Encanto

MAGICAL HOUSE. MAGICAL FAMILY.

15-year-old Mirabel is the only member of her family (who all live in a sentient house) not to have magical powers. Colombian culture was the primary inspiration for the look and style of this enjoyable film that shines a light on refugees as part of the Madrigal’s background… but most of it is a traditional Disney story about family, magic and finding your inner self, all set to the tune of an uneven bunch of Lin-Manuel Miranda songs. A lot in the film is familiar, but still disarming entertainment on the whole, creatively and colorfully rendered, and with a likable lead character. 

2021-U.S. Animated. 102 min. Color. Directed by¬†Jared Bush, Byron Howard. Songs: Lin-Manuel Miranda (‚ÄĚDos Oruguitas‚ÄĚ, ‚ÄĚWe Don‚Äôt Talk About Bruno‚ÄĚ). Voices of Stephanie Beatriz (Mirabel Madrigal), Mar√≠a Cecilia Botero (Alma Madrigal), John Leguizamo (Bruno Madrigal), Mauro Castillo, Jessica Darrow, Angie Cepeda.

Trivia: Miranda also contributed to the story.

Oscar: Best Animated Feature. Golden Globe: Best Animated Motion Picture. BAFTA: Best Animated Film.
