A script for the Enchanted sequel movie is almost finished.
At a Television Critics Association panel, the new movie’s director Adam Shankman revealed that the script is weeks from completion.
The Disney sequel, Disenchanted, will follow up on Giselle, the cartoon princess who struggles to adapt after being unexpectedly thrown into modern day New York.
“We are handing in a script in a couple weeks that I’m super happy with,” said Shankman.
“Then [we] gotta get the music written.”
He added: “The fundamental story has changed a little bit, but not from the base story of it.”
According to Shankman, in the ten-years-later follow-up, Giselle will ask: ‘What is happily ever after?’
The director also promised that in the current planning phase, there are “a lot more” songs than in the original, and about the same level of animation.
Released in 2007, Enchanted stars Amy Adams as Giselle, Patrick Dempsey as the cynical divorce lawyer Robert Philip and James Marsden as the melodramatic Prince Edward.
The original also features the track ‘Ever Ever After’ by country singer Carrie Underwood.
Last October it was revealed that fellow red-head Isla Fisher was once mistaken for Adams by Lady Gaga.
Fisher then admitted that she “gracefully” accepted Gaga’s compliment for Adams’ performance in American Hustle as she “loved” the singer so much, and did not want to offend her.
Adams was included in Forbes list of the highest paid actresses of 2017.
