The Enchanted sequel already sounds magical.

15 years after the original film's release in 2007, Disney is bringing our favorite characters back together for the upcoming sequel titled Disenchanted.

The sequel was officially announced in 2020, and we've recently gotten glimpses of what's to come with various set photos and the recent trailer.

Not only will the new film reunite original stars Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, and Idina Menzel, but there's also some exciting new music in store. Yes, Tony winner Menzel will finally get a musical number this time around.

From the plot details to the cast, here's everything you need to know about Disenchanted.

What is Disenchanted about?

A play on classic fairytale stories, the original movie follows Giselle as she's displaced from her magical animated Kingdom of Andalasia and banished to New York City by her evil stepmother. As she tries to make her way back to her prince, she ends up being taken in by a handsome lawyer named Robert and his daughter, and in the process falls for Robert.

Having "grown disillusioned with life in the city," the film follows Giselle and her family as they move to the "sleepy suburban community of Monroeville in search of a more fairy tale life," per the official logline for the movie. After turning to the magic of Andalasia for help with her new life, she accidentally transforms the entire town into a real-life fairy tale, "placing her family's future happiness in jeopardy."

Adams, Dempsey, Menzel, and Marsden will all reprise their roles from the first film. Maya Rudolph, Jayma Mays, Yvette Nicole Brown, Kolton Stewart, and Oscar Nunez are also joining the cast as new characters.

Rudolph previously teased that she would be playing a baddie in the movie as she tweeted, "What's a good fairy tale without a great villain? I'll see you in Andalasia my pretties...." (we'll leave you to guess which one that might be).

After giving us musical gems like "True Love's Kiss" and "That's How You Know" in the first film, the sequel is upping the ante with new music from Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz.

During an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Adams teased that there is "a lot more singing and a lot more dancing" in this movie.

"The last time I really danced as much as I'm required to dance in this, I was in my 20s and now I'm not in my 20s," Adams explained. "It feels different in your 40s. In my heart, I look like I'm in my 20s when I'm dancing, and then I would watch playback and be like, 'Whoa, that's not the same.'"

Additionally, Dempsey and Menzel will be singing in the new movie, after not having any musical numbers in the first film.

"I'm really excited because these songs, Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken wrote, the songs are incredible," Menzel told PEOPLE. "But there's so much music, and Amy [Adams] singing her butt off, and it's just Patrick [Dempsey] singing and tap dancing. It's really glorious and joyful and people are going to love it."

Is there a trailer for Disenchanted?

The first trailer was released in September, followed by a second trailer in November. The clip shows Giselle turning into an Evil Stepmother after a magic wish goes wrong.
