Walt Disney Animation’s 2023 Movie Announced At D23 Expo Has A Huge Connection To Disney’s History

Next year is a massive one for the history of the Walt Disney Company. After all, it was all the way back in 1923 that Walt and Roy O. Disney founded the studio, which makes 2023 the massive conglomerate’s 100th anniversary. Naturally, there is going to be a whole lot of celebrating going on in many different forms – but one special way that the occasion is being marked is on the big screen with the release of Walt Disney Animation Studio’s Wish, a new film that was just announced this afternoon at D23 Expo 2022.

While we’re still waiting for the arrival of the latest movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios (Strange World, which will be out in November), Chief Creative Officer Jennifer Lee took the stage at Hall D23 at the Anaheim Convention Center today to announce what is coming from the legendary brand in 2023. The movie will be called Wish because it is inspired by the long history of Disney characters wishing upon a star, and it will be directed by Chris Buck and Fawn Veerasunthorn. You can check out a first look at the movie via the Tweet from Disney Animation below:
