Disney is hosting a casting call on August 8 for performers to portray Asha from the upcoming Walt Disney Studios animated musical 'Wish.'

Disney Live Entertainment is seeking Disney Character Look-alikes for the role of ASHA as depicted in the upcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios film Wish. Performers will have the opportunity to bring this role to life, in addition to performing as world famous Disney Characters at our Parks & Resorts near Orlando, Florida.

No word yet on precisely what Disney's plans are for the character in the parks, but Disney's Hollywood Studios or Magic Kingdom would appear as likely destinations for Asha.

Wish opens in theaters on November 22 2023.

Wish isn't set in Morocco, but a mixture of Mediterranian locations. Maybe we'll see street petformers, food stands, etc. Frozen is set in Norway, albeit in a fictional Norwegian petty kingdom because it is a fairy tale. Geography, clothing, etc. are still the same. I still remember a thread where a Scandinavian lady mentioned that the ride was so Norwegian that it helped with homesickness.

A respectable lady like her?!?

Why can’t Mary collect butterflies?

Or, if the film is big enough, there's no reason it can't be in two parks! I'm sure they'd rather use their own IP than pay CBS for the Twilight Zone...

If they did this then they would have to repaint ToT to match the skyline and lord forbid the fans would go ape spit because of it...

Those poignant/vaguely menacing pandemic Pooh meet-and-greets will be forever in our hearts!

Same goes with that "other" film..

No, Pooh was already in the park, he just moved from Imagination lawn to UK.

I'm sure they won't replace Morocco with a Wish pavilion.

Disney has lost money on almost every release in the last 2 years so I bet they are REALLY hoping it does well. The premise to me seems kind of dumb where the "villain" understands you can't grant everyone's wishes because it would destroy society, but this girl fights him so that everyone's wishes can be granted. Seems like the wrong message to send to kids that everyone should get what they want all the time without working for it... but we will see.

One more reason to go to EPCOT I guess.
