Disney+ just unveiled the trailer for their latest Christmas movie, Godmothered, starring Jillian Bell and Isla Fisher. In the nee film. Bell plays a clumsy, but well-meaning fairy godmother in training, and Fisher plays the woman that she’s decided to use to prove that people still need fairy godmothers.
Bell is always a lot of fun, and the film looks like it gives a great new take on the standard Disney fairy godmother. It looks like the kind of movie that will be a lot of fun if you enjoyed Enchanted.
Set at Christmas time, “Godmothered” is a comedy about Eleanor, a young, inexperienced fairy godmother-in-training (Jillian Bell) who upon hearing that her chosen profession is facing extinction, decides to show the world that people still need fairy godmothers. Finding a mislaid letter from a 10-year-old girl in distress, Eleanor tracks her down and discovers that the girl, Mackenzie, is now a 40-year-old single mom (Isla Fisher) working at a news station in Boston. Having lost her husband several years earlier, Mackenzie has all but given up on the idea of “Happily Ever After,” but Eleanor is bound and determined to give Mackenzie a happiness makeover, whether she likes it or not.
