That's because according to Variety, Disney is panning a sequel to 2007's surprise hit 'Enchanted.' That film, which told the story of a fairy tale princess who was marooned in New York City by an evil witch, made over $123 million domestically and $340 million worldwide.
It's a question that philosophers and children alike have been debating for centuries: what happens after happily ever after? Now, thanks to Disney, we may finally find out.
That's because according to Variety, Disney is panning a sequel to 2007's surprise hit 'Enchanted.' That film, which told the story of a fairy tale princess who was marooned in New York City by an evil witch, made over $123 million, domestically, and $340 million worldwide.
In fact, the biggest hurdle facing the sequel, which Disney has put on the fast track in hopes of getting it into theaters as soon as possible, may be that very success. Thanks to her star turn in 'Enchanted,' Amy Adams has become one of Hollywood's hottest properties, which may throw up some roadblocks for the studio in terms of both her availability and the higher salary she now commands.
Still, given the success of the original, Disney is pushing forward, already signing 'The Proposal' director Anne Fletcher to helm the follow-up. Also on board is screenwriter Jessie Nelson ('Fred Claus') and producers Barry Josephson and Barry Sonnenfeld, while the article indicates that Disney is also looking to bring back the full cast from the original, which includes Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden and Susan Sarandon.
But it's the return of Adams, who is next slated to appear alongside Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg in 'The Fighter,' that may make or break the production. We have a feeling, though, given the importance of the role to her career, that she'll be back. After all, she wouldn't want to spoil her fairy tale ending, would she?
