The first trailer has been released for Disney's new animated epic, Wish.
The movie was in development by Jennifer Lee as far back as 2018, but it was not officially announced by Disney as an upcoming project until two years later.
The official premise of Wish:
'In the Kingdom of Rosas, located off of the Iberian Peninsula, a 17-year-old girl named Asha senses a darkness that no one else does about the kingdom's ruler, King Magnifico. This eventually leads to her trying to make a passionate plea to the stars in a moment of need. Soon, an actual star from the sky named Star answers Asha's wish. After the star falls from the sky, it is revealed that the star has magical powers to grant wishes as well. Together, Asha and Star must overcome the evils rising in Rosas and fight for a better future in order to have something better than what they already have and for all dreams to come true for the people of Rosas.'
Wish cast: Ariana DeBose, Chris Pine, Alan Tudyk, Angelique Cabral, Victor Garber, Natasha Rothwell, Jennifer Kumiyama, Evan Peters, Harvey Guillén, Ramy Youssef, Niko Vargas, Della Saba, and Jon Rudnitsky
Wish takes inspiration from the 100th anniversary of Disney as it embraces the Disney trope of wishes coming true. It is a celebration of all the movies that feature this plot point that came before.
It will be released in theaters on 22 November 2023.
