Trailer Drops For Disney's New Christmas Movie Starring Isla Fisher
The movie stars Isla Fisher (Confessions of a Shopaholic) as 40-year-old single mum Mackenzie, and Jillian Bell (Brittany Runs a Marathon) as Eleanor, a rather clumsy fairy godmother-in-training.
Audiences will see Eleanor's quest to track down Mackenzie after finding a distressed letter she wrote when she was 10, which had previously been mislaid.
When she sees where Mackenzie is now, Eleanor is determined to magic her a "happily ever after".
The trailer gives us strong Enchanted vibes and may tide fans over until the anticipated sequel makes its way onto our screens.
The movie is directed by Sharon Maguire (Bridget Jones's Diary) and it's produced by Justin Springer (Dumbo, TRON: Legacy).
Tom Pollock (Ghostbusters: Afterlife), Diane L. Sabatini (Lady and the Tramp) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) were executive producers on the project, alongside Amie Karp (Ghostbusters: Afterlife).

We first got a glimpse at the film earlier this year when Disney+ released pictures from the set.
Back in 2019, it was initially tipped to be a spin-off of Disney's live action Cinderella movie. However, it's instead taken a rather different form, taking place at Christmastime, and combining magic and the real world to ensure unmissable festive feels.
In other Disney-related news, the studio announced last month a fresh new hip hop adaption of Cinderella. Swapping a glass slipper for a sneaker, Sneakerella is inspired by the folk tale about a young woman who lives in tragic circumstances as she is mistreated by her evil step-mother and sisters.
Set in the avant-garde street-sneaker subculture of New York City, the modern day fairytale will introduce us to El (Chosen Jacobs), an aspiring sneaker designer from Queens who works as a stock boy in the shoe store that once belonged to his late mother.
Godmothered premieres 4 December on Disney+.
