That’s a wrap on the long-awaited Disney sequel, Disenchanted, with director Adam Shankman taking to social media to confirm the news. The filmmaker shared a wholesome image of himself holding hands with lead actress Amy Adams, and also took the time to reveal that the movie will indeed arrive on Disney+ sometime in 2022.
Released back in 2007, the first Enchanted acts as both an homage and parody of the classic Disney movies and princesses of old. The story begins with Amy Adams’ Princess Giselle being banished from her kingdom by her lover’s evil stepmother. Transported into the real world, specifically New York City, Giselle must navigate her way through a reality that lacks singing animals and other such wonders in order to find a way to get home. Things become complicated however when Giselle meets a lawyer, Robert (Patrick Dempsey), and finds herself falling for him.
Several details have now been released regarding the Disney follow-up, with Disenchanted due to take place fifteen years after the first movie, with Giselle having moved 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.
However, Giselle, Robert, and Morgan’s new suburban life may not turn out to be as idyllic as they’d hoped, as the community is overseen by Malvina Monroe, who has nefarious intentions for the family. When problems arise, Giselle wishes that their lives were the perfect fairytale. The spell backfires, with Giselle rushing to save her family, and her homeland of the Kingdom of Andalasia before the clock strikes midnight.
The cast meanwhile will be comprised of several familiar faces from the first movie, with Amy Adams returning as Giselle, Patrick Dempsey as Giselle’s husband Robert, James Marsden as Prince Edward, and Frozen star Idina Menzel as Nancy Tremaine, who is now married to Prince Edward. New cast members include Maya Rudolph, who is set to play the villain, Malvina, with Oscar Nunez and Kolton Stewart also having now been added to the cast, with the latter playing Malvina’s son. Newcomer Gabriella Baldacchino will make her feature film debut in Disenchanted, starring in a pivotal role as Morgan, Robert’s daughter. Yvette Nicole Brown and Jayma Mays were previously announced, and while we now know that they will star as Rosaleen and Ruby respectively, it has not yet been confirmed whether they will also star as villains as previously theorized.
On the musical side, Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz are returning to write the movie’s songs, with Menken also set to compose the score. With production having now wrapped, it shouldn’t be too long before we get a better look at the sequel, and can judge whether the team have once again managed to capture the same magic. Disenchanted is scheduled to be released in the United States on an unspecified date in 2022, as a Disney+ exclusive movie.

I updated the video vault with a bunch of interviews through talk-shows and online platforms, that Amy Adams did as promotion for “The Woman in the Window”, take a look!
Variety reports that production companies fronted by Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal have landed adaptive rights to scientist Suzanne Simard’s memoir “Finding the Mother Tree.”
In a competitive situation, Adams’ Bond Group Entertainment and Gyllenhaal’s Nine Stories scored the the book, published today via Knopf. The project is being developed by both companies with Adams set to star.
Recounting her groundbreaking and once-ridiculed research, the book is described as a dazzling scientific detective story about the woman who first discovered how trees communicate underground through an immense web of fungi. Simard’s work has been praised as having “planetary significance,” and is said to have influenced creative works including James Cameron’s “Avatar” (the Tree of Souls) and author Richard Powers.Adams and Bond Group co-founder Stacy O’Neil said the book “excited us with a narrative about the awe-invoking power of nature and the compelling parallels in Suzanne’s personal life. It forever transformed our views of the world and the interconnectivity of our environment. ‘Finding the Mother Tree’ is not only a deeply beautiful memoir about one woman’s impactful life, it’s also a call to action to protect, understand and connect with the natural world.”
Gyllenhaal and his Nine Stories partner Riva Marker called the project “part charming memoir, part crash course in forest ecology. And yet, it manages to be about the things that matter most: the ways we care for each other, fail each other and listen to each other. After the last year and a half, its lessons about motherhood, connection and the natural world are more timely than ever, and we are thrilled to partner with Amy, Stacy and their company, and Suzanne Simard to adapt this majestic story to film.”
Adams and O’Neil and Gyllenhaal and Marker will produce the project, with Noah Stahl overseeing for Nine Stories and Kate Clifford for Bond Group Entertainment. A distributor has not yet been set.
I added more posters, behind the scenes and stills photos of Amy Adams from The Woman in the Window. The movie is scheduled to be released online on Netflix on May 14, 2021.
Amy Adams never planned to take on so many dark, gritty roles. After all, she first became known for playing sweet and innocent characters in movies such as Junebug, Enchanted and Doubt. “I intend to do something light, but I keep being offered these beautifully complex roles,” says the actress, 46, whose later performances include well-reviewed turns in The Master, Nocturnal Animals and Sharp Objects. “I don’t know what it says about me, that I’m really attracted to the psychology of [people’s] damage,” she told Parade during a recent COVID-safe Zoom from her home in Los Angeles, where she’s been isolating with her husband, artist Darren Le Gallo, and their daughter, Aviana, 10.
Enter her next tense psychological thriller, The Woman in the Window (May 14 on Netflix). She’ll star as Anna Fox, a woman questioning her own reality as she struggles with her mental health and agoraphobia, with an intense fear of being outside her New York City brownstone apartment. When Anna thinks she witnesses a murder while watching her new neighbors from her window, she is forced to confront the traumas of her own life. The film takes on new significance since nearly everyone has spent the previous year in some kind of state of quarantine, peering out of windows themselves. “Given how isolated we’ve all been, I’m curious to see people’s response to the film,” she says. “If it’s more triggering, or if they have more empathy.”
The Woman in the Window, based on the New York Times bestselling novel by A.J. Finn (the pen name of writer Daniel Malloy), also stars Julianne Moore, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Gary Oldman. It was directed by Joe Wright, who is so consumed by detail, he had Adams run up and down the stairs more than 25 times while hyperventilating. Wright “wanted it to feel like a fever dream of anxiety, and that’s what it felt like,” she says.
But making the movie wasn’t all dark and heavy. “Any time you work with me, there’s a blooper reel,” Adams says, adding that her mistakes usually involve her cursing like a sailor when she messes up. When she had forgotten her daughter was on set one day and she messed up a lot, well, that was the day “we started a swear jar,” she says with a laugh.
