    I really don't mind Amy doing this. $$$$. But...couldn't she get a better director? I know Shankman is a close friend of hers (probably the reason he's hired). Maybe she wants to help him out since he's been in the slumps in recent years. But c'mon gurl.

    i have doubts about this working since it's a sequel and coming so late after the original, but i'm sure amy will be amazing again as usual and hopefully it's a BO success too

    Yeah, my main concern is also that it just seems too late for a sequel. In many ways. I'm worried it might harm the original's reputation. And of course that director screams flop. But hey wasn't Anne Fletcher attached at one point? Shankman seems better than Fletcher at least.... or not 'cause both are flops ultimately.

    Just wishing this is a fast shoot.

    They were playing Carrie's Happy Ever After from the movie in the grocery store. Clearly the masses are ready.

    I love Enchanted but I have mixed feelings about a sequel.

    Also I have to echo the "So Close" love from earlier in this thread. Controversial opinion, maybe, but that's my favorite song from the movie.

    I also liked Carrie Underwood's Ever After. That song was lovely too.

    I was bopping in the store. When she hit that long ass note at the end I was like "damn Carrie, get it".

    I'm torn. The time for sequels is within a few years of the original; I can't think of one that was successful this long after the original. OTOH, it's probably my favorite Adams performance. I prefer it to most of her nominated roles. The thing is, Adams is a gifted comedic actress - which is something quite different from being a comic a la most of your SNL alums - but comedy and Oscar rarely go hand in hand, which is why some of her best work gets ignored in favor of more Oscar-friendly films and roles. Most studio comedies these days are made for the lowest common denominator only, whereas the great grownup comedies of the 80s and earlier couldn't exist in today's Hollywood climate.

    I loved all the music in Enchanted. A shame the songs were nominated against "Falling Slowly" (one of the best winners ever in that category).

    I'll give you the animated ones. In the case of Crystal Skull, perhaps I should have clarified: critically successful.

    Weren't there other Mad Max movies after the original? Would Fury Road be considered a sequel or a reboot? I maintain there's a difference.

    The original has some creaky narrative bits, but it's a pretty thorough delight. Hope they don't mess up the sequel.

    I don't know why there's somehow a need of a sequel for this (although the question of "need" in Hollywood is ).
    The songs were nice to great and the ending was perfect.

    Why did Giselle have that fish in her mouth btw?
    I didn't get that joke? Even with the LM music in the background....

    She was drinking water from the fish tank.

    Crystal Skull managed to get 77 on RT, so hardly a critical failure. And I think Fury Road is also considered a sequel.

    However, Bridget Jones is probably the closest case (non action/animated franchise with a single female lead). And that was a hit. The difference being that Adams is at the peak of her career and Renee...was not.

    Crystal Skull got that high a score?! Surprised.

    Point being that most belated sequels, at least those that don't recast, come with a sense of fatigue. It's like why this, why now?

    I would like Disenchanted to be good, but there are a lot of reasons it could fail.

    not much news but during a recent interview with adam shankman he said he's still working on it. i think they might shoot it next year?

    Who would you love to collaborate with?

    ...... I'm already working on The Enchanted sequel for Disney, so that, collaborating with Alan Menken and Steven Schwartz... which is extraordinary.
    So, what's up next for Adam Shankman the choreographer? Adam Shankman the director? Adam Shankman the producer?

    Choreographer Shankman is technically available for hire! I'm hired to do the aforementioned Enchanted sequel, which will employ all the Adams above, as well as the Amy Adams!

    Giselle's dress was at display at the recent d23.

    There's no reason for this to exist. It's been way too long since the first for people to care about another one and Amy's at a point in her career where she doesn't need films like this.

    Script is basically done.

    http://www.slashfilm.com/enchanted-2-script/


    Adam Shankman was on a Television Critics Association panel for Step Up: High Water, the YouTube Red series he is producing based on the Step Up films. After the panel, he spoke with /Film about the sequel to Enchanted. Shankman is set to direct the film, which is titled Disenchanted.

    “We are handing in a script in a couple weeks that I’m super happy with,” Shankman said. “Then gotta get the music written.”

    Disenchanted has been in development since 2010. Amy Adams will reprise her role as Gisele, the animated Disney princess who decided to stay in live-action New York at the end of Enchanted. The sequel is set 10 years after 2007’s Enchanted. As the title suggests, Giselle may be rethinking her love of the real world. That is still the premise of the new script, Shankman said.

    “The fundamental story has changed a little bit, but not from the base story of it,” Shankman said. “It’s about Giselle 10 years later going, ‘What is happily ever after?’”

    In classic Disney fashion, Enchanted had five musical numbers, three of which were nominated for Oscars (“Falling Slowly” from Once won that year). Shankman said there would be more songs in the sequel.

    “There’s a lot more songs this time than there were in the original, at least in the planning phase right now,” Shankman said.

    Enchanted was bookended with animated sequences. Shankman said fans can expect the same amount of animation in the sequel.

    “As for the animation, it’s probably about the same amount,” he said.
