What critics are saying about the new Disney movie

Disney’s “Encanto” centers around the Madrigal family, an extraordinary family who lives hidden in the mountains of Colombia and is bestowed with unique gifts.


Walt Disney Animation Studios He has been providing charming animated films to audiences since 1937. Critics say his 60th movie, “Encanto”, is one of the best.

Set to hit theaters before Thanksgiving, the movie focuses on the Madrigal family, a family that lives hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a place called Encanto.

The family arrived in Encanto after Abuela forced Alma to flee her home with her baby triplets. She got a miracle that provided her with a magical home and blessed every child in the family with unique gifts – except for Mirabel.

However, when the magic surrounding Encanto is in danger, causing the foundations of the house to crack and the Madrigals’ powers to disappear, Mirabel is the one to step up and figure out how to stop him.

The film was largely praised by critics for its animation style, versatility, and “charming” songs. It currently has a “Fresh” rating of 93% on Rotten Tomatoes out of 82 reviews.

“Disney’s 60th animated film is among their best,” Scott Mendelson said in his review of the film for Forbes.

He wrote, “Even with some periodically gloomy tones and pessimistic thematic elements, it is overall a delightfully colorful and exciting fantasy that will make us realize once again how visually impressive we take for granted in modern animation.”

Here’s what some critics think of Disney’s “Encanto” ahead of its Wednesday premiere:
