Idina Menzel Makes Fashion Debut With ENCORE

Idina Menzel is getting into the fashion business! A preview of her new sportswear collection, Encore by Idina Menzel, is now available on QVC.com! Encore by Idina Menzel is a collection of chic yet easy-to-wear styles that transition seamlessly from one activity to the next. Idina will appear on QVC May 23 from 4 to 5 PM to launch the collection, which features jumpsuits, hooded rompers, ballet cardigans, fit and flare dresses, high-waisted crop jeans and French terry zip-front hoodies and pants ranging from $40 to $100.

The signature piece is the “Swing Jumpsuit”. Idina spoke with WWD about the collection and shared: “The swing is the person in theater who I respect the most and is the person who has to learn every role. For me, it’s a hooded jumpsuit. If you really wanted to, you can wear it to bed and wake up, throw on sneakers and get your kids to school, throw heels in your car, and if you have to go for drinks later, you can go out.” Read the full interview here and shop the collection here!

‘Disenchanted’ Will Stream Thanksgiving 2022!

Disney has announced that Disenchanted, the sequel to 2007’s Enchanted, will be released on Disney+ this Thanksgiving! As we know, Idina Menzel will reprise her role as Nancy Tremaine! Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden are also reprising their original roles. James Marsden recently told PEOPLE, “It was a crime that in the first film, she’s in a movie musical and you have Idina Menzel, and she doesn’t sing a note. We’ve raised the bar by giving her some big, Stephen Schwartz, Alan Menken … I can’t say too much about what she sings, but original music, I’ll say.”

Picking up 15 years after Enchanted left off, Disenchanted will follow Giselle as she “moves to the suburb of Monroeville with Robert and their teenage daughter Morgan, where she must juggle the challenges that come with a new home and discover what happily ever after truly means to her and her new family.

Here’s the first official still from the movie:

Idina Menzel has signed onto a new movie called “Latchkey Kids”! “Latchkey Kids” stars Alan S. Kim as a bright nine-year-old whose aged baby-sitters keep on dying on the job. He befriends an eccentric but tough teen girl (Elsie Fisher) who’s desperate to escape a dysfunctional life and her mother (Idina Menzel). She becomes his perfect babysitter – until the girl and mother are embroiled in a drug deal that goes awry and the boy must do whatever to save his new friend.

The movie will be directed by John J. Budion and is scheduled to start production in late Spring. David Garrett’s Mister Smith Entertainment has boarded as its sales agent. He had this to say in a statement to Variety: “Among her many accomplishments, Idina gave a tour de force performance in Adam Sandler’s black comedy ‘Uncut Gems’ and will undoubtedly bring a unique twist to this role. One cannot help but fall in love with these original and funny characters and we think audiences will be in for a real treat with this affectionate portrait of an unlikely friendship.”
