We are celebrating the release of Disney’s Encanto with a giveaway of one copy of The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2022 and one copy of the musical soundtrack to Encanto. Read on and find out how you can be the lucky winner!
Like Coco, Encanto is a movie that the whole family can watch. It tells the story of the family Madrigal, as they leave their homeland of Colombia for safety.
Encanto is the story of a grandfather’s sacrifice to save his family and how the Madrigals rebuild their life with Abuela Alma (Grandma Alma) at the helm.
In their enchanted casita (house), the multigenerational family is blessed with enchantments. Each family member has a special talent, except for Mirabel. But might she save the day?
Mirabel is voiced by Stephanie Beatriz, an Argentinian-American actress. Abuela Alma is voiced by Colombian actress María Cecilia Botero. There are 44 songs—and the cumbia, Colombia’s national dance—that form the key elements of the film score. Encanto’s score was composed by Germaine Franco, who co-wrote most of the songs for Disney’s Coco; the songs in Encanto were written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Miranda, the creator of Hamilton, was also one of the composers for Moana. My favorite song of Encanto is “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”
The film pays tribute to Colombian culture by incorporating the country’s fashions in the embroideries in the dresses, the ponchos, and guayaberas worn by the characters. Encanto is for kids ages 6 and up, but I have no doubt that younger tykes will enjoy the movie and songs just as well.
Encanto respects Latin culture, and the beauty of the computer animations is something we haven’t seen in a long time. Disney’s 60th animated movie is an absolute winner. Go see it!
