‘Godmothered’ Review: Disney’s Latest is a Merely Okay Retread of ‘Enchanted’ and ‘Elf’

Disney cannot resist cannibalizing itself, even after it’s had a good helping. The existence of Disney+ allows the larger company to continue remaking its animated films in live-action form, or rebooting them, or re-imagining them, or re-whatever-ing them. The new Disney+ film Godmothered would fall into the “re-imagining” camp; it’s not officially a remake of Cinderella , the 1950 film that made the concept of the fairy godmother feel like an iconic Disney creation. Instead, Godmothere...

They Let Roberto Benigni Make Another ‘Pinocchio’ Movie, and the English-Language Version is Opening this Christmas

Roberto Benigni became an international star after he won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his work in Life is Beautiful, a film Benigni also directed and co-wrote. But Benigni’s star plummeted a bit in the years to come, worsened by his directorial follow-up, 2002’s Pinocchio. The live-action take on the classic tale was critically panned, most notably for the fact that the middle-aged Benigni cast himself as the puppet boy. You might think that experience would keep Benigni away from all-t...

Noah Hawley Says We Shouldn’t Expect His ‘Star Trek’ Movie or ‘Alien’ TV Series Anytime Soon (Or Maybe Ever)
