Disney has released a clip of Academy Award-winning actor Ariana DeBose appearing at Disneyland Paris to perform “This Wish” before Le Chateau de la Belle au Bois Dormant—Sleeping Beauty Castle.
The performance, which features breathtaking castle projections, fountains and “Wish”-themed drones lighting up the night sky, can be seen on ABC’s rockin’ annual special “The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration” on Sunday 26th November 2023 at 8:00-10:00 p.m. EST and it will be available the next day on Hulu and Disney+.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Wish” is an all-new musical-comedy welcoming audiences to the magical kingdom of Rosas, where 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.
Check out the sneak peek below:
“This Wish” is one of seven original songs penned by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Julia Michaels and Grammy-winning producer-songwriter-musician Benjamin Rice.

With a screenplay by Jennifer Lee and Allison Moore, plus an original score by composer Dave Metzger
