Starring: Ariana DeBose, Chris Pine, Alan Tudyk
Disney animated musical comedy directed by Chris Buck and Fawn Veerasunthorn. Wish (2023) centers on Asha (Ariana DeBose), a sharp-witted idealist, who 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 (Chris Pine), 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.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
King Magnifico: Imagine a place where wishes come true. Where your heart’s desire can become a reality. What if I told you that place is within reach? All you have to do is give your wish to me.
King Magnifico: Are you ready Rosas! Who is ready to have their wish granted?
King Magnifico: I grant your heart’s desire.
Asha: Three, two, one! I’m here! I’m here! Wooh! Just one second. Let me catch my breath.
Asha: Once upon a time, stood Rosas, a most magical kingdom, founded by a king with the power to grant wishes.
Queen Amaya: You are their handsomest, most beloved sorcerer king.
King Magnifico: You’re right. I am a handsome king.
Asha: I’m so nervous. I think I’m going to explode.
Dahlia: My best friend, the King’s apprentice.
Asha: Is my mouth drooping? I feel like it’s drooping.
King Magnifico: Asha, come with me.
King Magnifico: The wishes of Rosas.
King Magnifico: People give their wishes to me, and I grant the wishes I am sure are good for Rosas.
Asha: Some of these will never be granted?
King Magnifico: Not some, most.
Asha: They deserve more than…
King Magnifico: I decide what everyone deserves!
Asha: I wish…
Asha: [as she sees a ball of light] Woh. Woh! What was that?
Asha: [referring to Star’s fairy dust] Woh, what are you doing?! Valentino, don’t eat that!
Valentino: It didn’t work. When does that magic happen? Ah! I’m talking! I am talking! Who knew my voice would be this low?
Asha: [singing] So I look up at the stars to guide me. And throw caution to every warning sign. I’m sure there will be challenges that find me, but I can take them on one at a time.
Asha: [singing] More than this. So I make this wish. To have something more for us than this.
Queen Amaya: Oh, you spoil us with your magic.
King Magnifico: I didn’t do it.
Queen Amaya: What?
Asha: Last night, I made a wish, on a star. And the star answered.
Gabo: What are you, five?
Valentino: I’m talking. I am talking. Ha! Who knew my voice would be this low?
Asha: King Magnifico has wishes in the castle. He’ll never give them back. We have to free the wishes and return them to the people.
King Magnifico: I believe I have just been threatened.
Queen Amaya: Who would dare threaten you?
Asha: Wah! Huh! Yuh! Yah!
Gabo: I have no response to that.
King Magnifico: There is a traitor amongst us. Find Asha!
Asha: It’s a dead end.
Valentino: With unsanded mahogany.
Asha: Ooh. Good find, Valentino.
Valentino: My butt found it.
Asha: I started this. I have to finish it, for everyone.
Hal: What are you hiding?
Asha: Oh! Nothing!
Valentino: [from behind the door] Life is to be lived!
Asha: And nobody.
Dahlia: What is going on in there?
Valentino: [as Asha opens the door, to the chickens] Okay, ladies! Your wings can’t fly, but your voices can!
Valentino: [to the horses] From domesticated animal to another, help us!
