Need some magic? Here’s how to watch ‘Encanto’ online for free
“The Madrigals are an extraordinary family who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a charmed place called the Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift – every child except Mirabel. However, she soon may be the Madrigals’ last hope when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is now in danger.”
Encanto is a 2021 American computer-animated musical fantasy & comedy film produced by Disney Animated Studios. Directed by Jared Bush & Byron Howard, co-directed by writer Charise Castro Smith and produced by Yvett Merino & Clark Spencer, Encanto is perhaps the most iconic film of the year.
The production’s original songs were penned by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda. This Disney film first premiered at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles on November 3rd, 2021. It was exclusively published in American theaters on November 24th over a thirty-day theatrical run, due to the pandemic. Encanto might’ve underperformed in the box office but it has received many positive reviews, heavily favored by the public.
The pandemic impacted everyone but naturally, folks would love to take their minds off of the mess. Stay tuned to learn about watching Disney’s Encanto online for free!
