Disney+ Just Dropped Trailers for ‘Disenchanted’ and ‘Little Mermaid’ And You Won’t Be Disappointed

Set a cal reminder—you won't want to forget these debut dates.

Ever since Enchanted hit theaters in 2007, fans have been waiting with bated breath for a second installment. Well, it’s finally happening! At Disney’s D23 Expo over the weekend, the media giant announced a premiere date and two-minute trailer for Disenchanted, which has amassed nearly seven million views in just three days.

To regard Disenchanted as one of 2022’s most highly anticipated films would be an understatement, clearly.

Slated to hit Disney+ on Thanksgiving Day, Disenchanted follows Giselle (Amy Adams) and Robert (Patrick Dempsey) as they uproot their family’s life in Manhattan for a more peaceful livelihood in Monroeville.

Despite the suburb’s quaint aesthetic, Giselle is left feeling incomplete. With the help of her furry little backup singers, Giselle wishes for true happiness—but, instead, everything around her comes crashing down in smithereens.

Disenchanted is set 15 years after the first film, and features main original cast members Adams, Dempsey, Idina Menzel, and James Marsden. They’re joined by Gabby Baldacchino, who portrays the couple’s teenage daughter, and Maya Rudolph as the conniving Malvina Monroe.

However, that’s not the only movie news fans were privy to following Disney’s D23 Expo.

The streaming platform also dropped a 90-second teaser for its live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, available at a theater near you on May 26, 2023.

Halle Bailey is reprising the role of Ariel and singing several titles from the movie’s soundtrack (Lin-Manuel Miranda and original composer Alan Menken have written four new songs for the film, per Variety).

Starring opposite Bailey is Melissa McCarthy as Ursula. Ariel’s love interest, Prince Eric, will be played by British actor Jonah Hauer-King.

You can watch the trailer below.

Now, immediately go add Bailey’s rendition of “Part of Your World” to your Spotify playlist. It’s a banger.
