Disney has announced some more details on a brand new documentary from National Geographic about the newest addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet, the “Disney Wish”.

This new behind the scenes special has documented the creation of the ship, from the initial design, through to construction.

“Making the Wish: Disney’s Newest Cruise Ship” premieres on Christmas Eve, Saturday, 24th December 2022, at 9:00 p.m. EST on National Geographic Channel in the United States.  No Disney+ release has yet been announced, but I’d expect it to arrive at some point.

This 90-minute special follows the process of designing, constructing and launching the Disney Wish through the eyes of the incredible Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney Imagineering teams that brought the ship to life.

At the helm of this first-of-its-kind Disney Cruise Line documentary are National Geographic filmmakers Chad Cohen (director, writer and producer) and Bethany Jones (producer and writer) in partnership with Disney Yellow Shoes.

“At a two-centuries old shipyard on Germany’s North Sea, a marvel of modern engineering is taking shape. Hundreds of construction workers, engineers, architects, designers, animators, composers, storytellers, cast and crew are transforming 144,000 tons of steel into perhaps the most enchanting vessel ever to take to sea. They’re making the Disney Wish a reality.”
