With the premiere on the horizon, the reviews are in—find out what critics had to say about the film below.
A satirical love letter to classic Disney animation, 2007's Enchanted featured Adams as Giselle, a young maiden living in an animated, musical world who suddenly finds herself in real-life Manhattan. The long-awaited sequel sees Giselle and her family moving to suburbia, only to receive a visit from some Andalasian friends to offer her a chance to bring back some fairy-tale magic. Watch a trailer for the film above.
Adam Shankman directs with a script from Brigitte Hales, Richard Lagravenese, Scott Neustadter, and Michael Weber. Adams, Barry Josephson, and Barry Sonnenfeld produce.

Composer Alan Menken re-teamed with lyricist Stephen Schwartz for the film's new songs. The original film introduced such Menken-Schwartz tunes as “Happy Working Song,” “That's How You Know,” and “So Close,” all three of which received 2008 Academy Award nominations. The film also included cameo appearances from the voice talent behind past Disney princesses, including stage favorites Judy Kuhn, Jodi Benson, and Paige O'Hara.
