Disney+ logoDisney has started production on Godmothered, an original live-action movie being created for Disney+. The film will star Isla Fisher and Jillian Bell.

Set at Christmas time, “Godmothered” is a comedy about 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 12-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. 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.

Joining Bell and Fisher in supporting roles are Emmy winner Jane Curtin as headmistress of The Motherland, Jillian Shea Spaeder and Willa Skye as Mackenzie’s young daughters, Mary Elizabeth Ellis as her sister, and Santiago Cabrera , Artemis Pebdani, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Stephnie Weir as colleagues at the TV news station where Mackenzie works. June Squibb and Carlease Burke appear as godmothers populating The Motherland.

The film will be directed by Sharon Maguire, with the screenplay written by Kari Granlund and Melissa K. Stack. Justin Springer will produce, with Ivan Reitman, Tom Pollock, Amie Karp, and Diane L. Sabatini serving as executive producers.
