Disney’s Wish [2023] – Ariana DeBose, Chris Pine

Wish - Disney+ Canada April 2024

Disney’s Wish is another dreamy film from Disney Animation. It’s good, but it could have been much petter if the songs didn’t get in the way.

In Wish, Disney gets in its own way. It might be the left over from the previous CEO era, but Wish has a lot of wasted potential.

Starring Ariana DeBose, Chris Pine, and a smaller role for Alan Tudyk, the movie chooses to honor Disney’s history in the most linear and conservative way possible. While it doesn’t have catchy songs or a sound plot like Encanto, the film still manages to bring the public a simplicity and candor that we haven’t seen in a long time. Yes, it has issues, especially those awful songs, but it still enjoyed it.

However, as much as I enjoyed, it, the movie feels soulless at times. But, it is a step in the right direction for Disney Animation Studios, as the company acknowledges they have fresh characters, not merely sequels, even if the characters retread classic storylines.

Should You Watch It?

Another Disney animation movie that follows the tested and proved formula. However, the songs aren’t the best and will certainly be forgotten.
