Amy Adams sparks hope for sequel of Disney's Enchanted, says she is 'absolutely up for that'
Appearing on 'The Talk' recently, actress Amy Adams went on to fuel hopes for patrons of the "Happy Working Song", sharing that she is more than eager to reprise her Disney role.
All is not over for Princess Giselle and her real-life hero Robert yet. It might have been over ten years since Disney treated us to what would be a parody of its princess genre-based movies, in the form of Amy-Adams starring, 'Enchanted'. And progress on its much-anticipated sequel might even have hit a snag in the following years, but thanks to Adams we know, there is hope for an 'Enchanted' part 2.
Appearing on 'The Talk' recently, the Oscar-nominated actress went on to fuel hopes for patrons of the "Happy Working Song", sharing that she is more than eager to reprise her Disney role, as the animated princess, Giselle, who after a dramatic turn of events finds herself in the middle of the live-action New York City.
“I am absolutely up for that,” the 43-year-old American actress said adding, "We’re working on it — so hopefully.” While this might not be the first time such an update has surfaced over the possible production of the 'Enchanted' sequel — or Disenchanted as it has come to be known as — it is, nevertheless enough to get fans of the mouse-house studio on their toes.
2007's 'Enchanted' movie, which had brought in a respectable $340 million worldwide, offered an interesting spin on the age-old fairy-tale classics by transporting Adams' leading lady into a busy, regular, real-life setting, where the challenges (although different) were as jarring as ever.
"Shocked by this strange new environment that doesn’t operate on a happily ever after basis, Giselle is now adrift in a chaotic world badly in need of enchantment. But when Giselle begins to fall in love with a charmingly flawed divorce lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) who has come to her aid — even though she is already promised to a perfect fairy tale prince (James Marsden) back home — she has to wonder: Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?" read the official synopsis for the movie.
Originally directed by Kevin Lima, the sequel has however proceeded with some creative shake-ups despite its production limbo. Earlier it emerged that Adam Shankman was brought on board as the director for the second part - although there is no word yet about the cast and whether or not Adams' co-stars including Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Rachel Covey, Idina Menzel, and Susan Sarandon will be reprising their roles.
"The fundamental story has changed a little bit, but not from the base story of it. It's about Giselle 10 years later going, 'What is happily ever after?'" Shankman had said in a previous interview, teasing what 'Disenchanted' might have in store for Disney loyalists.
