While Disney is known for their hit animated films, the studios has shown that they are willing to show initiative from time to time. During the year of 2007, Disney found a new classic in the film Enchanted. The film centers on the concept of fairytales that Disney was known for, but threw a animated princess into the real world. The movie was a hit with both critics and audiences; and making over $340 million worldwide did not hurt either. Being such a success, you would think Disney would have relished their new hit by continuing the concept of Enchanted going with something like a sequel. However, nothing indicated that a sequel would ever be made. That is until today.
In a new report from Deadline, word has broken out that Disney plans on making Enchanted 2. The movie is said to be directed by The Proposal and Guilt Trip's Anne Fletcher. Not only does the film already have a director, but Enchanted 2 has also gained writers. According to the report, the film will be written by J. David Stem and David N.Weiss; the screenwriters behind Shrek 2 and The Smurfs. These two writers will put their heads together to come up with a continuation to the 2007. The duo does seem to know how to handle sequels thanks to their work in Shrek 2. Nevertheless, creating a second film for Enchanted will not be an easy matter.
Seeing that it has been seven years since the previous films, it leads to some question on where this film go. Will the film continue the story of Giselle (Amy Adams) and Robert (Patrick Dempsey); or could the plot revolve around another concept? The story could easily deal more in the animated world then the realm of live action. Then again, the sequel could have more of a mix between animation and live action. There are many routes for this sequel will take, so the question at this time is just how will this filmmaking team continue the magical tale of Enchanted?
