Wish upon this star if you are a young lady or a mom with adolescents who would be enchanted as the music is splendid and the animation superb. The story has been told time and time again, but the twist here does make it fun entertainment.

The story centers on teen Asha who loves her village of people who live in it. Her devotion to her family and grandfather is impeachable. And he is about to celebrate his centennial birthday. Each year King Magnifico grants one wish from all those who have requested one in his Kingdom. Asha’s grandfather has never wished and wanted him to be chosen. While pondering over it, a star falls from the sky. Could this be the one thing that will make it all happen? But there is a sinister plot involved and it concerns all the wishes that have been captured and held in the castle.

The music is splendid as usual and Disney provides a good measure of it in Wish. The seven original songs from “Knowing What I Know Now” to the title song, make the animated film enchanting and fun to watch. Even at the end, you will be treated to a performance of “When You Wish Upon a Star”. The song is the basic theme of Disneyworld and is originally from the movie Pinocchio. It will bring back memories for everyone who watches the film.
