Amy Adams has shared some new details on 2007’s Enchanted sequel “Disenchanted.” The actress recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where she revealed, “We filmed it in Ireland. Everyone is back. We also have great additions to the cast. We have Maya Rudolph. She plays the ‘baddie,’ so we get to have a lot of fun together.”
Adams also promises the sequel will feature more singing and dancing.
“There’s a lot more singing and a lot more dancing which was humbling,” said Adams. “The last time I really danced as much as I’m required to dance in this, I was in my 20s and now I’m not in my 20s. It feels different in your 40s. In my heart, I look like I’m in my 20s when I’m dancing, and then I would watch playback and be like, ‘Whoa, that’s not the same.'”

The movie will see the return of several characters from the original film including Giselle (Amy Adams), Robert (Patrick Dempsey), Prince Edward (James Marsden), and Nancy Tremaine (Idina Menzel).

“Disenchanted” features the much-anticipated return of Giselle, the princess from the fairy tale world of Andalasia banished to Manhattan who found her real Princess Charming in divorce lawyer Robert Philip. 15 years later, Giselle moves 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.
Adam Shankman (Hairspray) is directing. Brigette Hales is attached as a writer. Barry Josephson is producing. Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz have also returned to write new songs for the film.
Patrick Dempsey will reportedly be making his singing debut in the film, Idina Menzel will have a major solo number, and the Seven Dwarfs will appear in a big musical number.
