Set in Colombia, Encanto centers on a family who received an enchanted candle long ago. This specific candle granted them all magical powers – except for one daughter – who appears to be the main protagonist of the film. On top of this, said candle also blessed the family’s house with a bunch of miraculous powers, too.
Of course, Encanto gives off lots of signature Disney vibes. From the company’s trademark heartwarming tone to a handful of catchy musical numbers to a wonderfully eye-popping color palette, this looks set to be yet another hit for the Mouse House following Raya and the Last Dragon from earlier this year.
Encanto is scheduled to arrive in theaters on Nov. 24, 2021.
