Movie Review: Encanto

Get ready to discover a new Disney favorite when Encanto comes to theaters November 24, 2021.

Mirabel Madrigal comes from an exceptional family—quite literally. A magic candle has blessed several generations of Madrigals with special powers, from super-strength to the ability to heal with just food. Unfortunately for Mirabel, she’s the only one without any said powers, which in turns causes some issues especially with her Abuela. When Mirabel starts to believe the magic in the candle is fading, she becomes determined to do whatever she can to save the family and its magical legacy.

Disney’s Encanto is a fun filled fairytale with a sweet story that is sure to warm your heart. I actually didn’t even want the movie to end it was so much fun. The animation is bright, beautiful and colorful. The songs will have you wanting to get up and dance and the story line is one that teaches us we all have a little bit of magic inside of us.

I can’t wait to wait Encanto over and over again.

About Encanto

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal—every child except one, Mirabel (voice of Stephanie Beatriz). But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope. Releasing on Nov. 24, 2021, the film features all-new songs by Emmy®, GRAMMY® and Tony Award® winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”) and is directed by Byron Howard (“Zootopia,” “Tangled”) and Jared Bush (co-director “Zootopia”), co-directed by Charise Castro Smith (writer “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez”), and produced by Clark Spencer and Yvett Merino; Bush and Castro Smith are screenwriters on the film.
