‘Amy Adams is so amazing in that film,’ he said, adding that it ‘was a fun project to be part of.’
The 2007 hit featured Adams as Giselle, a young woman in the animated fantasy kingdom of Analasia who dreams of meeting her prince charming, Prince Edward (James Marsden), and falling in love.
But Edward’s mother Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon), an evil sorceress, knows that she will lose all her power once her son finds his true love, so she banishes Giselle to the live-action world we know.
But as she struggles to adapt to living in a bustling New York City, she comes to rely on Patrick’s character, a divorce attorney living alone with a daughter who doesn’t her faith in fairytale endings.
The film was a commercial hit, grossing $340.5 million against an $85 million budget, according to Box Office Mojo.
Amy Adams was reported to be returning for the sequel in December, and Dempsey is the first of her major costars to confirm he’s returning with her.
