About the film:
A heartfelt celebration of the magic of Disney, and a joyful new entry to the studio’s animated film legacy, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Wish will soon be available for families to enjoy at home. Fans can enjoy a sing-along movie version, never-before-seen bonus features and deleted scenes when the film becomes available from all major digital retailers including Prime Video, Apple TV, and Vudu on January 23 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD March 12.

A heartwarming and magical story, Wish has been described as “Wondrous” (Sabina Graves, Gizmodo), “Enchanting” (Kristen Lopez, The Wrap) and “more than a film. It’s a love letter to the art of dreaming and the power of hope” (Kevin Fenix, The Illuminerdi).

Soon, Asha and Star must face a formidable foe—the ruler of Rosas—to save her community and prove that when one brave human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things happen.

My review:
This was a cute movie, albeit more one for kids. Star was very cute too, and kind of reminded me of Kirby the video game character. 

When people in Asha's kingdom turn 18, they're allowed to submit a wish to King Magnifico, the ruler of Rosas (voiced by Chris Pine). It's seemingly random on how the king picks what wishes he will fulfill—for example, Asha's grandpa (voiced by Victor Garber), who is turning 100 that year, has not had his wish fulfilled yet.

The king seems benevolent, at first—but we soon learn he has a dark side.

The songs in this film were rather catchy, and I enjoyed them. That being said, I'd give this movie 3/5 stars, because although I overall liked it, I feel like Disney has put out better movies in the last year or two (for example, Elemental was great) versus this one, which might explain why I didn't see a lot of promotion for it.
