A rumored sequel to 2007 Disney flick "Enchanted" has been in the works for close to a decade, but now, it looks like the follow-up is finally happening: The film's director just revealed that a script for the movie is almost finished.
In an interview with SlashFilm, Adam Shankman ("Hairspray") updated fans on the new flick, which is titled "Disenchanted." While the sequel has been in various stages of development for years, and gone through at least one director change (Anne Fletcher, who helmed "The Proposal," was previously reportedly attached), Shankman said the concept for the follow-up remains mostly the same.
"It's about Giselle 10 years later going, 'What is happily ever after?'" Shankman told SlashFilm.
"Enchanted" starred Amy Adams as Giselle, an animated princess from a stereotypical fairytale land, who thinks she's met her soulmate in Prince Edward (James Marsden). But when an evil queen (Susan Sarandon) banishes her to New York City, she meets and falls in love with a divorce lawyer named Robert (Patrick Dempsey).
The original was a delightful spoof of Disney films, and featured both animation and lavish musical numbers. Both will also be present in the new movie, too, according to Shankman.
"There's a lot more songs this time than there were in the original, at least in the planning phase right now," the director revealed to SlashFilm. " ... We are handing in a script in a couple weeks that I'm super happy with. Then gotta get the music written."
Here's hoping that the film finally gets the royal seal of approval from Disney. Stay tuned.
