‘Enchanted‘ Sequel, ‘Disenchanted‘ May Be On The Way. The sequel comes over a decade after the original film was released in 2007.
According to IMDb.com (Internet Movie Database), the sequel to the Amy Adams led film Enchanted is in the works. The films working title is being called “Disenchanted” and rumors are swirling once again after the release of a rendering for the films logo surfaced online.
IMDb lists Disenchanted as “in-production” with credits for Amy Adams returning as Giselle, and rumored return of actors James Marsden (Prince Edward) and Patrick Dempsey (Robert Philip). Also credited is director Adam Shankman (Hairspray, Rock of Ages, A Walk to Remember) and Writers: Rita Hsiao, Bill Kelly, Jessie Nelson, J.David Stem, and David Weiss.
Though an official logo has yet to be released by Disney for the film, the logo that has been circulating social media after being released by TheDisInsider, shows a very similar style to the original films design. The potentially fan-made logo may not be the real deal, but it certainly has folks chatting and is currently posted on the film IMDb page.
The potential storyline for the film would follow the characters 10-years further than the original story, with the possibility of Giselle losing her belief in a happily ever after, causing chaos in both the real world and the enchanted world she is from.
Earlier this year Disney Legend, Alan Menken, discussed the films development during an interview with Den of Geek.
”Yes, we’re doing Enchanted 2,” he confirmed to Den of Geek.
“We’ve had meetings,” he added. “Five films I have right now that are waiting for a greenlight. They’re all standing at the light right now, and at some point they’re going to go ‘greenlight’!” Menken also stated that he wouldn’t be surprised if they all got the green light at once, and take over his professional life for the foreseeable future.
Menken became a Disney Legend after working on scores for films such as: The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Enchanted, Tangled, and many more Disney related titles.
Disenchanted does not have a release date as of yet, but as production moves forward we will be happy to share any news regarding the potential sequel. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Company for all things Disney!

Fans Want Gordon Ramsay to Play Chef Louis in Live Action “The Little Mermaid“. This might just be the best thing I get to write about this week.
Everyone knows the talented real life Master Chef, Gordon Ramsay, and his no-nonsense ways around a kitchen. It seems fans think Chef Ramsay is the obvious choice to portray Chef Louis in the live action remake of Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
okay, hear me out, Gordon Ramsay as Prince Eric’s angry French chef, Louis pic.twitter.com/wlayHtq4iX

Even if Disney decides to go in a different direction with casting, the idea of Gordon playing Chef Louis has fans chatting.
Some of the exciting elements about the casting would be the chance to see Gordon Ramsay sing his way around a kitchen, yelling at some poor kitchen staff members in the film, and watching Ramsey chase around Sebastian the Crab throughout the castle kitchen.
Disney has cast the very talented Halle Bailey as Ariel, but has yet to announce the rest of the films official casting choices.
Rumored to be cast is Melissa McCarthy as Ursula and Terry Cruise has put his crown in the ring to play King Triton, though most outlets believe Idris Alba is more likely to land the role as the Mer-King. There is no word yet about potential castings for Prince Eric or Ariel’s best buddy, Flounder.

Co-Stars React to Cameron Boyce’s Death and Initial Autopsy Results Are In. Fans around the world were devastated to hear the news that Disney Channel Star, Cameron Boyce, had passed away in his sleep on Saturday night. His family made a formal announcement Sunday morning regarding his passing.
“It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron,” the statement reads. “He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.
We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother.”
Though early claims of Boyce’s passing appeared to be from an apparent seizure in his sleep, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner performed an autopsy to search for the official cause of death and have yet to determine the cause. “An autopsy was performed today and a cause of death was deferred pending further investigation.” The statement also confirmed that Boyce was pronounced dead on the scene when authorities arrived to his home.
Cameron’s Co-Star’s from Grown Ups, Jessie, and Descendants have been paying their respects with touching tributes to the late young actor via social media.

Walt Disney World‘s Blizzard Beach will be closing for an extended amount of time during its annual refurbishment this year. The park is expected to experience a few new enhancements this winter!
Blizzard Beach will be closed from September 8th, 2019 to January 4th, 2020. This duration is almost six entire weeks longer than the waterpark’s usual refurbishment. Disney has yet to release any specific news, but enhancements and upgrades are expected.
With several new waterparks opening in the Orlando area, Blizzard Beach definitely needs an upgrade to stay in the running with its competitors.
Walt Disney World’s Typhoon Lagoon recently opened Miss Adventure Falls. This new slide is the longest ride in Disney waterpark history. That’s hard to beat!
