Disney has released the first official trailer for Encanto, a new musical featuring eight new songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda. The 60th animated feature from the studio will showcase the voice talents of Stephanie Beatriz, who recently appeared in In The Heights as Carla. Set in Colombia, Encanto is directed by Zootopia helmers Byron Howard and Jared Bush, alongside newcomer co-director Charise Castro Smith. Unlike Moana and his contributions to the upcoming The Little Mermaid update, the Encanto score is written entirely by Miranda.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Encanto, is 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 all-new original film features the voice of Stephanie Beatriz as Mirabel, an ordinary 15-year-old who’s struggling to find her place in her family. “Mirabel is a really funny, loving character who also deeply yearns for something more,” says Beatriz. “She’s also not afraid to stand up for what she knows is right—something I love and relate to very much.”
