Of all the movies released under the Walt Disney Company umbrella, it’s hard to think of one more exciting than Wish. Whether you agree or not, Disney has been under a ton of criticism over the content of their films, with some people thinking that they are trying to preach to their children.

This has caused some trepidation when it comes to theatrical audiences coming to see the company’s films. However, this doesn’t seem to be the case with Wish, an upcoming animated film that many Disney fans think will be a return to form for the beloved animation studio.

The movie follows the story of Asha (Ariana DeBose) in the Kingdom of Rosas as she senses darkness in the kingdom’s ruler, King Magnifico (Chris Pine). After making a plea to the stars, an actual star falls from the sky. It’s now up to her, Star, and her goat, Valentino (Alan Tudyk), to save the kingdom.

Naturally, Disney fans are unbelievably excited for this film to come out. But if you’ve been dying to see this movie and can’t wait until November 22, don’t worry! Disney has heard your wish and is making it come true.

2023 has been a big year for Disney, marking its 100th anniversary as a company. While there have been many different kinds of celebrations throughout the year, its most exciting offering may be coming up: early access to the upcoming animated musical adventure Wish.

Initially slated for release on November 22, Disney is sending the film to theaters nationwide for a special screening on November 18. Naturally, fans are ecstatic about this news. Still, no one seems happier than writer and producer Jennifer Lee, Disney Animation’s Chief Creative Officer, known for her work on Frozen (2013) and Frozen II (2019).
