Enchanted was a Critical and Commercial Success
Back in 2007, Enchanted proved to be a surprise hit for Disney, earning critical acclaim and grossing $340.5 million worldwide against a budget of $85 million. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards. After the success, there were multiple reports of a sequel being green-lit, but the work on it only began in 2020.
The official synopsis of Disenchanted reads, “It has been more than ten years since Giselle and Robert wed, but Giselle has grown disillusioned with life in the city, so they move their growing family to the sleepy suburban community of Monroeville in search of a more fairy tale life. Unfortunately, it isn’t the quick fix she had hoped for.”
“Suburbia has a whole new set of rules and a local queen bee, Malvina Monroe, who makes Giselle feel more out of place than ever. Frustrated that her happily ever after hasn’t been so easy to find, she turns to the magic of Andalasia for help, accidentally transforming the entire town into a real-life fairy tale and placing her family’s future happiness in jeopardy,” it says further.
