When she tries to bring it back with a spell, things go horribly wrong and the sweet princess turns into an evil stepmother.

Disney revealed the first musical number from the family film in a feature film disappointed trailer.

What to expect from the Enchanted 2
The new musical comedy, which will be released on Disney+ on November 24, would feature a host of original songs from enchanted‘s iconic award-winning writing duo Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. While the first film followed a standard fairytale recipe, the sequel seems to have concocted more of an original post-happy ever after plot. It becomes a race against time, with Giselle trying to undo a spell that was meant to bring a little bit of Andalasia to the suburbs.
Unlike the first movie, disappointed will see Giselle channel her dark side. When her Andalasian magic backfires, she turns into a quintessential evil stepmother. This could prove a problematic move for the sequel, as most of the first film’s charm and success came from Adam’s comedic portrayal of a doe-eyed princess. Disney has gone the way of turning character archetypes into sequels that haven’t been as successful in the past. This is how Cruella De Vil was reformed in 102 Dalmatians. Of course, watching Giselle become a villain can also be a lot of fun. Only time will tell if disappointed ensures the right balance.
