'Enchanted' Sequel 'Disenchanted' Release Date & News: Amy Adams Believe Disney Film Is 'What The World Needs Now'

Disney's "Disenchanted," the follow up to the 2007 film "Enchanted," is going to be an antidote to what's happening in the world right now. The movie's lead actress, Amy Adams, expressed that such a feel-good fairy tale movie is ripe and ready for another installment.

Disney announced that the production of "Disenchanted" is already being cooked up and will likely begin rolling in the summer of 2017, with a targeted 2018 theater release. The studio has already hired "Hairspray" musical director Adam Shankman to helm the sequel based on a script written by David Stem and David Weiss, The Hollywood Reporter cites.

"I think a little singing and dancing, a little laughing at ourselves is good," Amy Adams said about doing "Disenchanted," according to E! Online. She admitted that in the past, she thought that "Enchanted" was going to be a stand-alone movie. But she's now excited for the sequel.

"I trust that the team they're putting together is putting together something that makes it timely," the actress further said. "I think it's a good time in our world for 'Disenchanted.'"

With Amy Adams locked to reprise her role as Princess Giselle from Andalusia, it's still not clear if her princes -- Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden -- will return for "Disenchanted." Amy Adams expressed that she hopes to work with the original cast again for the sequel, according to Reuters.

"Disenchanted" is going to be set 10 years after "Enchanted" with Giselle doubting her happily-ever-after. Disney had been planning on the follow up since 2010, but things were only set in motion this year.

"Enchanted" was somewhat of a parody of Disney's animated princess movies and like the original, "Disenchanted" is also expected to have new original songs and music. There is no word yet on who will be composing the soundtrack for the sequel. Keep checking back to this site for more updates on "Disenchanted."
