Disney fans have been waiting for them to bring back their classic musical animated style back on screen since Moana (2016) which has now been seven years since its initial release. Lately, with all the company’s lackluster stories, prioritizing their political agenda, or lifeless live action remakes, Disney’s reputation is at an all time low. Although I can’t deny some great exceptions in the 2010s like Wreck it Ralph (2012) and Zootopia (2016) and even Encanto (2021), I won’t lie that I’ve been losing hope in the company completely.
However, in the recent news, Disney Animations released previews of their next upcoming film Wish which is set to release later this year.

Wish, formerly titled Foster, is an upcoming American animated musical film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. It is scheduled to be released on November 22, 2023 and will be the 62nd animated feature in the Disney Animated Canon. The film will be written by Jennifer Lee and directed by Chris Buck and Fawn Veerasunthorn. Asha, a 17-year-old heroine who’s driven, incredibly smart and an optimist, a sharp-witted leader in the making who sees darkness that others do not. She’s navigating a Kingdom of Wishes, where wishes can literally come true. Asha makes an impassioned plea to the stars, wishing for guidance and help, and ends up bringing an actual star — a cosmic force that’s a literal ball of energy and communicates through pantomime — down from the sky.
