Disney’s newest animated film, Encanto, will hit Disney+ just in time for the holiday — and it won’t cost you extra to watch!
Disney+ has just announced that Disney’s newest animated film, Encanto, will hit the streaming service on December 24 — with no additional cost! That’s right, unlike Jungle Cruise, Mulan, and Black Widow, Encanto will go to Disney+ without Premier Access.
Encanto has already received rave reviews and breaking the box office as it brought in $40.3 million in North America since Wednesday, according to Variety. The film, which includes original music from Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda, tells the story of Mirabel Madrigal (Stephanie Beatriz), who is the only member of her family without a magical gift.
More on Encanto
If you have yet to see the brand-new film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Encanto, it is described as:
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.
Encanto is currently playing in theaters.
