Movie Review – Encanto

Read Time:1 Minute, 48 Second

First of all, I’m sure kids are going to love it for the “magic” — all the singing, and the vibrant animation. Parents are probably shaking their heads now. Another one of those, huh? What makes it into the A-league as a kids’ animation is its story. The story is actually more educational for parents than kids. There’s a little short animation before the movie started in my theater, and they go with the same theme: parenting.

I won’t say more in case of spoilers, but parents, if you have a toddler, take them to see this movie and it will remind you why you love them so much.

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. 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.
