Chris Pine Is Playing King Magnifico In Disney's Wish
Chris Pine will play the king of a land where wishes come true in Disney's Wish, their new animated film coming this Thanksgiving.
Disney is on stage doing their CinemaCon presentation as we speak, and it was just announced that Chris Pine will be playing a character named King Magnifico in their Thanksgiving-releasing animated film, Disney's Wish. He joins Ariana DeBose and Alan Tudyk in the comedy musical. Pine's king rules the land of Rosas, a place where wishes come true. This film has been said by the studio to be a culmination of sorts to their 100 Year anniversary, and they are expecting big things from it. Chris Buck (Frozen franchise) and Fawn Veerasunthorn (Raya and the Last Dragon) are directing the film.
Disney Gets Another All-Star Cast Together
"Since taking its first step in 2011, CinemaCon has evolved and grown to become the largest and most important gathering for the worldwide motion picture theater industry. CinemaCon is truly a global event attracting attendees from more than 80 countries. On behalf of CinemaCon, the Official Convention of The National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO), we extend our sincerest appreciation and gratitude to the entire motion picture theater industry for helping to make the past eleven years so successful. And now, as we gear up for our eleventh show, the excitement continues when CinemaCon returns to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas from 24 April – 27 April 2023 for what is sure to be our biggest convention to date. From exclusive Hollywood product presentations debuting a slate of upcoming films, to must-see premiere feature screenings, to the biggest stars, producers and directors, CinemaCon will jumpstart the excitement and buzz that surrounds the holiday season (and beyond) at the box office."
Not a lot of this film has been seen outside of conventions and fan gatherings, but if I had to bet, we will get a first trailer and such around when Disney's The Little Mermaid releases next month. More from CinemaCon as we learn it.
