Alan Menken to score Disney’s fantasy sequel DISENCHANTED

DISENCHANTED is an upcoming live-action/animated musical fantasy romantic comedy film written and directed by Adam Shankman (HAIRSPRAY, THE WEDDING PLANNER) and produced by Barry Josephson (ENCHANTED, TV’s BONES)as a sequel to the 2007 film ENCHANTED. Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, and Idina Menzel reprise their roles from the first film, with Gabriella Baldacchino replacing Rachel Covey. They are joined by newcomers Maya Rudolph, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jayma Mays, Oscar Nunez, and Griffin Newman.

Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz return, as the film’s songwriters, and Menken again composing the score; their work on ENCHANTED garnered three Academy Award nominations.

The story takes place ten years after her happily ever after, with Giselle questioning her happiness and inadvertently turning the lives of those in the real world and Andalasia upside down in the process. Wishing that their lives were the perfect fairy tale, the spell backfires, with Giselle rushing to save her family and her homeland of the Kingdom of Andalasia before the clock strikes midnight.

The film is scheduled to premiere exclusively on Disney+ on November 24, 2022 (Thanksgiving day).
