In the enchanting world of Disney’s latest animation, “WISH: The Power of Dreams,” we find ourselves immersed in a tale that intertwines the magic of dreams with the cosmic allure of stardust. This narrative is beautifully encapsulated in the film’s newest song, “I’m a Star,” a masterpiece crafted by the Grammy®-nominated singer-songwriter Julia Michaels and Grammy® winner Benjamin Rice. The song, featuring a diverse ensemble of 22 soloists, breathes life into a vibrant forest of animals and plants, each character adding a unique voice to the melody.

A Serenade of Nature and Dreams

“I’m a Star” is not just a song; it’s a serenade that resonates with the core theme of the movie. Director Fawn Veerasunthorn shares, “The song represents what Estrella stands for. It’s a reminder to Asha, the protagonist, that she is not alone in her journey to pursue her dreams.” This musical piece is a celebration of connection, not just with others but also with the universe itself.

The Stellar Journey of Asha and Estrella

At the heart of “WISH” is Asha, a character brimming with optimism and wit. Her journey begins with a wish so powerful that it summons Estrella, a cosmic entity embodying boundless energy. Together, they embark on an adventure to confront the formidable King Magnífico and save their community. This narrative beautifully illustrates that when human will aligns with the magic of the stars, extraordinary things can happen.

A Star-Studded Cast and Crew

The film boasts an impressive lineup, with Academy Award® winner Ariana DeBose lending her voice to Asha, alongside Chris Pine and Alan Tudyk. Under the direction of Oscar® winner Chris Buck and Fawn Veerasunthorn, and with the production expertise of Peter Del Vecho and Juan Pablo Reyes, “WISH” is set to be a cinematic marvel. The executive production by Jennifer Lee and the scriptwriting by Lee and Allison Moore further elevate the film’s artistic and narrative depth.

A Legacy of Musical Animals in Disney Animation

Chris Buck, the director, highlights Disney’s rich history of musical animals, drawing inspiration from iconic characters like Baloo and Sebastian. “WISH” pays homage to these classics, especially with its forest creatures reminiscent of Snow White and Aurora’s enchanting moments. “I’m a Star” is more than just a song; it’s a tribute to this legacy, promising to captivate audiences with its vivid animation and heartfelt message.
