LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Animated fantasies are a hallmark of the Walt Disney Company and as Disney celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2023, its next animated film, Wish, celebrates that legacy.
Oscar winner Ariana DeBose is the voice of Asha, a young woman who applies to be King Magnifico’s apprentice, voiced by Chris Pine.
“I want young people to see this character and say, ‘I see myself in this girl in a lot of different ways,’ to know that they have different options and that if they do, their dreams will come true,” Debose said told On The Red Carpet at the D23 Expo last year.
“Wish” opens on Thanksgiving weekend and won’t be in theaters until November 22nd.
Also hitting theaters in November is The Marvels, an epic space odyssey that expands the MCU like never before and brings together a brand new team of superheroes: Captain Marvel, played by Brie Larson, Monica Rambeau, played by Teyonah Parris, and Ms. Marvel, played by Iman Vellani.
“It’s going to be really fun and I think it’s going to be so powerful to see all these women on screen together,” Vellani told On The Red Carpet earlier this year. “We have so many cool women and people of color working on this film and they really made the story as personal as possible.”
“The Marvels” doesn’t hit theaters until November 10th.
On television, country music’s biggest night takes place this November on ABC. Lainey Wilson is headlining this year’s CMA Awards, leading the way with nine nominations. Wilson won her first two CMA Awards last year for new artist and female vocalist of the year.
“It was a whirlwind, but in the best way,” Wilson told On The Red Carpet. “I mean, these are the moments that I’ve been praying for and hoping for for years. I’ve been in Nashville for 12 years now. I wrote my first song when I was 12 years old. I feel like I’m exactly where I am.” “It should be, and the cool thing is we’re just getting started.”
Wilson is nominated for entertainer of the year along with Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood and Morgan Wallen.
For the second year in a row, Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning will host the CMA Awards, airing live on ABC on November 8th.
On The Red Carpet will host live red carpet interviews starting at 2:00 PM PT as the stars arrive on OnTheRedCarpet.com.
Other highlights this November include the new films “Quiz Lady” starring Awkwafina and Sandra Oh on Hulu and “Next Goal Wins” from director Taika Waititi, which can only be seen in theaters, as well as new seasons of “Fargo” with Jon Hamm and Juno Temple on Hulu and The Santa Clauses with Tim Allen on Disney+.
