In 2021, Disney released their 60th animated feature film named “Encanto”. This is a breath of fresh air in the animated musical film genre because of its endearing characters and catchy songs, which were co-written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
“Encanto” tells the story of a Colombian family who has extraordinary abilities. Though Mirabel isn’t endowed with a particular talent like her relatives, it doesn’t make her any less special. Ultimately, when her loved ones lose their skills, it’s up to her to rescue people.
One of Encanto’s highlights is Colombia’s magnificent splendor. In order to convey the country’s enchantment better, Directors Byron Howard and Jared Bush invited a Latin-American cast to play the major characters.
