EXCLUSIVE: Angelique Cabral (Big Sky, Life in Pieces) is set to star in the Disney Animation feature Wish, Deadline has learned. She will voice Queen Amaya opposite Chris Pines who stars as King Magnifico, ruler of the magical kingdom of Rosas, where wishes really do come true.
Wish follows Asha (Oscar winner, Ariana DeBose), a sharp-witted idealist who makes a wish so powerful that it is answered by a cosmic force — a little ball of boundless energy called Star. Together, Asha and Star set out to prove that when the will of one courageous human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things can happen. Alan Tudyk also stars as the talking goat, Valentino Hall.
The film opens on November 22.
Oscar-winning director Chris Buck (Frozen franchise) and Fawn Veerasunthorn (Raya and the Last Dragon) are directors, with Peter Del Vecho (Frozen franchise) producing and Juan Pablo Reyes (Encanto) co-producing. Allison Moore (Night Sky, Manhunt) is also a co-writer.
Original songs are by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Julia Michaels and Grammy-winning producer-songwriter-musician Benjamin Rice, plus score by Dave Metzger.
Cabral most recently recurred on Season 3 of ABC’s Big Sky in the role of Carla. Other notable TV credits include Fox’s Enlisted, CBS’ Life in Pieces and Prime Video’s Undone. Film Credits include 2011’s The Perfect Family alongside Kathleen Turner and Emily Deschanel; Friends with Benefits that same year opposite Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake; 2017’s Band Aid and All About Nina a year later. In 2021, she starred in How It Ends written, directed, and produced by Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones.
