Review: ‘Encanto’ Belongs on Your Must-Watch List this Holiday Season

Walt Disney Animation Studios brings one of its most joyful, vibrant, and intimate animated films to the big screen right in time for Thanksgiving. 

Encanto is a treasure for those who have ever had a hard time feeling special. With toe-tapping tunes and adorable animated characters (Antonio, I’m looking at you), add Encanto to your must-watch list this holiday season.

Encanto begins with Mirabel (voice of Stephanie Beatriz) singing a fast-paced song to introduce all the members of the Madrigals, a multigenerational family who live hidden in the colorful mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a charmed place called an Encanto. 

Every child of the Madrigal family receives a unique gift when they are young with special powers to help out their community, well every child except Mirabel.

Nobody knows why Mirabel did not receive a gift, but she often compares herself to her family members who do have them, especially her perfect sister Isabela, graced with beauty and the power to leave flowers wherever she goes.

Encanto is the 60th animated feature from Walt Disney Animation Studios, and the animation is spectacular as each expression looks incredibly human and real, thus evoking emotion from every character.
