Kevin Lima has admitted he had no plans to ever make an 'Enchanted' sequel, despite Disney going ahead with a new movie
Kevin Lima didn't want there to be an 'Enchanted' sequel.
The 55-year-old filmmaker helmed the 2007 Disney movie and now, 10 years later, the studio is looking to make a sequel and Amy Adams reportedly has signed up to reprise her role as Princess Giselle.
However, Lima has stepped away from the sequel and said he thinks his original movie is "complete in and of itself".
Speaking to Den of Geek, Lima said: "I always find that I'm heading off into the world looking for new adventures. The idea of making a sequel isn't the most intriguing for me. At the same time, I haven't been able to even suggest a sequel to them. 'Enchanted' feels like a movie that's complete in and of itself. I'm sure if I was forced to stick my nose to the grindstone I could work something out. I don't have a story that feels compelling, though. Nothing's come to me. I tend not to dwell on it.
"I keep thinking what's next? What other stories can I tell?"
The follow up - known as 'Disenchanted' - will be set 10 years after the original and feature Giselle "questioning her happily ever after, and accidentally triggering events that make everyone's lives turn upside down in both the real world and in the animated kingdom of Andalasia".
In the first movie Gisele rejected Prince Edward (James Marsden) in order to remain in New York with Robert Phillip (Patrick Dempsey), a divorce lawyer she fell in love with, and his daughter Morgan.
It is not yet clear if Dempsey or Marsden will return for the sequel.
The sequel was originally due to be filmed in 2010 and is now set to begin filming in 2017, 10 years on from its original release.
'Rock of Ages' director Adam Shankman will helm the project, while David Stem and David Weiss have written the script.
