Disney's Wish movie

Wish, Disney’s captivating venture unfolds in the whimsical Kingdom of Rosas, nestled off the Iberian Peninsula. The narrative centers around the spirited 17-year-old Asha, who, unlike others, discerns a sinister aura surrounding the kingdom’s ruler, King Magnifico​​. This realization propels her to implore the stars fervently in a dire moment, summoning an actual star named Star from the cosmos. This celestial entity, upon descent, reveals its mystical ability to grant wishes, entangling Asha in a quest against the burgeoning evils in Rosas to secure a hopeful future for her people​​.

The tale extends beyond an ordinary adventure, embodying a profound exploration of wishes morphing into reality, reflecting a recurring theme celebrated across numerous Disney creations​​. This animation marvel, curated by directors Chris Buck and Fawn Veerasunthorn, is also a musical fantasy that melds modern computer animation with Disney’s vintage watercolor animation style, crafting a visually enthralling experience​​. The robust ensemble cast led by Ariana DeBose (as Asha) and Chris Pine (as King Magnifico) lends their voices to bring this enchanted world alive, alongside Alan Tudyk, Angelique Cabral, and others, encapsulating a tale of hope, magic, and the unyielding spirit of community​2​.

As Asha’s impassioned wish takes form, it not only unveils the misdeeds of King Magnifico but also fosters camaraderie, resilience, and the indomitable spirit of a community yearning for justice and prosperity. Through a blend of humor, adventure, and heart, Disney’s Wish is poised to be a narrative that resonates with both the young and the young-at-heart, embodying the timeless Disney tradition of nurturing hope and dreams amidst adversities.

I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
