Disenchanted is the 2022 sequel to the beloved 2007 Disney movie, Enchanted. The film follows the story of Giselle, a fairytale princess from the animated world of Andalasia, who becomes disillusioned with married life after moving with her husband Robert, to the real world of New York City. While Robert is consumed with work and raising their daughter, Giselle finds herself struggling to adjust to the mundanity of normal life.

The film opens with an exuberant musical number as Giselle and the characters of Andalasia celebrate her 10-year wedding anniversary. However, things quickly take a turn when Giselle begins to feel unfulfilled and disconnected from Robert. Maya Rudolph plays Malvina, Giselle's wicked ex-fiance from Andalasia, who shows up unexpectedly in New York and promises to give Giselle her happily ever after. Meanwhile, Patrick Dempsey's Robert struggles to juggle work and family, while Giselle's quirky best friend Morgana (played by Indina Menzel) tries to cheer her up.

Amy Adams delivers a flawless performance in the role of Giselle, infusing the character with her trademark charm and humor. Patrick Dempsey is equally impressive as Robert, capturing his character's feelings of helplessness as he tries to balance his job and family life. Maya Rudolph steals the show as the vengeful Malvina, giving a hilarious and memorable performance.

The film's direction and cinematography are top-notch, with director Adam Shankman skillfully balancing the film's fantastical elements with its more grounded themes. The musical numbers, composed by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, are a highlight of the movie, featuring catchy tunes and hilarious lyrics.
