Wish Celebrates Disney History

Scheduled for a November 22nd release, Wish unveils the captivating journey of a young woman named Asha in the enchanting realm of Rosas, nestled within the Iberian Peninsula. This cinematic tale revolves around Asha’s bold confrontation with the enigmatic King Magnifico, who harbors an insatiable appetite for accumulating the wishes of his subjects. Notably, the film stars the Academy Award-winning sensation Ariana DeBose, renowned for her remarkable performance in West Side Story, alongside the exceptionally talented Chris Pine.

What sets Wish apart is its pioneering animation style, unlike anything ever witnessed in a Disney animated feature before. While it retains the essence of the modern Disney classics on the surface, this production leverages cutting-edge technology to craft scenes with an alluring two-dimensional painted aesthetic, ensuring a visually distinctive and captivating viewing experience.

While no official date was given for her debut, the November 22 release date means it will likely be before the end of the year. Asha has been described as a really fun character by the people who have seen early footage. She should prove a fun new princess for children and families to interact with.
