Frozen star Idina Menzel and Dead To Me actor James Marsden have arrived in Ireland as production on Disney’s Disenchanted continues.

Director Adam Shankman revealed the news on his Instagram page, posting a photo of him with the two actors and writing: “Found my #potsofgold In Dublin. Edward and Nancy.

“@james_marsden and @idinamenzel = a @disney dream. #Disenchanted”

James, who played Prince Edward in the 2007 hit Enchanted and is reprising his role in the sequel, shared the photo to his own Instagram account, captioning the post: “From Ireland, With love.”

The 47-year-old added a shamrock gif to the post.

Meanwhile, other cast members have been exploring the Emerald Isle while they’ve had time off from filming.

Bridesmaids star Maya Rudolph, who is billed to play the villain in Disenchanted, took a sightseeing trip around Howth on Ireland’s Eye Ferries with her family and went for a meal at Juanitos on Drury Street.

Amy Adams, who will be reprising her starring role as Princess Giselle, has been enjoying some sights in the capital and recently paid a visit to the National Gallery with her daughter Aviana for her 11th birthday.

And Grey’s Anatomy actor Patrick Dempsey has been exploring the country whenever her can, with his latest adventure taking him to Dalkey Island.

The Maine native visited the island’s goats and admired the gorgeous ruins on the uninhabited isle and shared some photos to his Instagram stories.

Dempsey’s Dalkey day trip comes as filming for Disenchanted has resumed in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow this week.

Gardaí in the area are asking the public to avoid the town until after Friday.

A Garda spokesperson said: “We are asking people to avoid the area in the coming days as filming of Disenchanted is ongoing until Friday and access to the village is heavily restricted.

“The car park which operated last weekend will once again be open next weekend with the usual supervision and shuttle bus service which worked so well.”

The majority of the filming in Enniskerry finished almost three weeks ago but has now recommenced from Tuesday until Friday.
