Easter egg hidden in Disney's 100th anniversary commemorative work 'Wish', an homage to 'Cinderella' → 'Mickey Mouse'
A special Easter egg included in Disney's 100th anniversary commemorative film 'Wish' (directed by Chris Buck and von Virasson) has been revealed.

'Wish' is about Asha, a confident girl living in the magical kingdom of Rosas, who fights against King Magnifico, who has absolute power, along with a star with infinite energy, and how one person's sincere wish and courage can create amazing things. A musical animation commemorating Disney's 100th anniversary.

▶ ‘Cinderella’ and Asha costumes
There is a hidden link to 'Cinderella' in Asha's costume in the work. Animator Yoon Nara, who participated in the work of the main characters in 'Wish', including Asha, King Magnifico, and Star, said that the cape worn by Asha was inspired by the cape worn by the fairy grandmother in 'Cinderella'.

▶ ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ and Asha’s 7 friends
Asha's strong supporters and seven eternal friends were created as an homage to the dwarves in Disney's first feature-length animation, 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.' Allison Moore, who wrote the screenplay for 'Wish', said, "Each of Asha's friend characters was inspired by the seven dwarves. They have the same color clothes and personality traits as the dwarf characters, and their names start with the same alphabet." .

▶ Scenes from ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘The Jungle Book’ and animal songs
The sight of animals and plants in the forest of Rosas Kingdom singing together under the special power of the star is also a scene that pays homage to the Disney classic. In the movies 'The Little Mermaid' and 'The Jungle Book', the main characters sing with fish and animal friends. Director Chris Buck explained, "There is a long tradition of animals singing in Disney animation. This can be clearly seen in the scene where 'I'M A STAR' is played."

▶ Maleficent and King Magnifico in ‘Sleeping Beauty’
The villain King Magnifico becomes powerful after gaining the power of darkness. Afterwards, the eyes change to green and use evil magic. The green in this scene adds interest as it is the color symbolizing Maleficent, the villain in 'Sleeping Beauty' and Disney's legendary villain.

▶ ‘Mickey Mouse’ and star characters
The star character is said to be inspired by Disney's symbol, Mickey Mouse. Bill Schwab, the character art director, revealed that the star's appearance was borrowed from the face of Mickey Mouse. “The pose was expressed in the same way.”

You can also see an Easter egg that will touch the hearts of fans in the ending credits. In the ending credits, both old and new Disney characters appear together to commemorate Disney's 100th anniversary.
