A trailer has dropped for Netflix’s upcoming animated feature film Wish Dragon. A modern retelling of Aladdin set in Shanghai, China, the official trailer packs in plenty of comedic moments, a disdainful pink dragon eager to finish his immortal task, and an ordinary boy looking for a certain girl but with a twist. Check out the trailer below!
In Wish Dragon, Din, a working-class college student with big dreams but small means (voiced by Jimmy Wong), and Long, a cynical but all-powerful dragon capable of granting wishes (John Cho), set off on a hilarious adventure through modern day Shanghai in pursuit of Din’s long-lost childhood friend, Lina (Natasha Liu Bordizzo). Their journey forces them to answer some of life’s biggest questions – because when you can wish for anything, you have to decide what really matters.Animation Magazine
