Encanto Film Credits
The all-new original film features the voice of Stephanie Beatriz as Mirabel. Beatriz tells us a little about her character, “Mirabel is a really funny, loving character who also deeply yearns for something more. She’s also not afraid to stand up for what she knows is right-something I love and relate to very much.”
Beatriz goes on to say, “I’m Colombian on my father’s side, and playing this role fills me with immense pride. As a Disney kid, I’d burn through my VHS tapes and adored every single magical story that the world of Disney introduced to me. I learned in those stories that anything is possible, especially if you believe in magic and the goodness rooted deep inside us all.” This is a lot like the character she plays. Mirabel believes in the magic and the goodness rooted deep inside of her family and herself.
The voice cast also includes Maria Cecilia Botero, Wilmer Valderrama, Adassa, Diane Guerrero, Mauro Castillo, Angie Cepeda, Jessica Darrow, Rhenzy Feliz and Carolina Gaitan.
Exciting all-new songs
This new film features all-new songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who you may recognize from Hamilton and Moana. The Directors of this film are Byron Howard, who has also worked on many other Disney Animation films such as Zootopia and Tangled, and Jared Bush, who was also the co-director of Zootopia.
Encanto was co-directed by Charise Castro Smith and produced by Clark Spenser and Yvett Merino. The filmmakers went on a research trip to Colombia during the early development of the film. They were deeply inspired by their research into the country.
Carlos Vives, who is a 17-time GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY winner singer, songwriter, and actor, sings the original song from the film, “Colombia, Mi Encanto.” Vives, who is also a native of Santa Maria, says, “This song is a celebration of the magical diversity of Colombia. I can’t wait to see how the music will blend with the images of the characters inspired by the ‘encanto’ of the Colombians.”
This film is a movie everyone in the family will enjoy. This movie highlights the importance of family, believing in yourself, and standing up for what is right!
