Walt Disney Animation has enjoyed a phenomenal streak of critical and commercial success over the past decade, with nearly every feature in the studio winning rave reviews and doing some big box office deals.
Tangled, Ralph’s wreck and more Ralph breaks the internet, Frozen and his successor, Great hero 6, Moana, Zootopia and Raya and the last dragon are all held in high regard, and this should continue with Encanto. Zootopia the duo Jared Bush and Byron Howard come together to tell the story of the Madrigals, a family that lives in the titular place, a magical place nestled in the Colombian mountains.
Encanto hits theaters on November 24, and as you can see in the first set of reactions below, it looks like the Mouse House has yet another winner on their hands.
Germaine Franco and Lin-Manuel Miranda deliver the music, with the voice cast starring Stephanie Beatriz, John Leguizamo, Diane Guerrero, Wilmer Valderamma, Maluma, Disney’s lucky charm Alan Tudyk and more. With just over two weeks, we can expect Encanto to put a major dent in the resurgent box office given the popularity of the Walt Disney Animation brand and the encouraging responses to early screenings.
