Yes, Disney’s Godmothered Movie Interview could not happen fast enough! Why? Because, after I screened the movie I was elated and couldn’t wait to talk to the cast about it. This new Disney movie that airs on Disney + on December 4th is a must watch all year long!!! It truly is THE perfect feel-good, movie for the season. It will leave you all smiles. Yes, I will have the uplifting and positive moments of the movie for you soon. For now, let’s talk about the Godmothered cast interview.
Disney’s Godmothered Movie Cast Interview
So, I took part in the global press conference a couple of weeks back. Hands down, tt was a blast to be at Disney’s Godmothered Movie Cast Interview. Before going on, I do have to say that Santiago Cabrera, who plays Hugh looked very different. From the interview, it was clear that there was a lot of chemistry among the cast both on and off set. The fun is, that we got to talk to not one, but two fairy godmothers.
Godmothered Interview Highlights
Below, I have the full interview for you. But, before letting you watch, I wanted to share some of my highlights from it:
To start, Jillian would have loved to keep the ball gown she wears in the movie, she didn’t :-). About her costume, she shares: “for the most part I am in a corset and a ball gown the entire time we shot. And, I will say that I actually really liked it as Jane said, it really helps like get into character, stay in character, helps the posture. But, there was one day, where we shot on a field. And, it was very cold. It was 17 degrees. I was just in the dress. I was shaking uncontrollably. “
Still on the subject of outfits, Jane shared that this is probably the tallest character she has played because of the hair. Admittedly, she did enjoy towering over everyone else. Also, she said; “the makeup and the hair and the costumes created that character. I mean they forced you into a certain posture and a certain way of being. And, it-it really suited the strictness of Moira. So, I liked the whole outfit.”
Making Dreams Come True
Undoubtedly, this film reminds us that happily ever after and fairytales. Definitively, they are out there. But we might be looking in the wrong places. On that note, the cast shared what they hope is the takeaway from the film
On this, Isla jumped in to share that she hopes young girls realize that happily ever after does not necessarily mean having a castle, a prince, and a dress. It is about the blessings in our life today.
Additionally, Jane said: “happily ever after is what you want. It’s what you believe and it’s a goal that you can achieve on your own. It’s reliant on you and your spirit. And I think that that’s really something that we all have to remember is that we are capable of such amazing things and such positive things for ourselves and for others. And that’s happily ever after.”
Brilliant! On that note, here is the full interview for you with the cast:

About Disney’s Godmothered movie
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 12-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.
