Menzel played Nancy Tremaine in Enchanted, a 2007 fantasy musical romantic comedy also starring Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden.

The actress reprised Nancy in the sequel Disenchanted, which premiered on Disney+ in November.

On WWHL, Menzel was asked if she had faith in the sequel being made 15 years later.

"I didn't know they were going to do a sequel for a long time, so faith? Yeah, I wanted to because I had so much fun with that cast," she said.

Menzel was also asked if she was happy to sing in the sequel.

"I'm extremely happy that I got to sing this particular song -- 'Love Power' is written by Stephen Schwartz, who's done Wicked, and Alan Menken, and they're both Disney legends and it's a beautiful song," the star said.
