With Raya and the Last Dragon having been a sizeable hit on Disney+, the mouse house is ready to introduce audiences everywhere to their 60th animated motion picture, Encanto! Last year, Disney released a small sneak peek of the movie during their Investor’s Day presentation. Details have been scarce but here’s what we know:
Encanto follows the story of a family called the Madrigals, who live in an enchanting town near the mountains of Colombia. Every child but one in their magical house has been granted a unique ability such as strength or healing powers. Mirabel, the only ordinary child, discovers the magic is under threat and she may be the only one able to save it.
This animated musical fantasy comedy film is directed by Byron Howard and Jared Bush (Zootopia), co-directed by Charise Castro Smith, produced by Clark Spencer. The ever-so-talented Lin-Manuel Miranda has written a slew full of new music and songs for the movie! If it’s anything like the soundtracks from Moana, Hamilton, or In the Heights then it’s sure to be a bop!
Brooklyn 99 star Stephaine Beatriz voices the film’s main character, Mirabel Madrigal. Other actors who will be lending their vocal talents to the magical family are María Cecilia Botero, Wilmer Valderrama, Adassa, Doom Patrol star Diane Guerrero, Mauro Castillo, Angie Cepeda, Jessica Darrow, Marvel’s Runaways star Rhenzy Feliz, and Carolina Gaitan. This morning, Disney released the movie’s first teaser trailer and posters which you can see both right down below!
