Disney’s Enchanted sequel transforms Irish village into a fairytale wonderland

Published

on

The sequel to hit movie Enchanted is finally set to happen after 14 years, with Patrick Dempsey and Amy Adams reprising their roles as they lead the cast.

And preparations for the new film Disenchanted were well on the way on Tuesday as the village of Enniskerry in County Wicklow, Ireland was given a magical makeover ahead of it being used as one of the filming locations for the flick, which will stream on Disney+. 

The story is set ten years after the original movie, Enchanted. When Giselle (Adams) begins to question her happily ever after, she wishes her life was more like a perfect fairytale. However, her wish turns both her real life and her fantasy home of Andalasia upside down. 

Enchanting! Preparations for the new film Disenchanted were well on the way on Tuesday as the village of Enniskerry in County Wicklow, Ireland and nearby Greystones, were given a magical makeover ahead of it being used as one of the filming locations for the flick, which will stream on Disney+

The transformation of the village and nearby Greystones saw houses being adorned with spectacular floral displays.

One grand home in particular, owned by Deirdre (Dott) Brady whose late husband was one of the top orthopaedic surgeons in Ireland, was transformed to look like a pink castle fit for a Princess. 

Dot’s daughter, an architect called Angela told Sunday World of the renovations: ‘The whole double-storeyed turret at the front is all new, because there was a single storey extension with a little glass pyramid which I designed and put in two years ago . Disney has a great team of designers and they make it look really very real.’

She added: ‘Zoe (Dot’s other daughter) has taken little videos for the family to share and there’s a wishing well in the back garden that is two metres deep, which is for one of their scenes and it’s really beautifully done. They’ve got a moss set and aged it and everything, and put a little turret over it, a bit like the turret at the front.

New production: The sequel to hit movie Enchanted is finally set to happen after 14 years, with Patrick Dempsey and Amy Adams reprising their roles as they lead the cast

‘She (Dott) wouldn’t be able to keep the wishing well, because of insurance reasons. Disney have an agreement to return the house the way it was, which is fair enough as it’s a stage set, but it’s beautiful made to look real.’ 

Meanwhile, shops in Enniskerry had fun modifications with colourful facades and quirky new names in fitting with the Disney film. 

One blue-fronted shop bore the moniker Potions, Notions and Lotions, while another was named Smee’s Cheese. 

A plethora of workmen were seen working on various parts of the village as the set for the sequel film started to take shape.

And while tourists appeared fascinated by the changes and stopped for photos, locals in the village carried on as normal as the work continued.  

There was further excitement in town as someone in a Spiderman costume swung by to take some fun snaps. 

Building work has been going on in the village over previous weeks, with Irish news outlets even putting out calls for extras to appear in the film.

According to the Irish Examiner, citing MovieExtras.ie, one call read: ‘Clocktower Productions is seeking roles for the motion picture project entitled Disenchanted, a new feature-length motion picture project to be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, filming in Dublin, Ireland between May and August 2021.

‘Submissions for non-descript roles will be accepted for all performers, regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, disability, race, color, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity or any other basis prohibited by law, subject to legitimate casting objectives. Clocktower is committed to diverse, inclusive casting.’

Councillor for Bray West Melanie Corrigan previously told The Mirror: ‘We are no stranger to film making in our beautiful village in Enniskerry but this is of a whole new scale, the whole area has been transformed into a Disney village.

‘The long term benefit of this for the village will be huge.’

Other filming locations for the movie include Dundalk in Co Louth and Greystones. 

It comes after actor Patrick Dempsey revealed that he’s preparing to do something he’s never done before in the upcoming Disenchanted.

‘I will be singing for the first time,’ he told Variety, adding: ‘I’ve never ever sung publicly — for a reason.’ 

Coming together: The village saw plenty of building work being done amid transformations for the Disney film

Hard at it: Work was underway to transform part of the village of Enniskerry into a Disney film set

Construction: A worker keeps a careful watch as a local pub’s facade is made-over for the upcoming film

Village life: Locals were seen milling around as workmen sectioned off parts of the village

Dempsey, 55, said he hopes fans will ’embrace’ his inner music man.

‘They’ve set me up for success and the lyrics are really fun,’ the actor said. ‘The numbers have really great choreography. And the premise is going to be interesting.

A sequel to Enchanted, which also starred James Marsden and Idina Menzel, has been in the works for a long time.

The movie currently in pre-production will be directed by Adam Shankman and Dempsey promises that it’s all coming together. 

Carrying on: Local people carried on with daily life as they sat outside as the area was renovated

No bother: People happy continued to dine as work continued around them

A lick of paint: Mock Tudor beams were seen being painted as the local pub was transformed into a medieval-style watering hole

look who it is! There was further excitement in town as someone in a Spiderman costume swung by to take some fun snaps

‘Every year they were like, ‘We’re going to do this. It’s going to get done,’ but then no one could agree on the script,’ he explained to Variety. 

‘It’s such an important film for them and it’s a satire. It’s not a typical Disney movie. It’s kind of off-brand a little bit,’ he said. 

He added: ‘To work with everybody again after 14 years is just really exciting. We need some escapism right now. We need those romantic comedies and those musicals to get people out of the doldrums that we’re in.

