Have you seen Disney’s Encanto? It is an exceptionally brilliant film. From the story to the music…umm hello, Lin Manuel Miranda, Disney does it again! I recently had the opportunity to participate in an Encanto press day with co-Screenwriter/co-Director, Charise Castro Smith. From what she wishes families will take away from this movie, to the character she most relates to, and which room she’d like to live in the House of Madrigal, it was a great conversation. You can view the complete coverage in this Encanto interview with Charise below.
Disney’s ENCANTO Interview with Charise Castro Smith
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.
