Late last year, Disney announced Disenchanted, the sequel to Disney’s 2007 movie Enchanted. Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey both confirmed early on that they would be part on the project, Idina Menzel and James Marsden will appear in the film as well.

In a recent Zoom interview with JLGB Virtual, composer Alan Menken confirmed the return of  Menzel and Marsden.

“Amy Adams is in it. Patrick is in it. Idina Menzel is in it. James Marsden – they’re in it,” said Menken.

Menken said he is writing songs for the new movies and that “it’s filming,” and so far its “really good.”

Adam Shankman, who directed Hairspray and the upcoming Hocus Pocus sequel, is directing. They are filming in Ireland and Los Angeles and are set to wrap in August. When it’s released, the movie will air on Disney+.

The original Enchanted followed the animated woman, Giselle (Adams) as she accidentally fell into real life New York City where she meets a cynical lawyer named Robert (Dempsey). Robert is dating Nancy (Menzel).

Giselle’s love interest, Prince Edward (Marsden), follows her into the real world to try and save her. But by the end of the movie, Giselle falls in love with Robert and Prince Edward falls in love with Nancy. Both couples get their happily ever after, in the real and animated worlds.
