Disney+ Adaptating ‘A Crown Of Wishes’ Series Based on YA Novel Starring Avantika

Disney Branded television is developing a new series titled “A Crown of Wishes” based on the young adult novel of the second book in Roshani Chokshi’s bestselling Star-Touched Queen duology.

Avantika (Spin, Senior Year) will star and executive produce the project for Disney+.

According to Deadline, “A Crown of Wishes” is a fantasy series rooted in Hindu mythology. The novel centers on Princess Gauri (Avantika), who is imprisoned after a failed siege against her malevolent brother, the King of Bharata. When Gauri is exiled from her kingdom, she reluctantly teams up with Vikram, an untrustworthy prince from a rival neighboring land, to enter the Tournament of Wishes. One wish will be granted to the winner, and though Princess Gauri and Prince Vikram have differing agendas, they will be forced into an uneasy alliance—and unexpected romance—while saving both their kingdoms.

Zanne Devine (Easy A) will produce alongside Avantika Vandanapu through his Montana North Media banner. Raj Raghavan of ColorCreative will be a co-executive producer. Jessica Sonnefeld Jolles of Montana North co-produces.

Avantika Vandanapu starred in the Disney Channel Original Movie Spin and appeared in the Disney+ series Diary of a Future President.
