“Wish: Asha and the Lucky Star”: Finally an excellent Disney!

The animated film was dubbed by Ariana DeBose and Chris Pine and developed by a team snow Queenis fun for young and old, allowing studios to finally reconnect with the quality that made them famous.

For several years, Disney studios have been struggling to find their mark, and the overall quality of their productions has been suffering, come to think of it. Encanto: The Magnificent Madrigal Family Or even for Avalonia, a strange world That no one else reads. Luckily, Wish: Asha and the lucky star It is a great movie.

Designed for the 100 markH Anniversary Of The Studios Founded By Walt Disney, Wish: Asha and the lucky star It starts with the central idea of ​​all of the company’s animated fairy tales, which is the granting of a star’s wish. The script is signed by Jennifer Lee, studio director and project manager snow QueenAnd by Alison Moore transports us to the kingdom of Rosas. There, Magnifico (voice of Chris Pine in the original), a king who is as nervous as he is controlling and full of himself, jealously monitors the desires presented to him by his subjects. He only gives one per month; The person who poses the least danger to Rosas during a lavish party to which the entire kingdom has been invited.

However, Asha (voice of Ariana DeBose), a young girl who only aspires to be Magnifico’s apprentice, finds this practice unfair. In order to oppose the king’s wishes, she can count on the help of Star, a lovable little star descended from the sky, and Valentino (voice of Alan Tudyk), a goat with a cheerful voice.

Beauty Festival

A true tribute to all the classic animated films from the venerable House of Mouse and under the expert supervision of directors Chris Buck and von Vierasunthorn, Wish: Asha and the lucky star It resembles watercolors, suggesting drawings Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937), from Dumbo (1941) and even Lilo and Stitch (2002). The most surprising thing is that the animation team also managed to incorporate the refined and modern images of the film sleeping Princess (1959), a masterpiece that resonates even in… snow Queen!

And these aren’t the only references to Disney classics. to Bambi (1942) to imaginary (1940), even Alice in Wonderland (1951) or Cinderella (1950), references and winks are included in almost every scene, causing a certain happiness and wonder.

The scenario is a worthy successor to snow Queen And based on Raya and the Last Dragon. We are once again (and that’s a good thing) far from the princess waiting for her prince. Asha is a modern, confident girl who does not lack humor (the Valentino goat is also perfect for humor).

As in the past, the songs – yes, they are music – Well integrated, the pieces work to enrich the theme and move the story forward. We will especially note This is the thanks I get?!performed by Chris Pine (yes, he can sing!), is a little gem of satire as Magnifico complains about the lack of recognition from his subjects.

It will be an uphill battle during the Oscars on March 10. from Wish: Asha and the lucky star And Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse Will he walk away with the higher reward? The choice is so difficult that we are beginning to hope for equality between the two films.
