‘True: Wonderful Wishes’ is the second part of the second season in the ‘True and the Rainbow Kingdom’ series. The Canadian animation, fantasy and adventure show is distributed by Netflix and produced for it by Guru Studios. It airs on CBC in Canada and Netflix in the USA and abroad. The series first premiered on June 15, 2018, on Netflix, and on July 7, 2018, on CBC.
‘True and the Rainbow Kingdom’ follows “8-year-old True and her best friend Bartleby the cat, as they help the whimsical citizens of the Rainbow Kingdom, a wondrous, colorful universe filled with delightful and fantastical citizens. True is the only one with the ability to activate the magical powers of The Wishes of the wishing tree, solve problems in the Rainbow Kingdom, and empower viewers with her imagination, mindfulness, and empathy.”
Both ‘True: Wonderful Wishes’ and ‘True: Magical Friends’ are spin-offs of the original series. ‘Wonderful Wishes’ tells the tale that “Do-gooding True and Bartleby will go anywhere to make wishes come true — from the bottom of the Living Sea to the tip of Mount Tippy Tippy Top.” Naturally, the series was a hit among the target audience who have already been taken in by the franchise. If you enjoy this, you can also check out ‘Motown Magic‘ and ‘Luna Petunia‘.
True: Wonderful Wishes Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of ‘True: Wonderful Wishes’ mainly includes voice actors whose performances breathe life into the characters we see on screen. Some of the main cast members who deserve mention are, Michela Luci who voices True, the protagonist of the tale and Jamie Watson, who voices fellow do-gooder Bartleby. Anna Claire Bartlam also deserves mention for voicing the part of Grizelda. As True and Bartleby embark on their many exotic adventures, they are sure to come across various other characters who are voiced by recurring and guest actors.
We realize that True is a strong heroine with a good and kind heart, a clever mind, and from her many adventures, abundant energy. She is the kind of person to accept challenges head on wearing a beaming smile on her face, and what makes her truly (pun intended) special is the fact that she is only one who can activate the magical powers of the wishes in the Rainbow Kingdom. Every hero needs a sidekick, and Bartleby the cat is exactly that. Like most sidekicks, Bartleby is also funny and seems to possess bravado, not to mention the gift of gab. True however knows that deep down he is somewhat of a scaredy cat. However, the cat’s opinions and commentary often helps True unlock her creative problem-solving skills. Grizelda is a princess and is naturally a bit self-absorbed and self-centered. Although she realizes deep down that True is a good friend and she needs someone like her, she often cuts people off due to her actions. However, the show teaches us that reaching out to people with love should be unconditional, and the more difficult people often need just a little more of love, and thus True never stops trying reaching out to the Princess.
In the upcoming season, we can expect Luci, Bartlam, and Watson to reprise their roles.
True: Wonderful Wishes Plot: What is it about?
The world of ‘True and the Rainbow Kingdom’ has True as the fearless guardian to use wishes from the Wishing Tree. This eight-year-old normally helps to protect the people of the Rainbow Kingdom, which is a colorful and happy place. The plot of ‘Wonderful Wishes’ takes us back into True’s world once again, but it is removed from the Rainbow Kingdom this time. However, it still remains a wonderful world filled with adventures, friendships, and wishes that make dreams come true.
The children’s special is one of the best depictions of friendship, love, and all the good values for the young ones to follow in life. The series continues to drive focus towards values of compassion and kindness. While this makes it great for kids, parents will also appreciate the way the show teaches values like conscientiousness and patience. It also packs in some mature lessons in a way that kids can process. We see that not all of True’s efforts help solve the problems immediately. This is a good reality check regarding the nature of problems and the fact that it is okay to fail on the path to success.
With friendly characters and important life lessons, True will continue enlightening the lives of kids all around the world in the upcoming season and kids will keep coming back for the strong visuals and vibrant characters, but will also walk away with reliable and positive messages about how to lead a better life.
True: Wonderful Wishes Season 2 Release: When does it premiere?
‘True: Wonderful Wishes’ Season 1 premiered on June 15, 2018, on Netflix. Since it was treated as a standalone series, it is likely that the show will continue as such, instead of being merged back with the main show. Moreover, the streaming service is looking to expand its library with shows suitable for kids and this is a perfect fit. All this makes us very hopeful that ‘True: Wonderful Wishes’ Season 2 might release sometime later in 2020. We will keep you updated about the official release date.
