What Is The Storyline For Disenchanted?

The official synopsis for 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. Now, Giselle is in a race against time to reverse the spell and determine what happily ever after truly means to her and her family.”

Amy recently teased that the film takes a bit of a dark turn compared to the first film. “I don’t want to give too much away, but when Giselle makes the wish that the world could be a fairy tale, she still thinks she’s a younger lady, I guess, because she’s the ingenue. And she’s not anymore. She’s now the stepmother and things begin to unfold in that direction,” she told EW.

At D23, Amy revealed in a cast video with EW that the movie is a “love letter” to her daughter. “I’m really excited for people to see it. I feel like it was the right time to do it and the right story so I’m excited,” she said.

Adam also told Yahoo! at D23, “It doesn’t sit well with her [Giselle] that she cannot make things better all the time. And realizing ‘happily ever after’ wasn’t what [it was promised to be]. So she makes a big mistake and tries to impose her will, basically, and control how life works. And there are disastrous consequences. But not disastrous for the audience!”

The Oscar nominee promised that Idina will have musical numbers in Disenchanted. Idina, a Tony winner, didn’t sing in the original film. “She sings twice, and I couldn’t be happier. Yes, that’s a Wicked reference,” Amy continued in her interview with EW. “But I’m thrilled. Her song is so beautiful. It’s one of my favorite moments of the movie. She’s Idina — she’s special and has such a beautiful voice.”
