Animated film ‘Encanto’ comes to Disney+ on Friday, December 24, 2021

The screenwriters of this new Disney film were inspired for this story when they were on a study tour to Colombia. So you can expect lots of beautiful music that will take you to that beautiful country.

The song you were already introduced to in the trailer (“Colombia, Mi Encanto”) was sung by Carlos Vives. He has won 17 GRAMMYs and Latin GRAMMYs and is a singer, songwriter and actor from Santa Marta (Colombia). He says: “This song celebrates the magical diversity of Colombia. I can’t wait to see how the combination between the music with the images and characters inspired by the ‘encanto’ of Colombians ends up turning out.”

What time will Encanto be available on Disney+?

On Friday, December 24, you can put the kids in front of the TV from 12AM PT / 3AM ET / 8AM GMT, because then the new film will appear online on Disney+. Go directly to Encanto on the official website of Disney+.

Big tip: make sure you can take 2 hours off work, because with an average of 7.6 out of 14,000 votes on IMDb, the film is rated very highly by viewers. Definitely a good movie to wacht for the whole family.

‘Encanto’ (movie, 2021): plot, information and trailer

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.
