If you haven’t seen Godmothered on Disney+ yet — you need to watch it … like now. It’s super cute and perfect for the whole family or to watch with your besties! 💖
The movie stars Jillian Bell as a fairy godmother in training named Eleanor, who needs to save the Motherland by giving someone their “happily ever after”. She finds an unanswered letter from whom she thinks is a 10-year-old girl named Mackenzie, but is actually an old letter from a present-day adult played by Isla Fisher.
Together, Eleanor and Mackenzie, along with Mackenzie’s two kids, Jane (my girl Jillian Shea Spaeder) and Mia (Willa Skye), they learn that a happily ever after isn’t the same for everyone.
Disney+ was super nice enough to send along an awesome PR box to me that had hot chocolate, a festive mug, candy cane, magic wand, and a super soft and fuzzy blanket!

Plot: 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.
