Goldberg discussed the film during appearance on “The Late Show with James Corden” in October. When the host asked why a third film hasn’t happened, the actress explained, “Because for a long time they kept saying no one wanted to see it,” Goldberg said.

“And then, quite recently, it turns out, that that may not be true. People might want to see it. So, we’re working diligently to try to figure out how to get the gang together and come back.”  

The film was among several projects revealed Thursday during the virtual Disney Investor Day presentation. The titles are set to air across its various TV and movie platforms, including a series based on the “Alien” movie franchise, set to air on FX.

The company also announced a sequel to “Enchanted” along with a prequel to “Toy Story.”
