When Encanto was released in late 2021, the Disney franchise absolutely took the world by storm.
The beloved Walt Disney Animation Studios movie about The Madrigals, a magical family in Colombia, saw its popular hit “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” hit the top of the charts for multiple weeks, becoming more popular than “Let It Go” from Frozen (2013) and becoming the first Disney song since “A Whole New World” in Aladdin (1992) to top the charts.
The movie went on to win a bevy of awards, including the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature, the Blimp Award for Favorite Animated Movie, and many more.
Since that point, Disney fans have gone crazy wondering what might be next for the franchise.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, who created the beloved Encanto soundtrack, recently shared that Disney Imagineers are currently in the midst of developing an attraction for Disney Park Guests to enjoy.
“The Imagineers are on it,” he said. “I don’t know what they do or where they live, but I know they’re on it.”
And now, another Encanto star has spoken out about the future of the franchise.
Dolores’ voice actress Adassa shared on an Instagram live stream about the “next phase” of Encanto.
Twitter account @iHrtDolores was able to capture the moment from the video.

This all but confirms that there is much more Encanto to come in the future. Disney Concerts and Live Nation are currently taking Encanto on the stage as a concert in select cities across the U.S., but Disney has yet to confirm a sequel or an attraction at Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort as of yet.
However, as cast members from the movie and many more continue to speak out, it’s become increasingly clear that Encanto will be back on the big screen at some point in the future.
