Encanto sang its way into the hearts of many when it hit Disney+ on Dec. 24, with songs from the animated film quickly climbing up the streaming charts — thanks, in part, to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s songwriting ability.
The story follows the Madrigals, a Colombian family, helmed by Abuela Alma, whose children and grandchildren receive magical gifts from a “miracle” that helps them serve the people in their small town, the Encanto. All of the Madrigals, except for Mirabel, receive their magical gifts on their fifth birthdays.
While Mirabel continues to cope with the fact that she’s the only one in her family without a gift, she learns that her family is losing their magic and sets out to find out why and put an end to it. Along the way, she mends her relationships with her sister, cousin and grandma, and manages to bring her estranged uncle Bruno back into the family fold.
Encanto‘s voice cast is made up of veteran actors and some who are newer to the industry. The Disney film stars Stephanie Beatriz, John Leguizamo, Diane Guerrero, Jessica Darrow, Maluma, Wilmer Valderrama, María Cecilia Botero, Olga Merediz, Ravi Cabot-Conyers, Rhenzy Feliz, Adassa, Angie Cepeda, Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo and Alan Tudyk, among others.
The movie received three Oscar nominations on Feb. 8, picking up nods for best original score, best original song for “Dos Oruguitas,” written by Miranda, and best animated feature. (The film’s catchy breakout hit, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” wasn’t submitted.)
“As much as the story hinges on Mirabel discovering what threatens the Madrigal magic and endangers their refuge, on a more fundamental level it’s about this big, complicated group reestablishing its harmony, learning to appreciate, even celebrate, one another’s qualities, whether they are extravagant or simple,” wrote The Hollywood Reporter‘s chief film critic David Rooney in his review.
