This Thanksgiving, Disney+ is releasing a brand new film, “Disenchanted”, the sequel to the hit film, “Enchanted”.
“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.
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.
Yvette Nicole Brown is going to be starring in this film and playing the role of Rosalyn. She recently spoke with E! News about appearing in the series.
“It’s just gonna be a wonderful romp through Ireland.”
“We were in Ireland last summer for three months, and it’s a love letter to those that love the original Enchanted. And I am one of those fans that was waiting forever, and I can’t believe that I get to be in the sequel.”
Yvette also revealed some backstage news from the film of how they would fill time:
“Everybody that was on the set can sing, and our director Adam Shankman played music in between each take. Amy Adams and Maya Rudolph would just start doing two-part harmony—I tried to get in, Jayma would get in. So, it was just a lot of fun, just lovely people.”
“Disenchanted” will also star Maya Rudolph (“Saturday Night Live”) as Malvina, Giselle’s new adversary in Monroeville; Kolton Stewart (Nickelodeon’s “Some Assembly Required”) as Malvina’s son; 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”).
“Disenchanted” will feature new songs from Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, whose work on “Enchanted” garnered three Academy Award nominations.
The original “Enchanted” is available to stream on Disney+ now.
