Chris Pine joins the cast of Disney Animations Studios latest film, WISH as the villain and now, we get a sneak peak at one of the songs from the film.
"This Is The Thanks I Get" looks to be the next big villain song from Disney Animation and now, you can view a 60 second clip from the upcoming film featuring the song.
Pine, known for his turn as Captain James T. Kirk in the rebranded Star Trek series (that we are still waiting on for another featured film) will play King Magnifico who has the power to grant wishes.
Disney tags it as a film where people come from all over to have their wishes granted, a promise the king has made to grant but never says when he will.
The film wraps around one citizen whose "wish" was so strong that it is "answered by a cosmic force."
Of course, this is not something that the King wants and that is the story that unfolds as they young Asha and Star, a little ball of energy, set out to save her village.
The film will release later this year on November 22, but the soundtrack will be available on November 17th in full.
Director Fawn Veerasunthorn had this to say about the song.
" For ‘This Is The Thanks I Get?!’ we knew we wanted Magnifico to be charming and, of course, evil. He’s also funny! In the song, he cracks jokes—he’s narcissistic. But it’s all tongue-in-cheek and he’s still somehow completely likable, which is great for a villain.”"- Veerasunthorn
Disney also has partnered with Amazon on a "Wish Together" initiative as they call it that will hopefully bring over $1 million in toys to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. There is a list that you can help contribute to at Amazon.com.
In all, Julia Michaels and Benjamin Rice wrote seven original songs for the upcoming film including "This Is The Thanks I Get". Will this be Disney's next big hit? It does appear to have the potential and this song is pretty good.
Disney also released a behind the scenes look as well.
