disenchanted cast: who’s coming back for haunted 2?
Unsurprisingly, Amy Adams is back as Giselle in the sequel, but that shouldn’t surprise us too much.
Back in 2016, when director Adam Shankman first signed on, Amy Adams said she “won’t let anyone else play Giselle” and confirmed in 2018 that she’s still “absolutely up for it” if the sequel goes ahead.
She’s not the only returning original star, as she’ll be joined by Patrick Dempsey as Robert, James Marsden as Prince Edward, and Idina Menzel as Nancy.
Thanks to the reshoots, we got our first look at Adams and Dempsey as Giselle and Robert, so you can enjoy them again below if you missed them the first time.
Gabriella Baldacchino will play Robert’s grown daughter Morgan, while other newcomers include Maya Rudolph as Giselle’s new nemesis Malvina, Kolton Stewart as Malvina’s son, Yvette Nicole Brown as Rosalyn, Jayma Mays as Ruby and Oscar Nunez as Edgar.
the trailer gave us some hints about rudolph’s villain, who seems to be the main person in monroeville and clashes with giselle when she moves to the suburb. In May 2021, Rudolph revealed that he may not have always accepted the role.
“If this had been 15 years ago and someone had asked me if I wanted to be the bad guy, I might have said, ‘Gee, I don’t know,'” he said. “But I’ve come to learn in my many years that the most fun you can have is when you can play the most.”
Behind the scenes, Hairspray’s Adam Shankman is directing the film, while enchanted duo Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz are back with new songs for the sequel.
disenchanted plot: what is enchanted 2 about?
With the release of the first trailer, we have a new disenchanted synopsis:
“it’s been 15 years since giselle and robert were married, but giselle has become disillusioned with life in the city, so they move their growing family to the quiet suburban community of monroeville in search of a life more of fairy tale,” says lee
“unfortunately not the quick fix i was hoping for. suburbia has a new set of rules and a local queen bee, malvina monroe, 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 putting future happiness in jeopardy. of his family.
“Now, Giselle is in a race against time to reverse the spell and determine what happily ever after really means for her and her family.”
In September 2021, Adams teased that the sequel features “a lot more singing and a lot more dancing,” which had a particular drawback. “The last time I really danced as far as it takes to dance on this, I was 20, and now I’m not 20,” he said.
“It feels different than 40. In my heart, I look like I’m 20 when I’m dancing, and then I’d look at the playback and say, ‘Wow, that’s not the same.'”
Speaking of singing, Disenchanted will also fix a mistake from the first movie and have Menzel sing after he had his number removed from the first movie. Dempsey will also sing in the film, marking her first time doing so.
“I’m going to sing for the first time. I’ve never sung in public, for a reason. So bear with me,” he said. “I hope the fans will accept it, but they have set me up for success and the lyrics are really funny.”
disenchanted will premiere on disney+ on november 24, while enchanted can already be seen.
