Video D23 Expo 2022 – Panel “A celebration of Disney Animation’s Encanto”


A Encanto panel took place on Saturday at Expo D23which brought the filmmakers and cast together for a lively narration, a surprise guest, a musical performance, and the announcement of an upcoming live-action staging of the film’s story and music.

Thousands of cheering fans filled the Anaheim Convention Center’s front stage for a spirited event with talk from the creative team and cast, ending with a heartbreaking performance of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.” It was actually the second performance of the hit song at the Expo, after a closing of Friday’s Disney Legends ceremony.

Lin-Manuel Miranda joined the panel remotely via impressive AT&T video technology.
