Disney Wish is a charming love letter about Disney’s stories over the last 100 years. The film beautifully weaves in easter eggs of past Disney films and characters and reminds audiences that dreams really do come true.
Disney Wish Movie Review
I was invited as media to cover this event. All opinions are my own.
About the film:
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Wish” is an all-new musical-comedy welcoming audiences to the magical kingdom of Rosas, where Asha, a sharp-witted idealist, makes a wish so powerful that it is answered by a cosmic force—a little ball of boundless energy called Star. Together, Asha and Star confront a most formidable foe—the ruler of Rosas, King Magnifico—to save her community and prove that when the will of one courageous human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things can happen. Featuring the voices of Academy Award®-winning actor Ariana DeBose as Asha, Chris Pine as Magnifico, and Alan Tudyk as Asha’s favorite goat, Valentino.
While Asha is interviewing for an apprentice position at the castle, she is welcomed behind the King’s secret room full of the community’s wishes. As a precocious teenager, she asks a lot of questions and soon realizes that the King does not have the community’s best interest at heart.
While wishing upon a star that evening, a miracle happens and a star is born! Soon Asha is singing along with the forest’s memorable characters as she finds the strength to right a wrong and save her community.
This heartwarming tale reminds us of the enduring power of dreams and that all you need to do is believe.
As mentioned previously, the film is full of recognizable characters from past Disney films. (I won’t spoil it for you!) The magical visuals and storytelling take audiences on a captivating journey that the whole family will enjoy. This film is for everyone who dares to dream!
It will leave you with a smile on your face and a wonderful message for all.
We highly recommend seeing Disney’s Wish in theaters beginning this Wednesday, Nov. 22nd, 2023.
