Adams and Patrick Dempsey have been confirmed to reprise their “Enchanted” roles in the sequel, as well as James Marsden and Idina Menzel as Prince Edward and Robert’s ex-girlfriend turned Edward’s wife and Queen of Andalasia, Nancy Tremaine, respectively. Don’t worry, it’s also been confirmed that Menzel will get to show off her trademark belt that was wholly underutilized in “Enchanted” but shown off in “Frozen.” Gabriella Baldacchino (“Ask for Jane”) is taking over the role of Morgan for “Disenchanted,” with Yvette Nicole Brown (“Community”), Jayma Mays (“Glee”), and Maya Rudolph (“Saturday Night Live”) as a trio of villains.
Hereâ€™s your 🤩FIRST LOOK🤩 at Amy Adams and Maya Rudolph in Disneyâ€™s #Disenchanted.

Disney+ gave us the first look at Giselle and Rudolph’s characters, with both performers looking like drop-dead perfection. Amy Adams with a peacock collar is not something I knew I needed in my life, but now that I’ve seen the preview, I will not rest until “Disenchanted” drops and I can properly gush over the perfect costuming. Maya Rudolph looks to be channeling Bernadette Peters’ evil stepmother in the Rodgers & Hammerstein version of “Cinderella” starring Brandy and Whitney Houston, and I mean that as the ultimate compliment.
“Disenchanted” is being directed by Adam Shankman (“Hairspray,” “So You Think You Can Dance”) so I’m already anticipating show-stopping dance numbers, and with Disney legend Alan Menken returning for the music, I can’t wait to annoy everyone in my apartment building by singing the new tunes at the top of my lungs the same way I did with “That’s How You Know.”
“Disenchanted” will be available to stream on Disney+ on Thursday, November 24, 2022.
