Disney held a special premiere event in Hollywood at the El Capitan Theatre for the new Disney+ Original film, “Disenchanted”, which was attended by the cast and filmmakers.
To help usher in the holiday season and support Disney’s Ultimate Toy Drive, premiere guests filled Toys for Tots bins located on the blue carpet with new, unwrapped toys, which will help inspire hope where it is needed the most this holiday season.
In attendance were Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, Maya Rudolph, Idina Menzel, James Marsden, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jayma Mays, Gabriella Baldacchino, Oscar Nunez, Kolton Stewart, and Griffin Newman, as well as director Adam Shankman, screenwriter Brigitte Hales, producer Barry Josephson, and composer/song writer Alan Menken. Joining them were guests including, Darren Criss, Rachel Covey, Spencer Stevenson and Riele Downs.
It has been more than ten years since Giselle (Adams) and Robert (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 (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.
