I’m honestly surprised that it took so long. Disney’s 2007 live-action film Enchanted was the best fairy tale the mouse-house had produced in quite some time, and even before it was released, execs were calling it the first film of a potential franchise. The plans are finally starting to come together on an Enchanted sequel, as Disney has hired Jessie Nelson to pen a screenplay, which will be directed by Anne Fletcher.
Nelson’s credits include Stepmom, The Story of Us, I Am Sam, Because I Said So and was involved in writing the story for Fred Claus. Fletcher is a choreographer-turned-director whose credits include Step Up, 27 Dresses and The Proposal.
