The film will be in Colombian cinemas one day before the world premiere.
The new Disney movie, Encanto, tells the story of the Madrigal, a family that lives hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house located in a vibrant town in the middle of a wonderful place known as a Encanto. The all-new original film features Stephanie Beatriz as the English voice of Mirabel, a 15-year-old who is struggling to find her place in her family.
In the film’s story, it is said that the magic of the place has blessed all the boys and girls in the family with a unique gift, from super strength to the power to heal. Everyone except Mirabel. But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Charm is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only Madrigal without magical powers, could be her family’s last hope.
“Mirabel es un personaje muy divertido y cariñoso que también anhela profundamente algo más. Tampoco tiene miedo de defender lo que sabe que es correcto, algo que amo y con lo que me identifico mucho… Soy colombiana por parte de mi padre, y desempeñar este papel me llena de un orgullo inmenso, como una niña fan de Disney, miraba repetidamente mis cintas VHS y adoraba cada historia mágica que el mundo de Disney me presentaba. Aprendí en esas historias que todo es posible, especialmente si crees en la magia y la bondad arraigada en lo profundo de todos nosotros”, contó Stephanie Beatriz como la voz en inglés de Mirabel.
Voices in English also include María Cecilia Botero, Wilmer Valderrama, Adassa, Diane Guerrero, Mauro Castillo, Angie Cepeda, Jessica Darrow, Rhenzy Feliz, and Carolina Gaitán.
When will it be released in Colombia?
According to Disney Spain, its premiere will be on November 26, but in Colombia it would be released on November 25, a day before its worldwide release.
The new trailer includes the film’s original song, Colombia, mi Encanto, performed by 17-time Grammy and Latin Grammy winner singer, songwriter and actor Carlos Vives, who hails from Santa Marta, Colombia. “This song is a celebration of the magical diversity of Colombia,” says Vives. “I can’t wait to see how the music will blend with the images and characters inspired by the ‘charm’ of Colombians.”
The film features all-new songs by Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton Moana) and is directed by Byron Howard (Zootopia, Tangled) and Jared Bush (Co-Director of Zootopia), co- Directed by Charise Castro Smith (screenwriter The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez) and produced by Clark Spencer and Yvett Merino. Bush and Castro Smith are the scriptwriters of the film.
The filmmakers were deeply inspired by their research trip to Colombia during the film’s initial development, as well as by their ongoing work with a group of expert consultants gathered throughout the film’s production.
It is noteworthy that, in addition to the participation of the singer Juan Carlos Coronel in the soundtrack and the fact that the story is set in the country, there is another Latin touch in ‘Encanto’, since the New York composer – Lin-Manuel Miranda – of ancestry Puerto Rican, wrote the songs for the tape.
