Disney’s Encanto premieres today and love is pouring in from all over the world for the musical animated comedy.
Encanto means “seduction” in Spanish and the film tells the story of the magical Madrigal family, all of which have some kind of power except for one exception. Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) plays their normal daughter, Mirabel.

I think the taste of that, the feeling of that, is really captured in the music of the piece.” this cartoon, which I think is very special.”
Miranda also said that the experience of making the film reminded him of his own family.
“It’s the most matriarchal family,” he said of his father’s family in Puerto Rico. “Everybody still lives in the house, and everyone brings checks to Abuela, and she reallocates the money as she sees fit.”
Melissa Fumero, Beatriz’ Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-stars, saying the film was “pure magic.”
One fan who found the movie relevant tweeted: “There are no words to describe the joy and pride.”
