Just ahead of the release of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ latest film, “Wish”, in cinemas on November 22nd 2023, Disney held a special world premiere of the film on Wednesday night at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre.
Attendees walking the magical blue carpet included Jennifer Lee (screenplay by, EP, CCO of Disney Animation), Chris Buck & Fawn Veerasunthorn (directed by), Peter Del Vecho & Juan Pablo Reyes Lancaster Jones (produced by), Julia Michaels & Benjamin Rice (original songs by) and Dave Metzger (original score composed by). A “Wish”-inspired magical drone show lit up the night sky in Hollywood to celebrate the occasion.
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.
The film features the voices of Academy Award-winning actor Ariana DeBose as Asha, Chris Pine as Magnifico, and Alan Tudyk as Asha’s favourite goat, Valentino, however, due to the actors’ strike still being in effect last night, they weren’t able to attend the event. However, Disney did pull in Asha from her performances at Disneyland to make a special appearance.
