IT IS RARE FOR ME TO SEE A MOVIE WHEN IT’S STILL IN THEATERS BUT THANKS TO DISNEY STUDIOS I WAS ABLE TO CATCH UP ON A FEW THAT I MISSED!
Recently the fine folks at Disney Studios (their home page is here) had sent me codes to several of the movies I missed so that I could share my thoughts on them with you. With Part 1 we were taking a look at the live action version of Mulan. Part 2 discussed Soul and Raya and the Last Dragon. Part 3 looked at the live action story of Cruella. Part 4 discussed Luca and Part 5 talked about Jungle Cruise. We have returned with Part 6 and will be discussing Encanto!
The story follows the family Madrigal and more closely one of the grandchildren/ Mirabel. Mirabel is the only member of the family that hasn’t received a magical gift from the family’s magical candle and that doesn’t stop her from trying to do her part. The night her youngest cousin receives his gift cracks start to appear in their magical house and she is the only one that can save the magic. Knowing Lin Manuel Miranda was responsible for the music of this film we went into it with high expectations. Disney beat those expectations and then some but every member of the cast were fantastic but Stephanie Beatriz really shown as the amazing actress she is. This is by far one of the best Disney films we have ever seen!
