“Encanto” is an animated movie that was released in 2021. It was directed by Byron Howard and Jared Bush. The movie genre(s) are musical, comedy, adventure, and animation. It is a children’s film and it is rated PG. You can watch it on Disney Plus,  Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Redbox, and Apple TV.

“Encanto” is about a family who was blessed with magical powers all from a candle. Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz) is the only one in her family who didn’t get a power, so she goes on an adventure to find Bruno (John Leguizamo). Mirabel thought that Bruno had something to do with the powers. Luisa (Jessica Darrow) is Mirabel’s sister and she has super strength. Isabela (Diane Guerrero) is also Mirabel’s sister and she can make plants grow. Julieta (Angie Cepeda) is Mirabel’s mom and she can heal people with a meal. Agustín (Wilmer Valderrama) is Mirabel’s Dad and he also doesn’t have a gift.

When I first watched it, I did not like it. I never wanted to watch it again, and now I love it and I sing every single song when I watch the movie. I used to get so bored watching it and now I will just sit and watch it without getting bored, tired, or interrupted.

I recommend people to watch it if you are into animation, Disney movies, adventurous films, or humor. I would rate it 4.5/5.
