Disney fans are in for a special treat on October 22, 2021, if they are registered for the 2021 VIEW Conference.
Disney’s upcoming film Encanto will be featured in a virtual presentation on Friday, October 22. The panel will begin at 12 p.m. PST and registration is free, as is the rest of the conference. This will be VIEW Conference‘s 22nd year — this year’s event will feature both online and in-person components. The in-person events will take place at the groundbreaking OGR venue located in Turin, Italy. The conference is a celebration of all things filmmaking, animation, special effects, video games, interactive media and so much more. There will be over 160 speaking sessions, workshops, panels, keynotes, and masterclasses.
On hand to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the film’s vibrant visuals will be co-director Byron Howard, production designer Ian Gooding and assistant production designer Lorelay Bové.
Howard co-directed the film with Jared Bush and Charise Castro Smith. “Encanto,” which features original songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, follows the Madrigal family who live in an enchanted Colombian village. Every family member has a special power except for Mirabel (voiced by Stephanie Beatriz), who must go on a quest to save her family and town.
As we previously reported, Disney is amping up for the premiere of the film next month by doing an abundance of promotion, such as bringing characters from the film to select Disney theme parks. They posted a listing for an audition to play Maribel (pictured above) at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California to promote the new film. Auditions had to be submitted by September 12. In the meantime, eager Disney fans are going to have to wait until November 24, 2021, to see the crusades of Maribel and her family in Encanto.
