The Trailer for Disney's Long-Awaited 'Enchanted' Sequel is Finally Here

·2 min read

We've been waiting for this one!

The long-awaited sequel to Disney's 2007 film Enchanted is finally here! Well, almost.  

Fans of the original film have been anticipating this moment for over a decade, ever since the sequel was first announced in early 2010. Unfortunately, it never seemed to make any progress. 

It wasn't until early 2021 that production began, and now there are just a couple of short months left before Disenchanted premieres at last on Disney+ on Nov. 24, 2022. Luckily the trailer was released yesterday, Sept. 9, after premiering at the D23 Expo, to tide us over. 

Enchanted stars Amy Adams as Giselle, a young woman who falls in love with a prince (James Marsden) in their cartoon, fairytale land. But the prince's evil stepmother (Susan Sarandon) isn't pleased about the impending nuptials and whisks Giselle off to a place with no happy ever afters: Manhattan. There she meets Robert (Patrick Dempsey), who does his best to help the eccentric stranger find her way home. 

Ultimately, Giselle discovers that her happy ending isn't what she thought it was, and that she's been home all along. 

Now, it looks like that happily ever after may be at risk. 

The trailer shows Giselle and Robert, along with Robert's daughter, Morgan, and their new baby, 15 years after the events of the first film. The family is headed out of the busy city for a more subdued life in a suburban fixer-upper. 

It's unclear why exactly they're moving, but there's definitely some trepidation surrounding it. 

"I know that change can be scary," Giselle's voice speaks out over the beginning of the trailer, "but it can also be exciting." 

Robert then tells her, "If I've learned anything from meeting the princess on the billboard, it's that sometimes you just have to take a leap." 

But trouble awaits them, and when Giselle makes a wish for their lives to be the fairytale she'd always dreamed of, things get even worse when she becomes the evil stepmother she used to fear. 

But hey, what's life without a little drama?

The trailer promises music, magic, and mayhem, but it's still TBD if Giselle will settle into her new life of villainy or fix things before it's too late. 

Marsden and Idina Menzel, who plays Nancy in the series, return as well, with Maya Rudolph, Yvette Nicole Brown, and newcomer Gabriella Baldacchino joining the cast.
