A beautiful magical musical film.

The vibrancy and magic of Disney’s Encanto will encapsulate and make you forget about the outside world.

A magical home that comes alive will also make you come alive. The experience of watching the film also feels more personal, especially with the family full of colourful characters bursting with personality that you’re bound to relate to one of them.

And like all Disney films, it is never just the outlook that impresses but also the important messaging they try to deliver. With Encanto, it's the feeling of belonging and living up to the standards bestowed upon you by your elders. You know, just a regular thing all families go through.

While the film may echo the vibes of Moana (2016) and Coco (2017), joining the ranks of the studio’s long list of animated musicals, Disney’s Encanto is anything but. With Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda penning the music, he breaks the mould of traditional Disney musicals by injecting more of his own personal/Broadway style to the numbers, so much so that they have a more In The Heights flavour than Moana (which he also worked on).

The songs are hella catchy, don’t get us wrong but as a fully grown adult having seen this, we find it hard to imagine the younger audience singing along like they would with Frozen’s “Let It Go” (with the exception of bits of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” probably). Musical fans would definitely appreciate it though.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Stephanie Beatriz is almost unrecognisable as the lead Mirabel, (especially if you’re most familiar with her as Detective Diaz) but she truly carries the film, proving not only her talent in voiceover work but also singing. We also love John Leguizamo’s bashful Bruno. Yes, we’re talking about Bruno.

It may not be as monumental or memorable as Coco but we’ll definitely be singing “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” for a while.. It’s an absolute banger okay, we can’t help it.
