Disney's 'Encanto': Release Date, Plot, Cast, Trailer and More

Disney's new animated film proves that one can achieve great things even without special powers. Check out all the details here.

Gather the whole family because there is a new Disney film to bond over.

'Encanto' is set in Colombia and will feature several original songs and Disney's signature heart-warming tale of bravery, love, and magic. The film follows an ordinary girl born to a family with magical powers.

Here is everything we know about 'Encanto,' including release dates, plot, cast, trailer, and more. 


When Will 'Encanto' Release?

'Encanto' is coming to theaters on November 24, 2021. 


What Is The Plot Of 'Encanto'?

The film follows Mirabel, a young girl born to a magical family called the Madrigals, living in an enchanted town in the mountains of Colombia. The members of the Madrigals family have a special gift. Each member possesses a magical power--except Mirabel. When the magic gets under threat, the powerless Mirabel realizes she might be the only person who could save it.

'Encanto' will feature original songs from music composer Lin-Manuel Miranda. Miranda is a multi-awarded actor, singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, and playwright. He previously worked on the 2016 Disney film 'Moana'.

In 2016, Miranda revealed that John Lasseter, the then-chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios, had presented an idea for an animated film to himself and Byron Howard. Miranda said that the work for the project has already begun, but it's still in a very early stage.

In June 2020, the official title of the project was finally unveiled. It was also confirmed to be the same project Miranda referred to in 2016.

17-time Grammy and Latin Grammy winner, singer-songwriter, and actor Carlos Vives also performed an original song called "Colombia, Mi Encanto" for the film. 

Vives, who hails from Santa Marta, Colombia, said in a statement:

"This song is a celebration of the magical diversity of Colombia. ... I can’t wait to see how the music will blend with the images and the characters inspired by the encanto of Colombians.


Who Is Cast In Encanto? 

The voice cast list is headed by Stephanie Beatriz, who is best known for her role as Detective Rosa Diaz in the NBC comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

She will be joined by María Cecilia Botero, Wilmer Valderrama, Adassa, Diane Guerrero, Mauro Castillo, Angie Cepeda, Jessica Darrow, Rhenzy Feliz, and Carolina Gaitan. Unfortunately, their exact roles are yet to get disclosed.
