Adams, who also made Leap Year here, announced the news on Instagram. "Hi everybody. I am in Ireland where I am getting ready to start filming on the sequel to Enchanted, which I am very excited about." she said.

Dempsey, who is probably best known for playing Doctor Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd in Grey's Anatomy, also posted a shot of Wicklow on his Instagram account.

Disney is currently filming Disenchanted in and around the picturesque Wicklow village of Enniskerry, where a huge film set has been built, and it will then move production to LA before production wraps in August.

Adams, who is an Ambassador for fostering support group The RightWay Foundation, also talked about Foster Care Awareness month in her Instagram post.

The cannily titled Disenchanted is the follow-up to the original movie, which saw Adams play animated princess Giselle, who is transported to real world New York.

Once in the Big Apple, she meets and falls in love with cynical divorce lawyer, Robert Phillip (Patrick Dempsey), who's also returning for the sequel.

Idina Menzel and James Marsden are reprising their roles of Nancy and Prince Edward, and they'll be joined by new cast members Maya Rudolph, Jayma Mays and Yvette Nicole Brown, with Rudolph reported to play the movie's villain.

Last January Disney+ put out a call for "technically trained dancers for an upcoming musical feature film".

In late April, Disney also said they were looking for extras to take part in the new film.

A team of carpenters, painters and builders have transformed parts of Enniskerry into a magical Disney wonderland, with the Enniskerry Schoolhouse for Art being converted into a Disney palace.

Neil Condron, Director of the Shoolhouse for Art, told RTÉ News, that the set is "emerging every minute of the day and it's transforming this beautiful village into something spectacular".

Adams can be next seen in the thriller The Woman in the Window, which debuts on Netflix on May 14th.
