The magical teaser trailer for the all-new live-action musical comedy Disenchanted took a royal bow at the D23 Expo 2022 in the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday. The film begins streaming 24 November, exclusively on Disney+.
This sequel to Enchanted (2007) reunites original cast members Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, Idina Menzel and James Marsden and also stars Maya Rudolph, Gabriella Baldacchino, Yvette Nicole Brown and Jayma Mays, is directed by Adam Shankman and features new songs from Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz.
Here’s the official synopsis: It has been 15 years since Giselle (Amy Adams) and Robert (Patrick Dempsey) wed, but Giselle has grown disillusioned with life in the city, so they move their growing family to the sleepy suburban community of Monroeville in search of a more fairy tale life. Unfortunately, it isn’t the quick fix she had hoped for. Suburbia has a whole new set of rules and a local queen bee, Malvina Monroe (Maya Rudolph), 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 placing her family’s future happiness in jeopardy. Now, Giselle is in a race against time to reverse the spell and determine what happily ever after truly means to her and her family.
Directed by Shankman from a screenplay by Brigitte Hales and a story by J. David Stem and David N. Weiss and Richard LaGravenese, Disenchanted is produced by Barry Josephson, Barry Sonnenfeld and Amy Adams, with Jo Burn, Sunil Perkash and Shankman serving as executive producers. The movie features songs with music by eight-time Oscar-winning composer Menken and lyrics by three-time Oscar-winning lyricist Schwartz, whose work on Enchanted garnered three Academy Award nominations, and a score by Menken.
