The trailer for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ musical-comedy Wish introduces audiences to the magical world of Rosas located off the Iberian Peninsula.
17-year-old Asha (Ariana DeBose) makes a wish to the magical King Magnifico (Chris Pine) that is answered by a cosmic force — a little ball of boundless energy named Star. Asha and Star work together to confront a formidable foe in Magnifico and save her community. The trailer also introduces Valentino (Alan Tudyk), Asha’s pet goat.
The animation style used in Wish is unlike anything Disney has produced previously. Steering away from their traditional, in-house animation style, Wish features a mixture of 2D and 3D animations. Because of this “storybook-esque” feel, many of the shots in the trailer look like concept art as opposed to stills in the movie.
Wish is directed by Oscar-winning director Chris Buck (Frozen, Frozen 2) and Fawn Veerasunthorn (Raya and the Last Dragon), produced by Peter Del Vecho (Frozen, Frozen 2) and co-produced by Juan Pablo Reyes (Encanto). Jennifer Lee (Frozen, Frozen 2) executive produces and serves as a co-writer with Allison Moore (Night Sky, Manhunt). Wish features original songs by Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Julia Michaels and Grammy-winning producer/songwriter/musician Benjamin Rice. Dave Metzger composed the score.
Wish opens in theaters on Nov. 22.
