Disney issues casting call for surprise 'Enchanted' sequel being filmed in Wicklow

CALLING ALL Disney fans in Ireland! 

This is your chance to appear in a new film from the iconic studio behind such fairytale-led classics as Cinderella and The Little Mermaid.

Disenchanted is the long-awaited sequel to 2007’s Enchanted, which starred Grey’s Anatomy heartthrob Patrick Dempsey alongside Amy Adams, then a rising star in Hollywood.

Adams starred as Giselle, a Disney-eseque  princess who ends up as something of a fish-out-of-water after being transported from the comfort of her animated fairytale kingdom of Andalasia to the rough and tumble of real-life New York.

Fortunately, she ends up being taken under the wing of Robert (Dempsey), who soon finds himself developing romantic feelings for his new charge.

Hilarity and hijinks ensue with the pair - SPOILER ALERT - ultimately living happily ever after...or so we thought.

Now, some 14 years on, fans are getting a sequel few, if anyone, could have ever predicted would happen following years of delays.

Not only that, but both Adams and Dempsey are returning to reprise their roles along with co-stars James Marsden and Idina Menzel.

The plot of Disenchanted sees as increasingly bored Giselle accidentally trigger the same chain reaction of events that saw the real world blend with Andalasia.

Maya Rudolph, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Jayma Mays have also signed on to star in Disenchanted which will premiere on Disney’s new streaming service Disney+.

Even better still, it's being filmed in Ireland and they are currently on the lookout for background artists to appear in the movie.
