Disney descends upon Marblehead to film new movie

MARBLEHEAD, MASS. (WHDH) - Disney film crews will be in Marblehead on Wednesday to start filming a new movie that will later be released on the media giant’s new streaming service.

“Walt Disney is coming to town…'” Tory’s Jewelry said in a Facebook post. ” Christmas decorations return we are told but will come down on Thursday. Just like New England’s weather: ever-changing.”

Tory’s Jewelry says it will be closed Wednesday to accommodate filming.

Marblehead, which is home to about 20,000 North Shore residents, is being portrayed as a ski town in the new film, the local business said.

Filming of the Disney+ original movie ‘Godmothered’ is slated to go on until March.

The film is being directed by Sharon Maguire.
