Disenchanted Stars Amy Adams and Maya Rudolph Describe Their Villain Roles: “It’s the Dream”

It’s been 15 years since Amy Adams first played Giselle enchantedand now she’s back with recurring stars Patrick Dempsey, Idina Menzel and James Marsden Disillusioned. The new Disney+ movie also features Maya Rudolph as Malvina, Giselle’s biggest adversary in the movie. Due to a mistaken wish, Giselle begins to turn into an evil stepmother throughout the film, meaning that Rudolph and Adams have a lot of fun playing dueling villains. The duo even gets a villain song called “Badder” and recently spoke about the musical number and having fun with their roles in an interview with Glamor.

“Heaven. Loved it,” Adams said of filming their duet. Rudolph added: “It’s the dream. It’s the thing I was training for, especially and specifically for this movie. I worked on the song every day, did choreography. It was the dream come true from when I was a kid and wanted to be in the movie Fame. [Starts singing.] I had dance, and then I had singing, and then I was like, “I’m doing it, I’m in a musical!” And then we got there that day and we had to do it. Having Amy be the person to welcome you and do it with you is the dream. We worked out our little skirts.” Adams explained, “We worked out our little corset boots!”

“You know, it took some practice, but it was so much fun because one of the things I love about it is that it taps into the idea of ​​talking to yourself,” Adams said of transforming Giselle into a villain. “And I think I’m constantly dueling between the good Amy and the bad Amy, and we have conversations all the time. Well, not all the time, but sometimes! There are times,” she added with a laugh. “So it’s this idea of ​​that internal monologue and the battle of which side of you is going to win. That was so much fun to play with. It was one of those things that when I saw it on paper I was just like: “Well, I guess I should do this,” and it was so much fun doing it. But there was some trial and error.” She added, “I like that they conflict with each other.”
