Back in September we shared exclusive details on the fairy godmother film Frills coming to Disney+. Now, we have more to share with you on the project.
We have exclusively learned that production is slated to begin on January 15, 2020 in Boston Massachusetts and is expected to wrap up sometime in March 2020.
We have also learned the plot and have some character breakdowns to share with you, as the studio is currently casting.
A young fairy godmother who comes from a magical-gothic parallel universe and attempts to help a single mother who thinks she will never get a fairytale ending.
Godmother: She wants to help Alice and her two daughters fulfill their dreams, becomes the daughters (Jane and Mia) babysitter.
Alice: Single mother with two daughters, she seeks the help of a fairy godmother to help with her kids and find new love.
Jane: Oldest daughter who hopes to become a famous singer.
Mia: Youngest daughter.
Mr. Clancy: An older man who is known as a singer.
It is unlikely that this film will center on the Helen Bonham Carter Fairy Godmother from Disney’s 2015 live-action Cinderella, as the studio is looking to cast an actress in their 20s-30s, however it is still unknown if this exists in the same universe as the 2015 film.
Directed by Sharon Maguire (Bridget Jones franchise), Justin Springer (Dumbo, TRON: Legacy) will produce the project. Writers Kari Granlund (Lady and The Tramp) and Melissa Stack (The Other Woman) are also on board the project.
Frills is the latest Disney+ original film in development and will join a growing slate of original films exclusive to the service that include Noelle, Togo, Timmy Failure, Stargirl, Secret Society of Second Born Royals, Safety, Flora & Ulysses, Home Alone, Hocus Pocus 2, Shrunk, Peter Pan, Sword In The Stone, Cheaper By The Dozen, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Night At The Museum, Sister Act 3, Prince Anders, amongst many others.
