Encanto Ending Explained: Generations, Divided

For Walt Disney Animation's 60th feature-length major motion picture "Encanto," the audience is transported to a vibrant village in the mountains of Colombia and introduced to the extraordinary Madrigal family. Thanks to the magic of their palatial home, each member of the family has been bestowed a unique gift such as super strength, the ability to heal, or shape-shifting.

Encanto Stars Stephanie Beatriz And John Leguizamo On Family, Colombia, And Lin-Manuel Miranda [Interview]

"I would say I'm a Disney heroine, which would include all the princesses and myself," the "Encanto" star said in an interview with /Film ahead of the release of the latest Disney animated musical (in theaters now)."Encanto" is not your typical Disney animated musical either, though it's got all the hallmarks: a spunky female protagonist, goofy animal sidekicks that may or may not talk, magic houses, characters bursting into s...

Encanto Directors On Creating Disney's First Magical Realist Musical [Interview]

Byron Howard, Jared Bush, and Charise Castro Smith might have created the first-ever magical realist musical. The "Encanto" directors and co-director/writer, respectively, have created a Disney movie that more closely emulates that singular literary genre than many a live-action movie — and they did it with song and dance."When Jared and Byron brought me on to work on this film they were really interested in making a film that was inspired by magical realism," Smith, who co-wrote the script with...

Encanto Review: A Sweet But Formulaic New Disney Adventure

Walt Disney Animation Studios has come a long way since the arrival of its first full-length animated feature, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," nearly 85 years ago. The studio's massive legacy is hard to shake when watching their 60th animated feature, "Encanto," in part because the new film is proof of how many strides have been made by its animators and creative team (a majority of those long-overdue strides made in just the last decade). But it's also hard to shake because "Encanto" depicts...

Encanto Featurette: How Disney Worked Its Magic On The Madrigal Family

In a mere two weeks, Disney will sprinkle more magic on the world with their latest feature film, "Encanto." This musical love letter to Colombia comes from Zootopia creators/directors, Byron Howard and Jared Bush, with music by Lin-Manuel Miranda. (The "Hamilton" creator also happens to be involved in three other 2021 musicals, which I guess makes him the new king of the genre.) Miranda wrote all the songs in the film, along with singer-songwriter Carlos Vives and based on some early buzz from ...

Encanto Early Buzz: An Enchanting, Colorful, And Heartfelt Family Musical

We've addressed in the past how 2021 has apparently turned into the Year of the Musical, some of which didn't turn out quite as expected and others that we are maintaining very high hopes for. "Encanto" is a relative break from the larger live-action trend this year, pouring all its vibrancy and musical energy into the medium of animation instead. The Colombia-set film has come with all sorts of built-in expectations ever since our first glimpse of the project, boasting an impressively wide rang...

‘Better Call Saul’ Review: Who Came Out on Top in ‘Fall’?

(Every week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Better Call Saul season 3 by answering one simple question: who came out on top when the credits rolled?) “Fall” is the sparsest episode of the season so far, in that our main characters occupy separate spaces as opposed to overlapping in any real capacity. It’s the first time we’ve seen the storylines so disparate, and it goes a long way towards emphasizing just how isolated they all are. Nearly three seasons through Better Call Saul, our m...
