About Wish Movie:

  • Fawn Veerasunthorn’s directorial debut.
  • It is Walt Disney Animation Studios’s 62nd animated feature film.
  • The film was first reported in January 2022, when it was revealed that Lee was writing an original film at Walt Disney Animation Studios. In September 2022, the project was officially announced, with the title being revealed alongside the voice cast.
  • The film is inspired by Disney’s 100th anniversary, which ties together a major theme across most Disney films—of wishes becoming reality.
  • On February 16, 2023, following the commercial failures of the company’s Strange World and Pixar Animation Studios’ Lightyear (both 2022), Disney reportedly considered extending the theatrical windows for both Wish and Pixar’s Elemental in hopes of bringing families back to theaters.
  • On June 15, 2023, at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, twenty minutes of footage from Wish were screened.
  • In July 2023, it was reported that Disney was considering postponing some of their 2023 releases, including Wish, due to the ongoing Hollywood strikes prohibiting talent from promoting them.
  • This film was dedicated to Burny Mattinson a Disney legend who died on February 27 2023 and has worked at Walt Disney Animation Studios for over 70 years.
  • Wish premiered at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, on November 8, 2023, and was theatrically released in the United States on November 22. The film received mixed reviews from critics.
  • In the United States and Canada, Wish was released alongside Napoleon and the wide expansion of Saltburn, and was initially projected to gross $45–50 million from 3,900 theaters over its five-day Thanksgiving opening weekend. The film made $8.3 million on its first day, including $2.3 million from Tuesday night previews. After Thanksgiving Day ($3.9 million) and Black Friday ($8 million), projections were lowered to $32–33 million. It went on to debut to $19.5 million (and a total of $31.7 million over the five days), finishing in third behind holdover The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes and Napoleon.
