Description

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Wish” is a captivating, animated musical-comedy about the magical kingdom of Rosas, where Asha, a sharp-witted idealist, makes a wish so powerful that it is answered by a cosmic force—a little ball of boundless energy called Star. Together, Asha and Star confront a most formidable foe—the ruler of Rosas, King Magnifico—to save her community and prove that when the will of one courageous human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things can happen. Featuring the voices of Ariana DeBose as Asha, Chris Pine as Magnifico, and Alan Tudyk as Asha’s favorite goat, Valentino, the film is helmed by director Chris Buck (“Frozen,” “Frozen 2”) and Fawn Veerasunthorn (“Raya and the Last Dragon”), and produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Frozen,” “Frozen 2”) and Juan Pablo Reyes Lancaster Jones (“Encanto”). Jennifer Lee (“Frozen,” “Frozen 2”) executive produces, and Lee and Allison Moore (“Night Sky,” “Manhunt”) are writers on the project. Original songs are by singer/songwriter Julia Michaels and producer/songwriter/musician Benjamin Rice, with a score by composer Dave Metzger.

    The characters, plot, music, and execution was heavily flawed. The protagonist, Asha is a shallow ”copy paste” character. Her one personality trait is ”quirky and selfless woman who is kind to all,”which is a fine trait for a character but it is her ONLY ONE. She has no other traits, which is bad character writing you should know this Disney. Asha’s friends are only there to represent the 7 dwarfs, you know the characters from an actually GOOD Disney movie. So they could all be removed (exept one I guess but he was only there for a sUrpRiSE TwISt). If you have a large cast of main characters and can remove them all and nothing would change then you should probably remove them. The Star thing was okay… it mental kills me knowing he was suppost to turn into a boy and be Asha’s love interest. That was a great idea that should have been left in, it is devestating that modern Disney thinks falling in love is for weak characters. I hope the goat falls in a well and can never get out, thats my wish Disney you better answer it. The main antagonist was a let down. He never did anything ”evil” until a good fraction of the movie flew by (don’t get me wrong the movie didn’t ”Fly by” for me I just sat there in the theater praying that it would end quickly, it didn’t). Even during the climax he just stood there and didn’t do anything but shoot green energy blasts that DIDN’T DO ANYTHING. He was one of the worst written villians I have ever seen, that is saying a lot. The plot seems like it was written by AI, no I am not being overly critical I am dead serious. I don’t even want to write about it you can Google the script if you like wasting time. The music, walking into the theater I would expect a more theater, play, Broadway type of music, something that flows with the plot and the characters personal goals, like the Disney movies of the past. I was severly dissapointed to be met with generic pop music. I think this is because Disney is trying to make one of their songs be a hit or go viral, ”We don’t talk about bruno” is an example of this. They wanted the replicate that success so they were lazy. The lyrics make no sense in most of the songs and the big words they were going for clutters up the lyrics making the following lines sound stuffed. Most of the time it didn’t even rhyme, come on Disney you can’t remember how to make a song flow it is simple. I don’t even want to mention that horrendous excuse of a villian song ”This is the Thanks I get” is cringe. Are there ANY good points about Wish, no not really the animation somehow sucked, reminder the budget was $200 million yeah that much, they could have done anything else in the world with that money and they make probably one of the worst Disney movies if not the worse one ever. The execution was bad. As an aspiring writer/animator this hurts my soul. You could have done so much better. P.S sorry about the long review, I believe that critisism is only as good as its evidence. So I stated as much evidence as I could, you CAN 100% like this movie and you CAN 100% still go and check it out no one is stopping you :)

  • People just don’t appreciate good storytelling

    This Current Generation of “Human Beings” clearly don’t appreciate let alone recognize Good Storytelling, I “WISH” these so called “Humans” would throw their so called Agenda in the garbage and just enjoy the movie as it is! I’m very disappointed in humanity! With that out of the way Wish, as formulaic as it may be is warm, comforting, and has its heart in the right place.

    Ok, maybe not ground breaking but the theme is literally revolution and the right to pursue your dreams rather then waiting to be granted them. I think a lot of people will enjoy this if they give it a chance.
