Yvette Nicole Brown is quickly becoming a Disney staple, the actress in the last year has appeared in Disney’s biggest projects including Big Shot, Muppets Haunted Mansion, Alice’s Wonderland Bakery, and Crossing Swords. Up next, she will appear in the highly-anticipated Enchanted sequel, Disenchanted.
E! News caught up with Brown and she shared what it was like joining the sequel to a now Disney classic. “It’s just gonna be a wonderful romp through Ireland, We were in Ireland last summer for three months, and it’s a love letter to those that love the original Enchanted. And I am one of those fans that was waiting forever, and I can’t believe that I get to be in the sequel.“
She would go on to give the outlet some fun details about the films shoot and onset hijinks. “Everybody that was on the set can sing, and our director Adam Shankman played music in between each take. Amy Adams and Maya Rudolph would just start doing two-part harmony—I tried to get in, Jayma would get in. So, it was just a lot of fun, just lovely people.”
Disenchanted will see the return of Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey (who will also be making his singing debut), Idina Menzel, and James Marsden. Also joining Yvette Nicole Brown in their franchise debut are Maya Rudolph, Jayma Mays, Oscar Nunez, Kolton Stewart, James Monroe Iglehart, and Gabriella Baldachino join the cast.
The film is directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray) and produced by Barry Josephson (Enchanted, TV’s Bones), Amy Adams (Arrival, American Hustle) and Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black, Addams Family Values). It will also feature new songs from Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, whose work on Enchanted garnered three Academy Award nominations. The film will hit Disney+ later this year.
