Everything We Know About Disenchanted So Far

by Disney Disillusionedthe long-awaited sequel to the 2007 fantasy musical Nice to meet you starring Amy Adams, is set to be released. Nice to meet you was a smash hit in 2007, adapting the genre to include both live-action and traditionally animated parodies of archetypal fairy tale princesses. Produced by Disney, it usually paid homage to classic Disney Princess musicals such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beautyand White as snow, while satirizing their recurring tropes. With Disillusioned scheduled for the fall, the world needs Giselle (Adams) more than ever.

Nice to meet you follows Giselle, a lively and conventional princess from fictional Andalusia, who is pushed into a well by an evil witch. Suddenly thrown into a live-action version of herself in New York, she is found and cared for by Robert (Partick Dempsey), whom she falls in love with instead of her animated prince charming, Edward (James Marsden), and her young daughter, Morgan (Rachel Covey). The film ends with the witch destroyed, Edward and Nancy (Robert’s fashion designer girlfriend, played by Idina Menzel) returning to Andalusia, and Giselle remaining in New York, married to Robert and running a fashion business. Disillusioned resumes 15 years after these events.
