ENCANTO, is the story of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a magical house, in a wonderfully charming and bustling town called Encanto. In the movie, the magic of Encanto blessed every child in the family with a unique gift ranging from super strength to the power to heal – every child except one, Mirabel (voiced by Stephanie Beatriz.
Mirabel is an ordinary 15-year-old girl who struggles to find her place in her family. But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, may well be the last hope of her exceptional family. The voice cast also includes María Cecilia Botero, Wilmer Valderrama, Adassa, Diane Guerrero, Mauro Castillo, Angie Cepeda, Jessica Darrow, Rhenzy Feliz and Carolina Gaitan.
The filmmakers were deeply inspired by their research trip to Colombia early in the development of “Encanto”, and present brand new songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton”, “Moana”). It is directed by Byron Howard (“Zootopia”, “Tangled”) and Jared Bush (co-director “Zootopia”), co-directed by Charise Castro Smith (screenwriter “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez”) and produced by Clark Spencer and Yvett Merino. Bush and Castro Smith are the film’s writers.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” opens in Indian theaters on November 26.
