Jessie Nelson (Because I Said So) will write the screenplay for the live action fairy tale that Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) will direct. Barry Josephson and Barry Sonnenfeld will return as producers.
The original film starred Amy Adams, James Marsden, Patrick Dempsey and Susan Sarandon. It earned more than $340 million worldwide.
Originally, the film was in development hell for years as filmmakers like Sonnenfeld tried to find a way to tackle the script's comedic tone, musical numbers and blend of animation and live action sequences.
Enchanted 2 is all part of the studio's plans to make more movies that help define the Disney brand. The project revolves around Giselle, a princess who is banished from her animated world by an evil queen. She is then thrown onto the live action streets of Manhattan to take care of herself.
Disney wants to bring back the first film's stars.
