Encanto is as enchanting as its title


Encanto may not beat Disney’s Frozen in gross earnings, Encanto does rival Frozen in storytelling and music writing. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s unique music-writing style empowers the story of Mirabel’s quest to find the source of the Madrigal family’s troubles. Vibrant music and colorful animation contribute to the watcher’s enjoyment.

Disney’s Encanto lives up to its enchanting title as a musical comedy. Encanto follows the story of Mirabel Madrigal and her family and the mystery surrounding their family’s power. The film was directed by Byron Howard and Jared Bush, the same people behind Zootopia, Bolt, and Moana. The talented Lin-Manuel Miranda also had a significant influence over the story of Encanto and its vibrant music.

The Madrigal’s are a magical family who lives hidden in the mountains of Colombia in an enchanted valley. Magic has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift, except Mirabel. However, she becomes the Madrigal’s last hope when she discovers that the magic is now in danger.

Encanto was at the top of the Box Office charts for animated films in 2021, grossing over $90 million in the U.S. and over $216 million globally. To compare, Frozen earned more than $400 million in the same time frame. However, Encanto is severely limited to revenue from watching due to only streaming on Disney+.

Encanto holds a “Rotten Tomato” score of 90% among critics, making it certified fresh. It also holds a 93% audience score, making it credibly enjoyable to the average watcher, with or without children. Check out Encanto today on Disney+!
