Its title is ‘Disenchanted’, and it was announced last Investor Day.

Years before the thunderous success of Frozen, the increasingly vindicable Enchanted. Giselle’s story already gracefully dismantled the gender dynamics in Disney classics, following a cartoon princess who came to our world. Giselle, played by Amy Adams, discovered the impostures of her way of life while spouting a hilarious film whose sequel was not announced until 13 years after its premiere: in December 2020, during Disney’s grueling Investor Day, it was confirmed that it would have a second part, as would Sister Act and The Return of the Witches.

If nothing changes Enchanted 2 (whose title is Disenchanted ) will be released directly on Disney +, and apparently, it has already started shooting in Ireland. A few weeks ago, several media reported that the film had signed Yvette Nicole Brown, Jayma Mays, and Maya Rudolph, and today the latter has confirmed her participation as the villain of the story, without giving more details about the character. Rudolph, the recurring face of Saturday Night Live whom we have seen in the cinema in My Best Friend’s Wedding, is a perfect signing due to his ability to alternate between comedy and musical, which would once again be central in Disenchanted.

“If 15 years ago someone had asked me to play the villain, I would have said ‘mmm I’m not sure.’ But over the years I have learned that this is the most fun you can do, “says Rudolph in an interview for Variety. The actress would replace Susan Sarandon as the villain, who in the 2007 film played the evil Queen Narissa, and joins a cast where Amy Adams is back in the company of Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, and Idina Menzel. Alan Menken also returns as a composer, but not the director Kevin Lima, replaced by Adam Shankman ( Hairspray ).
