Walt Disney Animation Studios has released new Encanto posters that give a detailed look at the characters in the anticipated November 24, 2021 release. You can view all the Encanto posters by scrolling down!
Encanto is 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.
“Mirabel is a really funny, loving character who also deeply yearns for something more,” says Beatriz previously. “She’s also not afraid to stand up for what she knows is right – something I love and relate to very much.
“I’m Colombian on my father’s side, and playing this role fills me with immense pride,” she added. “As a Disney kid, I’d burn through my VHS tapes and adored every single magical story that the world of Disney introduced me to. I learned in those that stories that anything is possible, especially if you believe in magic and the goodness rooted deep inside us all.”
The voice cast also includes María Cecilia Botero, Wilmer Valderrama, Adassa, Diane Guerrero, Mauro Castillo, Angie Cepeda, Jessica Darrow, Rhenzy Feliz and Carolina Gaitan.
Global Latin superstar Maluma lends his voice to town heartthrob, Mariano, the soon-to-be fiancé of Mirabel’s perfect and poised sister Isabela.
In the movie, “Colombia, Mi Encanto” is performed by 17-time GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY winner, singer, songwriter and actor Carlos Vives, who’s a native of Santa Marta, Colombia.
Sebastián Yatra also performs the original song “Dos Oruguitas” in Spanish in the film, as well as “Two Oruguitas,” the English-language version of the song, in the end credits.
Mirabel is the only child in her extraordinary family who wasn’t blessed with a magical gift. She’s determined to prove that she belongs – denying to everyone, including herself, that she feels all alone, even in her own house.
Isabela is pretty much perfect, with an abundance of grace and poise – not to mention a magical ability to make plants grow and flowers bloom.
Luisa, hardworking and determined, was given the gift of super strength. She is the go- to person for all of the heavy lifting.
Antonio is shy with a huge heart. He has a special connection to Mirabel, relying on her for comfort and courage – especially on an important day when his cousin finds him nervously hiding under his bed.
Dolores is Mirabel’s cousin who’s usually the first to know the town’s biggest secrets, most compelling drama and juiciest revelations. She can’t help it: she was blessed with extraordinary hearing. Whisper if you will, but Dolores can still hear it.
Camilo was born to entertain. Throw in his magical gift that allows him to switch up his appearance to be whomever he wants to be in the moment, and he’s secured his place in the spotlight.
Abuela Alma is the matriarch of the Madrigal family. Her steadfast determination and unwavering hope led her to the magical Encanto, where she raised triplets Julieta, Pepa and Bruno. To her surprise and delight, each of her children was blessed with a magical gift upon their fifth birthday, and the tradition continued with each of their children – except for Mirabel. Abuela values the gifts given to each of her family members, ensuring that they are used to benefit and protect their community, and to honor the sacrifice of Abuelo Pedro.
JULIETA & AGUSTIN
Julieta & Agustin are parents to three daughters, Isabela, Luisa and Mirabel. Julieta, one of Alma’s triplets, was blessed with the power to heal. Radiating warmth and kindness, Julieta wields no magic wand, however. Her magic is found in the food she lovingly prepares for all who need it.
PEPA & FELIX
Pepa & Felix are Mirabel’s quirky aunt and fun-loving uncle, and are parents to Dolores, Camilo and Antonio. Pepa, one of Abuela Alma’s triplets, was gifted with the power to control the weather with her emotions. The forecast is often unpredictable, however, as Pepa’s emotions are far-reaching and ever-changing.
Bruno, the third of Alma’s triplets, has been estranged from the Madrigal family for as long as Mirabel can remember.
