Disney Surprises ‘Disenchanted’ Fans With Date Change

Princess Giselle and Enchanted enthusiasts have already been eagerly anticipating the Disney princess movie sequel that took 14 years to make, which is called Disenchanted and is finally coming to Disney+ for its big debut after lackluster reactions led to reshoots.

Now, it looks like another change is coming — but this one might actually bring the movie to its fans sooner rather than later, which will be a pleasant surprise considering how many delays the Disenchanted movie has experienced!

The original release date for Disenchanted was announced during the 2022 D23 Expo in Anaheim, and was said to be November 24, 2022. Now, it looks like that release date is actually coming sooner instead — which is a real novelty in the movie-making business, and even more so for the very-long-awaited sequel to the beloved film about an animated Disney princess who magically travels to our world and falls in love!

This new sequel will now be arriving on Disney+, and enchanting viewers (pun intended), on November 18, 2022! The movie Disenchanted features Saturday Night Live comedian Maya Rudolph as the villain Malvina Monroe — but there’s a twist: when Giselle tries to make her new suburban life (with her new husband Robert) more like her dream fairy tale and happily ever after, Giselle actually seems to become a villain herself!

Take a look at the trailer here to see Giselle acting villainous (and Amy Adams showing off her acting range)! In the sequel, Giselle is her usual happy self initially — albeit with her new husband (played by newly-inaugurated-Disney-Legend Patrick Dempsey), a new stepdaughter played by Gabriella Baldacchino (presumably because the original actress, Rachel Covey, is no longer young enough to play the character), and her own new baby.

But trying to fit in within a suburban environment that is run by the scheming Malvina Monroe is not easy for Giselle, and she will have to fix the damage that she does after making a magical wish that threatens her happy ending!

Just like the original 2007 movie, Disenchanted will involve lots of singing, Disney princess jokes, and (much to Amy Adams’ chagrin) dancing. Fan favorites James Marsden and Idina Menzel will also be back in their roles — and time will tell if Disney princess actress Jodi Benson makes another cameo!

Are you excited to see Disenchanted, no matter when it comes out? Do you count the original Enchanted movie among your favorite Disney princess movies, and among your favorite Amy Adams or Patrick Dempsey projects?
