Did you see my post with the top Encanto quotes and all about generational trauma? It’s eye-opening!
And because I love this film so much, I’m sharing printable activity sheets, including Encanto coloring pages for the whole family and A DVD GIVEAWAY, too!
This “Encanto” featurette takes you behind the scenes of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 60th feature film with directors Jared Bush and Byron Howard, co-director Charise Castro Smith, producer Yvett Merino, songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda, and stars Stephanie Beatriz and John Leguizamo, who lend their voices to Mirabel and Bruno in the film.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto.
The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal—every child except one, Mirabel (voice of Stephanie Beatriz).
But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.
The film is directed by Jared Bush (co-director “Zootopia”) and Byron Howard (“Zootopia,” “Tangled”), co-directed by Charise Castro Smith (writer “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez”), and produced by Yvett Merino and Clark Spencer; the screenplay is by Castro Smith and Bush.
“Encanto” features original songs by Emmy®, GRAMMY® and Tony Award® winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”); Germaine Franco (“Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” “Little,” “Tag”) composed the original score.
