On November 24, 2021, Encanto will have its theatrical premiere. The movie will follow the story of Mirabel, a Colombian teenager who is the only member of her family who does not have any magical powers, which often frustrates her.

Here is some more information on Encanco, the brand-new film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, coming out just in time as families get together for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” 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). But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope. Releasing on Nov. 24, 2021, 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 “Zootopia”), co-directed by Charise Castro Smith (writer “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez”), and produced by Clark Spencer and Yvett Merino; Bush and Castro Smith are screenwriters on the film.
Disney has not said when Guests can expect to see Mirabel at Disneyland, or if other characters from the film will make their way to the parks as well. Encanto will premiere in theaters on November 24, 2021.
