That princess is Asha, the heroine of Disney’s upcoming animated feature Wish. Asha is Disney’s first Afro-Latina princess. Disney has recently released Wish‘s first trailer at CinemaCon. The Academy Award-winning queer actress Ariana DeBose voices the 17-year-old lead character Asha, an adventurous idealist who makes a wish so powerful that it is answered by a cosmic force—a little ball of boundless energy called Star. Chris Pine has voiced the powerful King Magnifico and Alan Tudyk plays Asha’s pet goat, Valentino. Set in Rosas, a fantastical land located off the Iberian Peninsula, the children’s film follows Asha and Star on their journey to confront King Magnifico in hopes of saving her community.
