‘Wish Dragon’ Plot
Sony Pictures Animation‘s Wish Dragon is the story of Din, a 19-yr old working-class college student living in a working-class neighborhood of modern-day Shanghai, who has big dreams but small means.
His life changes overnight when he finds an old teapot containing a Wish Dragon named Long, a magical dragon able to grant wishes, and he is given the chance to reconnect with his childhood best friend, Li-Na.
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.
Wish Dragon, the magical adventure, very much like rival Disney’s Aladdin, it replaces only the wish-granting blue genie from an ancient lamp with a pink dragon from a mystical teapot and progresses in a very Aladdin-esque fashion.
However, this is the modern-day spin that is refreshing and enticing enough. That and the switch to friendship from love that seems like a welcome change.
