Earlier this week, Walt Disney Animation Studios released a new trailer and poster for Wish (via Toonado.com) ahead of its debut exclusively in theaters on November 22.
This sneak peek introduces 17-year-old Asha, the powerful King Magnifico, Asha's pet goat Valentino, and Star, a celestial ball of boundless energy that Asha's wish calls down from the sky. It 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.
The animated musical-comedy will take us to Rosas, a fantastical land located off the Iberian Peninsula.
"Our heroine, Asha, lives in Rosas, known as the kingdom of wishes," director Chris Buck, who helms Wish alongside Fawn Veerasunthorn, explains. "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 adds, "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."
In Wish, Asha, 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 - 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 movie features the voices of Academy Award-winning actor Ariana DeBose as Asha, Wonder Woman star Chris Pine as Magnifico, and Alan Tudyk as Asha's favourite goat, Valentino.
