After 15 years of waiting, the sequel to the Disney film “Enchanted” — aptly named “Disenchanted” — is here!
In 2007, the original “Enchanted” film took the typical princess film and flipped it on its head when the animated princess Giselle came out of her cartoon world of Andalasia and into the live-action city of New York. The movie provided complex satire about many tired princess film tropes: true love, fantasy, musical numbers, and the list goes on. The film exploded and is loved by critics and audiences alike.
The sequel was in the works for a long time, and the cast — including Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, Idina Menzel, and James Marsden — had long been thrilled about the prospect of returning to their classic characters. “Disenchanted” catches up with Giselle 15 years after “Enchanted,” when she and her family move to a suburb called Monroeville, where she confronts what true happiness means to her. When she wishes her life were like a perfect fairy tale, she unwittingly sends the real world and her former home of Andalasia into a tailspin.
Here’s a look back at what the cast were up to when the first film was released and how they’re faring now 15 years later.
