Teaser Trailer: Disney Animation’s “Encanto”

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

Walt Disney Animation Studios has released the trailer and poster for their 60th animated feature – the musical fantasy “Encanto”.

The story follows an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a vibrant and magical town called Encanto.

Said magic has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal – every child except one, Mirabel (voiced by Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Stephanie Beatriz).

But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.

“Hamilton” creator Lin Manuel-Miranda serves as composer, back in the same position he was for Disney’s 2016 feature “Moana”. That film’s writer Jared Bush co-writes and co-directs this film with co-writer Castro Smith and co-director Byron Howard (“Zootopia”).

“Encanto” is set for a theatrical release on November 24th.
