Listen to “This Wish” and read the lyrics in the video below.

“Wish” is a musical comedy using a mix of 2D and 3D animation as an homage to Disney’s animation history. It takes audiences “to the magical kingdom of Rosas, where Asha [DeBose], 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 [Chris Pine]—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.” It also features Alan Tudyk as Asha’s goat friend Valentino.

“Wish” is directed by Chris Buck (“Frozen,” “Frozen II”) and Fawn Veerasunthorn (“Raya and the Last Dragon”), from a script by Jennifer Lee (“Frozen,” “Frozen 2”) and Allison Moore (“Night Sky,” “Manhunt”). It’s produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Frozen,” “Frozen II”) and Juan Pablo Reyes (“Encanto”), and executive produced by Lee. It features original songs by Julia Michaels and Benjamin Rice, and a score by David Metzger (“Tarzan,” “Frozen,” “Frozen II”).

Buck said of the film, “Our heroine, Asha, lives in Rosas, known as the kingdom of wishes. People come from everywhere to give their wishes to a magical king who promises to grant their deepest desires—someday. Only he can decide which wishes will come true and when.”

Veerasunthorn added, “We have been inspired by so many iconic films over Disney Animation’s 100 years, especially stories where we explore the power of someone with a wish, combined with the conviction to make that wish come true. Being able to honor that legacy with this incredible story and these amazing characters has been a joy for our entire team.”

Buck and Veerasunthorn said the film will feature many “legacy nods” to classic Disney films. “Wish” seeks to answer the question, “How did the wishing star upon which so many of our beloved characters wish come to be?”
