Disney has released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming Walt Disney Animation’s classic film, “Wish”, which introduces Asha, a sharp-witted idealist who 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 set out to prove that when the will of one courageous human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things can happen.
The film stars Ariana DeBose, who voices a young woman named Asha in the film and Chris Pine plays the role of King Magnifico, who is the ruler of Rosas, a magical kingdom where wishes really do come true.
Director Chris Buck, who helms the film with Fawn Veerasunthorn said in a statement:
“Our heroine, Asha, lives in Rosas, known as the kingdom of wishes,” said “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.”
“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.”