Sing-song: It comes after actor Patrick Dempsey revealed that he’s preparing to do something he’s never done before in the upcoming Disenchanted. ‘I will be singing for the first time,’ he told Variety 

Maya Rudolph, Yvette Nicole Brown and Jayma Mays are also also thought to be joining the cast of Disney+’s Enchanted sequel Disenchanted, reports Deadline.

Rudolph, 48, Brown, 49, and Mays, 41, are all rumored to play villains in the sequel, sources told the outlet.

The original movie was a critical and commercial success, as it took in more than $340 million at the box office and garnered three Academy Award Best Song nominations for Menken and Stephen Schwartz, for Happy Working Song, So Close and That’s How You Know.

‘And while we move in different ways, each of us brings our own flair, fire wisdom and power. We are a force to be reckoned with. We are a force of nature.’

Kloss shared a host of stunning photos from the Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame launch at the New York Botanical Garden before sharing a more relatable behind-the-scenes snap pumping breast milk in the back of a car.

She went public with her baby’s name in April alongside a sweet Instagram snap of her baby’s hand holding one of her fingers.

She reportedly announced that he was called Levi Joseph after a yeshiva [a Jewish educational institution] in Israel accidentally leaked the name and sex.

Yeshiva Reishit in Israel published the name while congratulating the parents in the ‘Mazel Tov’ portion of their email newsletter, Page Six reported.

Josh was raised Modern Orthodox Jewish, and Karlie converted to the religion before tying the knot in 2018.

Williams and retired NFL linebacker Larry English just celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary at the Montage Laguna Beach (where they wed) with their pet French Bulldogs on May 19.

Back on February 9, the Nia Lynn designer revealed she had 13 of her eggs retrieved during surgery at Southern California Reproductive Center as part of their IVF process.

‘Not all eggs will mature and that is why we only had eight embryos,’ Nicole – who boasts 2.2M social media followers – explained.

‘We are happy and feel blessed no matter the outcome! Thank you so much @drshahinghadir and the entire nursing staff at @scrcivf for keeping me comfortable and positive throughout this journey! I will update you guys with more soon!’

Williams will next drop her ‘summer’ swimwear line for Nia Lynn, named after her mother and niece, on June 15 at 10am PST exclusively through LA Collective.

‘I am inspired by the women in my life and my female audience. My designs are meant to make women feel confident and comfortable in their own skin. I wanted to give women the ability to embrace their bodies – all shapes and sizes,’ the model-influencer told Forbes back in 2019.

‘The most challenging part was finding the right manufacturer to produce the quality I envisioned for my brand. It took a lot of testing and trying out different manufacturers until the samples were exactly how I wanted them.

‘With swimwear, in particular, it has to fit perfect and there isn’t much room for error. The most rewarding aspect is seeing all of my happy customers! All my hard work is worth it when I see so many amazing ladies in my suits.’

Kris Jenner also took to Instagram to acknowledge the artist’s birthday. ‘Happy birthday Kanye West,’ said the momager as she shared a photo where she was with the star at the Met Gala in NYC.

This comes after Kim shared a new family portrait without West. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star posted the professional black and white photograph from her shoot with her four kids on Instagram.

Although they are divorcing, Kim and the Heartless rapper are still said to be ‘getting along’ with each other.

The reality star filed for divorce from the hip-hop veteran in February after almost seven years together, but the pair have remained on good terms for the sake of their brood.

And sources recently insisted Kim is ‘very happy’ to have been able to ‘keep things calm’ with Kanye.

One insider explained: ‘Kim and Kanye are getting along. They have both stayed true to their commitment to make the best situation for the kids.

‘Kim is very happy that they have managed to keep things calm. She thinks Kanye is a good dad. She wants him to be able to spend as much time with the kids as he wants.’

During a recent episode of the family’s E! series, Kim broke down in tears and admitted she feels like a ‘failure’ while opening up about their split.

In a clip filmed last year, the KKW Beauty founder hinted that the reason for divorcing the Famous rapper was because he ‘deserves’ a wife who can travel from state to state with him.

She wants peace: ‘Kim is very happy that they have managed to keep things calm. She thinks Kanye is a good dad. She wants him to be able to spend as much time with the kids as he wants.’ Seen in 2020

A nod to Kanye? Kim shared this photo of a bottle of wine and said, ‘If you know you know!’ which could have been a message to her ex. The wine is 2001 Chateau d’Yquem, Sauternes from France which costs around $400

Speaking to her sisters, she said: ‘I honestly can’t do this anymore. Why am I still in this, like, place where I’m stuck for years? Like, he goes and moves to a different state, every year, I have to be together so I can raise the kids, you know? And he’s an amazing dad, he’s done an amazing job.’

Kim also admitted she feels like a ‘failure’ and a ‘loser’ because this marks her third divorce after previous marriages to Damon Thomas and Kris Humphries.

She added: ‘I feel like a f****** failure, that it’s like, a third f****** marriage. I feel like a f****** loser. But I can’t even think about that like, I want to be happy.’

Also this week Kim announced she is debuting a new cosmetic line for KKW Beauty that has a camo theme, and Kanye debuted his Yeezy jacket for GAP.
