Fans already delighted by the film, which is directed by Bridget Jones's Diary director Sharon Maguire, with one commenting: "I'm getting 2000s Disney vibes from this. I'm happy they're not just making 100 million blockbuster films anymore, these smaller films have been missing from the company for like four years now. I'm happy they're doing them again."

Another added: "This is going to be the best movie on Disney+." A third person wrote: "This looks fun to watch at #Christmas! I’ll watch #Godmothered after watching #Noelle on #DisneyPlus when it arrives next Friday in the UK." 

Others were quick to compare the film to Elf and Enchanted. One person wrote: "Okay, #Godmothered is giving off major Elf vibes IMO... and I’m HERE for it!" Another added: "This is basically ENCHANTED but with less Amy Adams."
