Dave Metzger Scoring Disney’s Animated Film ‘Wish’

Today, Disney announced today that Dave Metzger will score Disney’s upcoming feature animated film “Wish.”  Metzger has previously worked on Brother Bear 2Tarzan & Jane, and Tarzan 2: The Legend Begins. It was also announced that Grammy Award-winning producer/songwriter/musician Benjamin Rice has joined Julia Michaels to write the original songs for the movie.

The story is set in Rosas, the kingdom of wishes where wishes can literally come true.  The film stars Ariana DeBose as 17-year-old Asha—an optimist with a sharp wit who cares endlessly about her community. In a moment of desperation, Asha makes an impassioned plea to the stars, which is answered by a cosmic force, a little ball of boundless energy called Star. Together, they face the most formidable of foes to save her community and prove that when the will of one courageous human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things can happen.

Alan Tudyk will also play a goat named Valentino in the movie and Chris Pine will play King Magnifico.

Singer/songwriter Julia Michaels will compose all of the original songs for the upcoming animated musical along with Grammy winning producer-songwriter-musician Benjamin Rice, plus score by Dave Metzger.

The film is directed by Chris Buck & Fawn Veerasunthorn and produced by Peter Del Vecho & Juan Pablo Reyes.

“Wish” is set to hit theaters on November 22, 2023.
