Wish: The BRWC Review

Wish: The BRWC Review

Wish: The BRWC Review. By  Richard Schertzer.

Disney can now congratulate themselves for creating some of the most amazing feature-length animated films for 100 years now and their work has really paid off for them. However, their latest film Wish does almost no favors for them in the slightest and seems like Disney just patting themselves on the back for their hard work.

The story sees Asha as an ardent and ambitious who attempts to be the apprentice of King Magnifico in a struggle to grant her grandfathers’ wish as he is turning 100. Magnifico is the big cheese and the citizens of his city willingly give him their wishes and he holds onto them in case he decides to grant said wishes. As a result of doing this, the citizens forget about their wish once Magnifico is in possession of them.



It certainly seems like an earnest plot and some ambitious themes, but that’s where the buck stops there as it is very self-evident that the Mouse House has completely run out of ideas as per their latest entry in animated films proves to be a rehash of older and better IP that tries to be a tribute to the legacy of Disney, but instead becomes a Frankenstein of a film that’s more disjointed than the monster itself.

Moreover, the animation style is something that proves to be either very dazzling or very frustrating. Either be a 2D-animated film or a 3D-animated film, but you can’t be both, otherwise, it looks like a hybrid of a film and not a cohesive canvas that’s evenly spread out.

What’s truly tragic is that this film had every opportunity to bring something new to the table at Disney, but it fell flat with maybe some mildly catchy songs that might provoke a hum or two. That’s not enough to downplay the childish humor, forced diversity and somewhat tone-deaf dialogue.

All in all, this movie could have been a lot more than what it was worth, but it was almost as if it didn’t even try and only exists as a placeholder for Disney to say that we did this on our anniversary.
