One of this year’s most eagerly awaited Disney+ Original films is “Disenchanted”, which is a sequel to the smash-hit film, “Enchanted”, which saw Giselle, played by Amy Addams, who found her life flipped upside down when she fell out of her animated fantasy world and discovered herself stuck in real-life Manhattan.
“Disenchanted” features the much-anticipated return of Giselle, the princess from the fairy tale world of Andalasia banished to Manhattan who found her real Princess Charming in divorce lawyer Robert Philip. 15 years later, Giselle moves to the suburb of Monroeville with Robert and their teenage daughter Morgan, where she must juggle the challenges that come with a new home and discover what happily ever after truly means to her and her new family.
The DisInsider is reporting that reshoots on the Disney+ Original film are expected to begin next month in New York City.
Reshoots are a common occurrence while making a film and it’s been reported that the reshoots are required because the early test screenings were resulting in mixed reactions.
It’s unclear how long these reshoots will be taking place for and if these will have an impact on the film’s release on Disney+, which is scheduled for later this year.
“Disenchanted” will feature new songs from Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, whose work on “Enchanted” garnered three Academy Award nominations.
In the new film, Patrick Dempsey (“Grey’s Anatomy”) is returning as Giselle’s husband, along with the cynical pragmatist Robert Philip; James Marsden (“X-Men”) as the dashing but daft Prince Edward from Andalasia; Idina Menzel (“Frozen”) as Nancy Tremaine, the former dress maker now married to Prince Edward.
Also joining the cast are Maya Rudolph (“Saturday Night Live”) as Malvina, Giselle’s new adversary in Monroeville; Kolton Stewart (Nickelodeon’s “Some Assembly Required”) as Malvina’s son; Yvette Nicole Brown (“Lady and the Tramp”) as Rosalyn; Jayma Mays (“Glee”) as Ruby; Oscar Nunez (“The Office”) as Edgar; and introduces Gabriella Baldacchino as Robert Philip’s now grown daughter, Morgan. Baldacchino, a 19-year-old from Glen Rock, New Jersey, makes her feature film debut in “Disenchanted.”
The film is being directed by Adam Shankman (“Hairspray,” “The Wedding Planner”) and produced by Barry Josephson (“Enchanted,” TV’s “Bones”).
