Angelique Cabral Tapped To Be Queen Amaya In Disney Animations Wish

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 Pine 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.
