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.
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.
With its Lin Manuel Miranda songs topping the music charts everyone is dancing to Bruno the time is now to see this burst of animated family enchantment. Miranda gives this Oscar favourite a heart that sings and a spirit that soars.
You will be humming ‘Welcome to the Family Madrigal’ — expositional but infectious — all the way home. The characters are infectious, too, and well-drawn, enriching Encanto’s world with gifts that extend far beyond their bestowed powers.
A Disney film that delights without smashing expectations. Its easy to forget that the target audience for this genre are simply interested in fun and wonder, something that this movie delivers in spades.
Visually stunning animated film with wonderful songs and score, a deep, resonating emotional core and just a very positive, charming vibe to it.
