Inspired by Walt Disney’s magical, musical legacy, the movie features an original story and characters, with seven all-new songs penned by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Julia Michaels and Grammy-winning producer-songwriter-musician Benjamin Rice. Five songs have been released ahead of the film, and have become viral sensations—generating over 60 million creations on TikTok, resulting in 5.5 billion views.

At the heart of Wish—like so many of the Disney features that came before it—is the music. “So many of our beloved films are musicals,” Producer Peter Del Vecho said. “When you think of Disney, you think of a range of emotions. You want to feel like you’ve been on a roller coaster, and part of that emotion comes from music.”

When considering the songs and the songwriter for Wish, the filmmakers wanted to find someone who could deliver both a timeless and contemporary sound. Said Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Chief Creative Officer Jennifer Lee, “Julia Michaels is an extraordinary talent, and Julia, along with her writing partner Benjamin Rice, have created original songs that inspired all of us working on the film. Her collaborative process was so special, really sitting down with us and talking about the motivations of our characters.”

Julia Michaels commented, “Disney has been very integrated in my life throughout my whole songwriting journey. The songs in Wish are fun, emotional, and heartfelt. Ben and I had to cover a lot of ground lyrically, so a lot of the songs are rhythmically whimsical and heartfelt. The collaborative process with the filmmakers was special.”
