Asha is the one who wishes upon a star, and low and behold, a star actually comes out of the sky to assist her on her mission. We’re talking a chubby little star with tiny arms and feet and a point on his head. Now, while Star is magical, there’s a limit to what he can do. The bigger the wish, the harder the journey, and it seems like Asha is going to be making a pretty sizable wish.
Alan Tudyk (“Firefly,” “Rogue One”) is in the movie, playing a pajama-wearing goat named Valentino. Tudyk was on hand to show some test footage of Star interacting with the goat. Star sprinkles some stardust on Valentino, who is surprised to hear himself talk. So surprised, actually, that he went stiff and fell over, as scared goats are prone to do, as you well know if you’ve scrolled through TikTok for more than three minutes.
“Wish” will be a musical (of course it will) and the songs are written by Grammy-winning songwriter Julia Michaels, who is known for penning hit songs for Dua Lipa, Pink, and many more. DeBose was on hand to sing one of these songs, called “More for Us,” which our man on the ground says is a belter very much in the classic Disney style.
“Wish” is slated to come out in 2023, which will the Disney’s 100th anniversary. Fitting that they’re capping off their first 100 years of magic with a movie called “Wish,” don’t you think?
