Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Encanto is a film that puts diverse characters front and centre. It tells the tale of an extraordinary family – the Madrigals – who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a magical house in a vibrant town in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal. Every child except one: Mirabel (voice of Stephanie Beatriz). When Mirabel discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger she decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.
