Okay, I’m getting a bit pretentious with the faux Italian title (translated it means “A Beautiful Preview of Pixar’s Luca“). But English words just don’t do the beauty of Pixar’s animation proper justice; particularly for their upcoming film Luca, set to debut on Disney+ this summer! Luca tells an adorable story about two close friends from Italy who set out on an adventure to make a life of their own in a superstitious seaside town along the Italian Riviera. The twist? They’re both actually sea monsters from underneath the coastal shore.

Disney’s ‘Godmothered’ has Jillian Bell, Isla Fisher, and Santiago Cabrera in Unexpected Roles

When the premise and the cast to Disney’s Christmas film Godmothered were first announced, which told the story of an inexperienced Fairy Godmother-in-training set out to help make a wish come true, one would think the casting got all mixed up.

The film stars Jillian Bell (Brittany Runs a Marathon, 22 Jump Street) as Eleanor, the hopeful, yet naïve, fairy Godmother-in-training, wanting to show the world that people still need fairy godmothers. After finding a mislaid letter from a 10-year-old girl in distress, Eleanor tracks the little girl down and discovers that the little girl, Mackenzie (Isla Fisher), is now a bitter 40-year-old single mom working a tiring job at a news station in Boston. Having lost her husband several years earlier, Mackenzie no longer believes in “Happily Ever After,” but Eleanor is determined to fix that frown upside down and find what truly makes her happy.
