Disney’s next animated feature looks absolutely packed with magic and wonder! Encanto follows the extraordinary Madrigal family, where each person has been blessed with a unique magical gift.
Everyone, that is, except for Mirabel.
But when her family’s home is threatened, she may be the only one who can save the day.
“This is my chance. I will save the magic,” Mirabel says in the trailer. “Wait. How do I save the magic?”
Check out the first trailer for Encanto below.
This trailer looks beautiful. You can already feel the magic in this film for sure! In addition to the colorful animation, you can count on some great music in Encanto. It features all-new songs from none other than Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, Moana).
Encanto comes from Zootopia co-directors Byron Howard and Jared Bush, as well as Charise Castro Smith. The feature, set in Colombia, drew inspiration from a research trip the team took early in the development process.
Disney also announced today that John Leguizamo (Ice Age) would join the voice cast. Leguizamo plays Mirabel’s uncle Bruno, who can see the future. However, his often doomsaying predictions haven’t always been well-received.
“Bruno is so compelling because he is that guy that never quite fits in,” said Leguizamo. “He’s an outsider, but he also understands the world better because he’s always wanted to belong to it.”
Leguizamo also expressed his excitement to join the film.
“I was so pumped to be asked to the party,” said Leguizamo. “Lin-Manuel [Miranda] wrote me a rap, and I flipped out! Plus, this is such a beautiful story set in Colombia. It’s a first in so many ways. The magic is enchanting, the comedy is so sharp, and the world created is irresistible.”
Leguizamo joins the rest of the core voice cast, including Stephanie Beatriz as Mirabel; María Cecilia Botero as Mirabel’s grandmother Alma, aka Abuela; Angie Cepeda and Wilmer Valderrama as Mirabel’s parents, Julieta and Agustín; and Diane Guererro and Jessica Darrow as Mirabel’s sisters, Isabela and Luisa. The Madrigal extended family voices include Carolina Gaitán and Mauro Castillo as Mirabel’s aunt and uncle, Pepa and Félix; and Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz and Ravi Cabot-Conyers as Mirabel’s cousins Dolores, Camilo and Antonio.
Encanto opens in theaters November 24.
