Amy Adams will reprise her role as Giselle from the hit 2007 film, “Enchanted,” Disney announced on Thursday.
The original film starred Adams as princess-in-waiting tricked by an evil queen from the cartoon world of Andalasia to the hardened world of present-day New York.
A cartoon princess in the flesh only turns a few heads because, well, New York, but she does manage to communicate with the city's wildlife (read: rats, pigeons and cockroaches) and does an incredible musical number in Central Park with the help of passersby and street musicians.
The previous film — spoiler alert! — ended with Giselle leaving her prince, played by James Marsden, for Patrick Dempsey’s character, Robert. Dempsey played a New York lawyer who, of course, needed a little magic in his life. His character also had a daughter, Morgan. The evil queen, Narissa, was played by icon Susan Sarandon.
