Disney+ trailer for 'Godmothered' teases spiritual successor to Amy Adams' Enchanted

Godmothered Trailer Jillian Bell Is the Clumsy Fairy Godmother That Isla Fisher Did Not Ask For

The new Disney+ comedy has an element of magic to it, along with a much-needed festive vibe, some stellar comedy from Fisher and Bell, with just a whiff of "Enchanted" to make it a must-watch for this Christmas period.

Upon discovering that the young girl isn't so young anymore (she's now a 40-year-old Isla Fisher), Eleanor does her best at making her find her magic once again. Check out the Godmothered trailer in the player below! It's always fun to see Disney poke fun at its own platitudes and acknowledge that fantasy concepts would feel so out of place in our reality.

The film is produced by Justin Springer (Dumbo, TRON: Legacy), with Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters), Tom Pollock (the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife), Amie Karp (the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife) and Diane L. Sabatini (Lady and the Tramp) serving as executive producers.

The "youngest trainee" in the fairy godmother program, Eleanor (Bell) wants to show the world that fairy godmothers can still get the job done.

Apart from the two, the magical Christmas comedy alsp stars Santiago Cabrera, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Jane Curtin, June Squibb, Jillian Shea Spaeder, Willa Skye, Artemis Pebdani, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Stephnie Weir. Godmothered will be streaming on Disney+ starting December 4. Isla Fisher's Mackenzie Walsh is a single mother with two daughters and a reporter at a TV news station that specialises in yellow journalism. Turns out, Eleanor is a few years too late, because Mackenzie is now a jaded adult who gave up on the idea of "Happily Ever After" a long time ago.
