In a magical area of Columbia surrounded by mountains; exists a magical town watched over by the Madrigal family. The family lives in a magical home that is the center point for the community and is loved by the community.
In the new Disney film “Encanto”; audiences are told the story of how the family patriarch founded the community with a magical candle and how upon reaching a certain age; all members of her family receive a “gift” from the magical house which gives them an ability to help the community. From being able to heal with cooking to talking to the animals and super strength; the family Madrigal is the beloved pillar of the community.
To every rule there is an exception and young Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz); is the only member of her family not to receive a gift of powers. As such she is seen as a pariah from the family and believes she is more tolerated than loved especially compared to her siblings who are endowed with amazing abilities.
Things change when a new member of the family goes through the gifting ceremony; the first one since Mirabel was denied, and receives an amazing gift and basks in the love of the town and family. Mirabel has a vision of the house cracking and falling into ruin. She tries to warn her family but they see the house in its usual pristine condition and blame Mirabel for being jealous for not having a gift and wanting to take attention away from those who do.
Mirabel believes in what she saw and learns that members of her family may know more than they admit and that they hold the key to saving the day. This leads to a quest to find the absent Uncle Bruno (John Leguizamo); who has been absent as many believe his gift of prophecy only leads to bad things coming to fruition and has gone into hiding as a result.
Mirabel is soon forced to look deep inside herself and find her strength to overcome her own insecurities and save her family and community.
The film has great animation and is awash in color as it brings the magical community to life. The music is lively and is what you would expect from Lin- Manuel Miranda as it brings joy and energy to the film that is in keeping with the Disney tradition of amazing music in their animated films.
The biggest issue that I had with the film is that while fun and entertaining; the story never took the next step forward and at times dragged. This is not to say that “Encanto” is a bad film as it is lively, colorful, and fun; however it does not reach the heights of Disney classics like “Frozen” “Moana” and other classics. Think of it this way; “Lilo & Stitch” is a fine animated film but few would hold it in the same regard as “The Lion King”, “Beauty and the Beast”, and “The Little Mermaid”.
In the end “Encanto” offers a fun experience for the family and fans to enjoy and shows how even when they do not hit the top of the mountain; Disney is still the Gold Standard in animation.

Disney’s marvelous computer animated feature since Coco!!!
A subtly honest self-critique of Disney’s recent projects…
Disney Animation hasn’t impressed me in recent years because they’ve been more concerned with making films about flawless, marketable characters and it’s really hindered their ability to take risks and tell interesting stories. Encanto is a step in a much better direction. In fact, it’s probably the closest to a Pixar film that the studio has produced since Zootopia. There’s a theme at its core and the film sticks to it. If you can look past the “it’s magic just because” element that’s per the Disney fairy tale norm, Encanto is a strong, character-driven story about the drawbacks of perfection and how having high expectations and ignoring flaws is destructive behavior. The focus is on the characters and how they aren’t the perfect angels they think they are.
It’s like a subtly honest self-critique of Disney’s most recent projects. A villain isn’t needed, flawed characters are what’s paramount to telling an effective story. The characters in Encanto have insecurities and prejudices to overcome and they work past it together through heartfelt writing and plenty of passionate musical sequences with a refreshing cultural touch. I can’t say the songs are especially memorable given Disney’s enormous history – some of the segues are a bit awkward, too – but they further the story, show how the characters feel and burst with plentiful color, emotion and distinctive visuals by an ensemble of characters bearing unique quirks. This is the power of a musical and even though it’s not Disney’s greatest lineup of songs, the effort still shows. Encanto is very enjoyable. Here’s hoping it’s the beginning of a new era for Disney Animation. More passion, more inclusivity, better stories.
I wasn’t enchanted…
When I saw the posters hanging around town for the upcoming Disney animated movie “Encanto”, I must admit that I was definitely interested in watching it. Sure, I didn’t even know what it was about, but I liked the posters, and let’s just face it, Disney does usually pump out pretty good animated movies.
So as I had the chance to sit down and watch what directors Jared Bush, Byron Howard and Charise Castro Smith had to offer with the 2021 animated movie “Encanto”, of course I did so. And thus I sat down to watch it now with my 11 year old son.
At least he thoroughly enjoyed it. Me, on the other hand, not so much. I found the storyline to be somewhat bland and tame. There wasn’t much appeal to the storyline told in “Encanto” for me, so it wasn’t the best of Disney animated movies by a long shot. Hold on, don’t get me wrong here, because I am not saying that “Encanto” wasn’t watchable or bad or anything, no, no, not at all. It was just, well, bland.
Visually, now this is where “Encanto” was hitting a home run. I have to admit that the visual effects, the graphics and CGI, the colors, the art style, and all was just spectacular. And that alone was actually making it well-worth sitting through a viewing of “Encanto”. I have to tip my hat in admiration of the animators and artists here, because they definitely worked the Disney magic.
I have to admit that I was not familiar with the vast majority of the voice talents that brought the characters to life in “Encanto”, aside from John Leguizamo and Wilmer Valderrama. But I will say that Disney definitely had managed to get a great ensemble of talented voice actors and actresses for “Encanto”.
With “Encanto” being an animated Disney movie, of course you will be in for numerous musical segments throughout the course of the story. However, I didn’t really find any of the songs in “Encanto” to be particularly catchy. Perhaps they need to be heard a couple of times in order to stand out. So on that account, then “Encanto” was lacking that Disney magic.
If you enjoy Disney animated movies, then by all means give “Encanto” a chance. It is incredibly beautiful, and perhaps you will fall in love with the storyline and the characters, just because I didn’t doesn’t mean that you won’t.
Ultimately, then I was somewhat disappointed with “Encanto”, which also reflects my mediocre rating of five stars for this 2021 animated movie. “Encanto” definitely didn’t spur the need for more than a single viewing on my behalf.
