A new animated Disney musical movie? Yes please.
Whether you're a Disney lover, a true child at heart or just love some amazing animation (with catchy tunes to match), there's nothing quite like cosying down with a Disney film, is there?
Well, get prepared to add a brand new one to your watchlist, as Disney's new movie Wish is coming to the big screen this November.
And as if we couldn't be more excited to watch the new musical comedy, a brand new trailer has just dropped, giving us our first glimpse of the star-studded voice cast and stellar animation.
In the trailer, we meet bubbly 17-year-old heroine Asha (voiced by Ariana DeBose) who gets the chance to become King Magnifico's (Chris Pine) apprentice. When she's let in on his wish-making secrets, she's soon at a moral crossroads.
As he shows her the wishes of Rosas, the King tell her: "People give their wishes to me and I grant the wishes I am sure are good for Rosas." But Asha is confused, asking: "Some of these will never be granted?"

The charismatic King then answers simply: "Some? Most ... I decide what everyone deserves."
It prompts Asha to run into the night and make a wish on a star, which only seems to have a magical effect on Rosas, unlike anything anyone's seen before.

As well as having a typically Disney story at the heart of it, we can't forget that this is the same studio that has brought us hit films like Frozen and Moana - so something tells us this is going to be good.
According to the synopsis: "Wish is an all-new musical-comedy welcoming audiences to 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."
