Encanto is an upcoming Disney musical comedy set in a magical town in the Colombian mountains, about a young girl called Mirabel Madrigal (Stephanie Beatriz) frustrated with being the only one in her family without magical abilities – the Madrigals each display a range of magical abilities, from super-strength, communicating with animals, shapeshifting and more. That is until Encanto’s magic becomes in danger of disappearing, and Mirabel is forced to go on a journey to save her family, their house, and their magic.

In Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto,” Antonio may be shy, but his huge heart is his biggest asset—rivaled only by his newly received magical ability to communicate with animals.

Directed by Byron Howard, Jared Bush (the pair previously collaborated on Zootopia/Zootropolis) and Charise Castro Smith, with songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda (we can’t shake the man!). Encanto also marks a big milestone for Walt Disney Animation, being its 60th film following the release of Raya and the Last Dragon earlier this year; the studio has two other upcoming releases scheduled, with Searcher Clade slated for a late 2022 release and an untitled film directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada planned for late 2023.

The latest trailer looks like a delightfully upbeat, colourful and energetic fantasy tale. See for yourself below.

Encanto is scheduled to release in cinemas November 24th, 2021. It will then migrate to Disney+ on Christmas Eve.
