Disney has been in a bit of a box office rut these past couple of years, but that could change come November with the release of their next animated musical, Wish.
Following the teaser released back in April, Disney has now shared the full trailer for the upcoming film and it looks to be a return to form for Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Wish is a welcomed return to Disney's princess roots, transporting audiences to the magical kingdom of Rosas, where Asha, a sharp-witted idealist, makes a wish so powerful that it is answered by a cosmic force, called Star.
Threatened by this new magic, King Magnifico sets out to capture the "traitor." From that, I can only assume we'll embark on a magical journey filled with courage, emotion and wonder.
Based only on the trailer, it feels like a return to form for Walt Disney Animation Studios and could be the win the studio so desperately needs at the box office. Wish has all the makings of the next big hit -- from the courageous young princess to the adorable animal sidekick to the moving music.
Wish is set to open in theaters in the United States on November 22. Disney has typically had success releasing movies during the extended Thanksgiving weekend which bodes well for a movie that is already receiving praise.
In addition to sharing the official trailer, Disney has also revealed an extended cast list. Ariana DeBose voices the 17-year-old heroine Ahsa, while Chris Pine lends his voice to King Magnifico. Voicing Asha's pet goat Valentino is Alan Tudyk, and his deep voice perfectly juxtaposes with the adorable animal.
Starring alongside them is Angelique Cabral as Queen Amaya, wife of King Magnifico; Victor Garber as Sabino, Asha's grandfather who has been waiting decades for his wish to be granted; and Natasha Rothwell as Sakina, Asha's loving and supportive mom.
