Disney's Encanto (2021, D: Howard/Bush/Castro Smith) V: Stephanie Beatriz, music by Lin-Manuel Miranda



You’re invited into the exceptional, fantastical and magical Casa Madrigal. Watch the new trailer for Disney’s Encanto now! See the movie this November.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto,” is 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 all-new original film features the voice of Stephanie Beatriz as Mirabel, an ordinary 15-year-old who’s struggling to find her place in her family. “Mirabel is a really funny, loving character who also deeply yearns for something more,” says Beatriz. “She’s also not afraid to stand up for what she knows is right—something I love and relate to very much.

I just cannot picture Stephanie Beatriz’s voice as a 15 year old.

The title reminds me of Encanto, a suburb of San Diego. It doesn't have the best reputation.

You know her voice on B99 isn't her normal talking voice, yeah?

I wonder if this will finally be a Disney animated movie where a cynical protagonist learns to set aside their ego and finds new courage when their loved ones are endangered and eventually learns about the importance of traditions and family. I have been waiting to see a family film like that.

Doesn't seem like she has an ego problem - she just wants to help but doesn't think she can without a "power". So, it's the story of finding her inner strength that was there all along that will save her family.

Glad to see it turned out so well. I'm unlikely to see it in a theater, but will watch it at home soon enough.

Saw this earlier today. A few too minutes long, but very good.

Had many familiar elements, but beautifully rooted in the type of world that Gabriel
Garcia Marquez created in books like 100 years of solitude.

some moments reminded me of the children's books Savvy and the Matchbook Castle…who would both make great, live action children's movies. No more cartoons please.

The songs were pretty good and…less…Lin Miranda…which I appreciated. The strong sisters song was the standout.

Having kids, it’s constant animation…but this one had some substance that caught my
feels by the end.

I just got back from seeing it. I thought it was pretty good, but not great. This isn't going to be one of the all-time Disney classics, but it's still a very enjoyable movie.

It's beautifully animated and the colors are so vibrant. This movie is really about the long mythology of this Colombian family and some misunderstandings that happen along the way. The one criticism I had was there wasn't a "villain" or antagonist.

Mirabel, voiced by Stephanie Beatriz from Brooklyn 99, is a very charming and likable lead character. The whole family dynamics was one of the strong points. The songs by Miranda were okay, but none of them really stood out.

I'd give this an 8 out of 10 and maybe a B. If you have kids, I think this will make a good family viewing experience. I wouldn't call this "must see" theatrical. If you don't have any sense of urgency to see animated movies like this or kids begging you take them, I guess you can wait to see it in a month on Disney +

Yay, a Christmas Eve treat.

ETA: Just finished up on Disney+, great movie. Super colorful. Aldo, if you do not include the credits, the film is a zippy 90m or thereabouts.
