And now, Amy and her co-star Patrick Dempsey, have shared some very exciting news with fans. Taking to social media to celebrate Disney Plus day, Amy told the camera: "Happy Disney Plus day! We know that you have been wishing for our movie, Enchanted, to be available on Disney Plus," with Patrick interjecting: "And we also know that you've been wishing for a sequel."

"Well today, we're here to tell you, that fairy tales do come true," continued Amy, as Patrick then said: "Enchanted is now available on Disney Plus." Amy then said: "And our new movie, Disenchanted, will be out next year." Yay! 

Who will be in the Disenchanted cast?

Both Amy and her co-star, Patrick Dempsey, have signed on to return as Giselle and Robert. We can't only hope that James Marsden will be back at his iconic Prince Philip too! Speaking about the film on The Graham Norton Show back in 2016, Amy said: "They've got a director and they are developing a script. I'm hoping I am in it. I'm not going to let anyone else play Giselle!"

Are you looking forward to the sequel?

So what has taken the sequel so long? 

The director, Adam Shankman, previously told Collider: "It's been in development for a long time, but remember, in the midst of it, there was a big regime change, and a lot of stuff around the studio, figuring out what was important to Disney and how many movies they were going to make a year.

Patrick recently signed onto the second film

"There were some big movies that they were right to make, right out of the gate. Their track record is impenetrable. Making a movie over there is very exciting because they do not feel the need to put anything into production until they feel like they have it completely right."
