Ever, ever after seems like such a long, long time ago.
Believe it or not, it's been nine years since Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures' Enchanted hit theaters. In the musical, Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) was tricked into leaving her animated world of Andalasia and entering the live-action world of New York City. Though Prince Edward (James Marsden) tried to find his bride-to-be, Giselle didn't discover true love's kiss until Robert (Patrick Dempsey), a divorce attorney and single father, came into the picture. (Robert can thank his daughter, played by Rachel Covey, for playing cupid.) In the end, Giselle and Robert managed to take down the evil Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) and build a life together.
So, what ever became of Giselle and Robert?
Ever since the film's release, fans have been clamoring for a sequel.
When E! News caught up with Adams at Max Mara's "Whitney" bag dinner in New York City Monday, the actress admitted she hopes to be involved in the long-rumored Enchanted sequel. "Oh, my gosh! That's startling," the 41-year-old actress said after realizing just how long it's been. "It's weird because I'm not 10 years older, so it's so strange that it's going on. That's so weird." Speaking in Giselle's princess-y, singsong-y voice, she said, "I've just barely aged a day!"
In September, Collider reported that Anne Fletcher was still attached to direct a follow-up to the movie (which received the working title Disenchanted). Disney never confirmed the project was in the works, and it's not part of the studio's development slate. No matter. Channeling her character's eternal optimism, Adams said she hopes to bring Giselle back to the silver screen. "They've been talking about it for a while," she told E! News, "so I really embrace and look forward to what they do and hope to be involved."
If a sequel were to ever happen, Walt Disney Motion Pictures Studios better get the ball rolling as soon as possible. "At some point when the gray hairs start coming, you can't really play the quintessential animated prince anymore. Amy and I were like, 'If we're going to do it, we should do it before we're 40,'" Marsden said, adding, "If it happens, great! If not, what are you going to do?"
