Disney+ has revealed that Godmothered, an all-new Christmas comedy starring Isla Fisher and Jillian Bell, will debut exclusively on the streaming service on December 4th.
The comedy movie tells the story of Eleanor, a young, inexperienced fairy godmother-in-training (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 (Fisher) working at a news station in Boston.
Godmothered is directed by Sharon Maguire, who directed two of the Bridget Jones movie, and produced by Justin Springer. The movie also stars Santiago Cabrera, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Jane Curtin, June Squibb, Jillian Shea Spaeder, Willa Skye, Artemis Pebdani, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Stephnie Weir.
Godmothered joins the impressive list of movies that have debuted on Disney+ this year including Mulan, Artemis Fowl and The One and Only Ivan. New Pixar movie Soul will premiere on the streaming platform on Christmas Day.
