Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey are reprising their roles as Giselle and Robert for the 'Enchanted' sequel.
Hollywood actor Patrick Dempsey has shared his excitement at being in Ireland to shoot Disenchanted, the highly-anticipated sequel to 2007 musical comedy Enchanted.
Disenchanted is set ten years after Enchanted, with Giselle, Robert and Morgan living in the suburbs. However, Giselle begins to question her happily ever after and wishes her life was more like a perfect fairytale. Her wish turns her real life and her animated home of Andalasia upside down.
The stars of the Disney film, Dempsey and Amy Adams, are both set to reprise their roles as Giselle and Robert, with filming underway in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow.
A major set is currently being built, with the 55-year-old Grey's Anatomy actor posting his first impressions of Ireland to his Instagram page - delighting thousands of his Irish followers.
Sharing a photo of a country road and rolling green hills with a one-word caption: “Ireland!” He later posted a selfie of himself wearing a flat cap with a flock of sheep grazing behind him. He's fitting in nicely as the American besotted with the Emerald Isle, then...
“I am in Ireland where I am getting ready to start filming on the sequel to Enchanted, which I am very excited about,” Adams revealed in a video posted to Instagram.
Footage from locals in Enniskerry shows what appears to be a town hall being constructed, and shops and businesses in the town are expected to get a Disney makeover for the production.
In January, Disney Studios issued a call for trained dancers for “an upcoming musical feature film” being shot between May and August in Ireland. A video shared on TikTok by Edith Gervin later showed the set being built in Enniskerry.
The original movie saw Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams play animated princess Giselle, who is transported to real world New York. Once in the Big Apple, she meets and falls in love with cynical divorce lawyer, Robert Phillip - played by Patrick Dempsey.
Idina Menzel and James Marsden are reprising their roles of Nancy and Prince Edward, and they'll be joined by new cast members Maya Rudolph, Jayma Mays and Yvette Nicole Brown. Saturday Night Live and Bridesmaids star Rudolph is reportedly portraying the movie's villain.
