This morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Walt Disney Animation Studios released a first look trailer for its next film, “Wish,” which will be in theaters November 22, 2023.
Set in the magical kingdom of Rosas, the story introduces 17-year old Princess 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.
The film also stars Chris Pine (“Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves”) as King Magnifico, and Disney Animation’s lucky charm Alan Tudyk as Valentino, Princess Asha’s pet goat.
“Wish” is helmed by Oscar®-winning director Chris Buck (“Frozen,” “Frozen 2”) and Fawn Veerasunthorn (“Raya and the Last Dragon”), produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Frozen,” “Frozen 2”) and co-produced by Juan Pablo Reyes (“Encanto”).
Jennifer Lee (“Frozen,” “Frozen 2”) executive produces, and she and Allison Moore (“Night Sky,” “Manhunt”) are writers on the project.
The film will be Disney Animation’s 62nd feature film, and was first announced at D23 Expo 2022.
Welcome to Rosas, a fantastical land located off the Iberian Peninsula, known as “the kingdom of wishes.” People come from everywhere to give their wishes to the magical King Magnifico, who promises to grant their deepest desires…someday. Only he can decide which wishes will come true and when.
It’s here we first meet Princess Asha and her pet goat Valentino, as they literally wish upon a star…which turns out to be real.
The trailer also features a snippet of the song “This Wish,” performed by Ariana DeBose. It’s one of several new songs written by Julia Michaels and Benjamin Rice for the film.
