Wish – a gorgeous animation from the makers of Frozen – revolves around the origins of the star that has been present in most Disney movies for the last 100 years.
In the Kingdom of Rosas, a 17-year-old girl named Asha (Ariana DeBose) senses a darkness that no one else does about the kingdom’s ruler, King Magnifico (Chris Pine). 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 for their people.
Combining next gen technology with timeless storytelling, Wish looks like nothing you’ve seen before and feels exactly like your favourite Disney animated feature — whichever it is. A celebration of hope, community and self-actualisation and a century of Disney magic. It has all the hallmarks of a classic Disney animation. Not one to miss.
