WISH – Movie Review

Wish is a magical journey to Dsney’s enchanting kingdom of Rosas.

Disney Animation’s latest offering is “Wish.” It will transport audiences to the whimsical kingdom of Rosas. It is a magical realm filled with laughter, heart, and a powerful message about the magic within us. The film will be in theaters on November 22nd. It features enchanting voice performances by Ariana DeBose, Chris Pine, and Alan Tudyk, making it an absolute delight for audiences of all ages. You can attend a Free Advance Screening.

Ariana DeBose, voicing the 17-year-old heroine Asha, steals the show with her incredible voice performance and singing. DeBose’s talent adds depth to the character, making Asha relatable and endearing. Chris Pine, known for his on-screen charisma, surprises audiences with his singing abilities. It will leave you craving more of his musical talents in future projects. Alan Tudyk, while bringing fun to the film as the voice of Asha’s pet goat, Valentino, may not be a perfect match, yet his whimsical presence will surely entertain the younger audience.

The animation feels like a nostalgic trip to classic Disney films.

It captures the timeless magic that has defined the studio for decades. The nods to Disney‘s rich history evoke a celebration, hinting at a century of enchanting storytelling. Though not entirely memorable, the soundtrack features catchy tunes contributing to the film’s overall charm. Combined with spectacular animation, the songs create an immersive experience reminiscent of Disney’s golden era. The plot of “Wish” doesn’t delve too deep but swiftly plunges into action and magic, keeping the audience engaged from start to finish. While the storyline may be straightforward, it lays the groundwork for potential sequels and more Disney films in a similar style.

The additional voice cast, including Angelique Cabral, Victor Garber, and Natasha Rothwell, complements the main characters and adds fun to the kingdom of Rosas. The ensemble of Asha’s friends, portrayed by Jennifer Kumiyama, Evan Peters, Harvey Guillén, Ramy Youseff, Niko Vargas, Della Saba, and Jon Rudnitsky, brings a lively and diverse energy to the film, creating a tight-knit group that supports and protects Asha on her journey.


I give “Wish” 4 out of 5 stars. It is an ambitious musical-comedy directed by the Oscar-winning duo Chris Buck and Fawn Veerasunthorn, known for their work on “Frozen” and “Frozen 2.” This film is a magical journey that combines stellar voice performances, classic Disney animation, and a heartfelt narrative.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
