Disney has released two new animated films in 2021. First was Raya and the Last Dragon, and now Encanto is in theaters and winning over families with their traditional Disney magic. Both films continue Disney’s efforts at showcasing other cultures and traditions with Encanto centering on a magical family who live in the mountains of Columbia. The Madrigal Family has been gifted a special everlasting candle that has provided life’s blessings for generations. There are special gifts and talents passed down from one generation to the next. That is until young Mirabel (Beatriz) has been skipped over. She’s grown up feeling ordinary and like the odd one out compared to the rest of her family. On the night of her cousin Antonio’s blessing, Mirabel starts to see the walls of the family estate start to crack jeopardizing their special Encanto. It’s up to her to find a miracle and save her family and the foundation.
