Disney’s Centenary Celebrations Introduce ‘Wish’ Character Posters

by admin
Disney 100th anniversary

2023 marks a century since the establishment of Disney, and the studio is commemorating this significant milestone with the upcoming animated movie, ‘Wish.’ The release of new character posters from the movie has been announced. The film is directed by Chris Buck, known for his work on Disney favorites like Tarzan, Pocahontas, and the Frozen franchise, and Fawn Veerasunthorn, who has credits on films such as Moana and Zootopia. ‘Wish’ narrates the adventure of a young girl who aligns with a magical entity to defeat a ruthless King.

The film’s voice cast includes Ariana DeBose (West Side Story), who portrays the emerging leader, Asha, and Chris Pine (Wonder Woman) as King Magnifico, with Alan Tudyk (Harley Quinn) also featured as Valentino. The synopsis of the movie reads:

“Wish,” a musical-comedy from Walt Disney Animation Studios, welcomes audiences to the enchanting kingdom of Rosas. Asha, a bright and idealistic protagonist, makes a wish that attracts a cosmic entity – a tiny ball of infinite energy named Star. Together, they face a formidable adversary, King Magnifico, to rescue her community. The story underlines the idea that extraordinary things can occur when human courage aligns with cosmic magic.

The film aims to pay tribute to Disney’s century-long legacy, drawing inspiration from the studio’s legendary song, “When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio. The trailer, first launched in April, displayed a delightful blend of 2D and 3D animation, symbolizing the studio’s evolutionary journey. As with any Disney film, the music plays a key role, with the score for ‘Wish’ composed by David Metzger, and songs penned by Julia Michaels and Benjamin Rice. As part of Disney’s centenary celebrations, the company has released several titles that honor its history, including the recent releases of The Little Mermaid and Peter Pan & Wendy, and has added 28 freshly restored and remastered classic short films to Disney+.
