Walt Disney Animation Studios is about to release its 62nd feature film, and I can’t wait!!
This film is called Wish, and it asks the question, “How did the wishing star come to be?”
You know the wishing star. The one from Pinnochio — with the Blue Fairy.
When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are. Anything your heart desires will come to you.Jiminy Cricket
I, for one, can’t WAIT to find out the origin of the star in my FAVORITE Disney movie.
The synopsis of the new Disney Animation Studios film Wish sounds so good!
Set in the magical kingdom of Rosas, the story introduces Asha (voice of Ariana DeBose), an optimist with a sharp wit who deeply cares about her community. When Asha turns to the sky in a moment of need and makes a wish, her plea is answered by a cosmic force—a little ball of boundless energy called Star. Together, they face the most formidable of foes 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.Disney Fandom
Of course, being a Disney film, there is going to be tons of music and tons of singing — all original, of course.
A lot of that singing is going to come from West Side Story Oscar winner Ariana DeBose, who is voicing the lead character, Asha.
I’m really excited that little girls can identify with this character and have a character that, she’s not one thing, she’s many, many things, like many of the Disney characters — But how cool is it that she can sort of be created in an image like mine? I think that’s amazing.Ariana DeBose
You can catch the trailer for Wish, which is set to premier November 22, below.
What do you think? Are you as excited as me?
