Production for New Disney+ Movie ‘Godmothered’ Is Underway
Production has officially kicked off on a brand new live-action film for Disney’s streaming network Disney+. The movie called Godmothered will star Isla Fisher and Jillian Bell. It’s directed by Sharon Macguire (who most notably directed Bridget Jones Diary.) The screenplay was written by Kari Grandlund (Lady and the Tramp) and Melissa Stack.
The film is set during the holiday season and tells the story of Eleanor a young fairy godmother (Bell) who is still in training. When her profession is threatened she decides to show the world that people still need fairy godmothers! She finds a letter from a 12-year old girl and tracks her down to discover that the girl is now an adult single mom (Fisher) working at a Boston news station. Though life is tough this mom hasn’t given up on her dream of a “Happily Ever After” and Eleanor is determined to make that happen!
Rounding out the cast is Jane Curtin (“Kate & Allie,” “Saturday Night Live”) as headmistress of The Motherland, Jillian Shea Spaeder (“Walk The Prank”) and Willa Skye (“Lazy Susan”) as Mackenzie’s young daughters, Mary Elizabeth Ellis (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) as her sister, and Santiago Cabrera (“Star Trek: Picard”), Artemis Pebdani (“Scandal”), Utkarsh Ambudkar (“Brittany Runs a Marathon”) and Stephnie Weir (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) as colleagues at the TV news station where Mackenzie works. June Squibb (Oscar nominee for “Nebraska”) and Carlease Burke (“Child’s Play”) appear as godmothers populating The Motherland.
Christopher Norr (“Succession”) serves as Director of Photography with Alice Normington (“Suffragette”) as Production Designer, Renee Ehrlich Kalfus (“Hidden Figures”) as Costume Designer and Gary Dollner (“Fleabag”) as Editor.
