It’s been a while since Disney’s highly anticipated Enchanted sequel, aptly titled Disenchanted, made headlines.
Today, however, we at The Disinsider have received word that the film is actually expected to undergo reshoots next month in New York City.
While reshoots are a relatively normal of the production process, we can also confirm that one of the main reasons the film is gearing up for additional principal photography is because it received mixed reactions from early test screenings.
Now, it’s unclear how extensive the reshoots will be, or if they will ultimately delay plans to debut the film on Disney+ later this year.
Disenchanted will see the return of Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey (who will also be making his singing debut), Idina Menzel, and James Marsden. Maya Rudolph, Yvette Nicole Brown, 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).
Last year, we exclusively revealed the plot of the film which will see Giselle, Robert, and Morgan moving to a new house in the suburbs, overseen by Malvina Monroe, the main villain of the film. After problems begin to arise, Giselle makes a wish to transform their lives into a perfect fairytale. However, the spell backfires dramatically and puts Giselle in a rush against the clock to save both her family and her Kingdom of Andalasia before the clock strikes midnight.
We also revealed that the Seven Dwarves will be appearing in the film, and will be part of a major musical number.
Disenchanted will feature new songs from Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, whose work on “Enchanted” garnered three Academy Award® nominations.
