Are you tired of all things D23 yet? Too bad! We’ve got one more trailer coming your way as well as a brief roundup of some other upcoming live-action films. The trailer in question is for Disenchanted, a live-action musical comedy starring Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey (no, he’s not playing a Targaryen), Idina Menzel, and James Marsden. Disney also showcased some other live-action stuff, not least of which was Indiana Jones 5. Read on for more details.
Jumping jelly sticks! (If you watched the video above, you understand this reference). This trailer sure packs in a lot! Based on what I see here, I think this movie has the potential to be amazing or the opposite of amazing, but either way, Adams’ performance here is inspired.
Here’s Disenchanted’s official synopsis:
It has been 15 years since Giselle (Amy Adams) and Robert (Patrick Dempsey) 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 (Maya Rudolph), 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.
The film comes out on Disney+ on November 24, 2022.
Disenchanted wasn’t the only live-action film Disney touted during D23. While no footage from Indiana Jones 5 was publicly released, Harrison Ford gave an emotional presentation, and later on he and Ke Huy Quan had a reunion that was, in a word, delightful:
We also got some art for the live-action Peter Pan & Wendy movie in the works (see below), a film that stars Alexander Molony (Peter Pan), Ever Anderson (Wendy), Alyssa Wapanâtahk (Tiger Lily), and Jude Law as Captain Hook himself. Disney also reminded us that we’ll see the following movies in 2023 and 2024: Haunted Mansion, Mufasa: The Lion King, Snow White, and The Little Mermaid (which also got a teaser trailer you can check out here).
What a Disney-filled weekend! I’m going to go take a nap.
