Amy Adams cemented her name in Hollywood after playing the iconic role of Princess Giselle in the 2007 musical-drama movie, "Enchanted." She starred in the film alongside actors Patrick Dempsey, Idina Menzel, and James Marsden.

Fourteen years later, the critically-acclaimed movie gets a sequel titled "Disenchanted." The 47-year-old actress recently opened up to TV host Jimmy Fallon about her experience during filming.

In an interview on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," Adams said fans can expect more singing and dancing in the new film. She also shared that dancing in her 40s felt different, saying:

"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.'"

Besides dancing, Adams stated that the original cast will reprise their characters. She also revealed that actress Maya Rudolph, the newest member of the bunch, will play a villain.

Dempsey, Menzel, Marsden, and Susan Sarandon will reprise their characters as divorce lawyer Robert Philip, Nancy Tremaine, Prince Edwards, and Queen Narcisa, respectively.

Interestingly, Adams worked as a waitress and a greeter in The Gap.

In the 2007 film, Giselle was about to wed her prince at the fictional kingdom of Andalaisa but was sent away to New York City. Its new sequel is said to take place 15 years after that, which will affect the real world.

Development of the "Enchanted" sequel began in 2010. Recently, filmmaker and producer Adam Shankman announced that they have wrapped up their shooting in Ireland.

Dempsey shared in a previous interview that he will show off his singing prowess in the movie for the first time. The highly-anticipated film will premiere in 2022.

Following her return to the musical film, Adams will test her acting in theater. The six-time Oscar nominee will make her West End stage debut in Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Menagerie" revival.

The "Arrival" actress expressed her admiration for stage acting and musicals, noting that she is looking forward to the challenge. The upcoming production will open in May next year.

This is not the first time for Adams to do stage acting. Before becoming a Hollywood actress, the "American Hustle" star started her career in dinner-theatre productions.

Interestingly, Adams also previously worked as a waitress and a greeter in The Gap. The veteran actress has been happily married to her husband, actor Darren Le Gallo since 2015.
