WHY IS EVERYONE TALKING ABOUT DISNEY’S ENCANTO?
It claims to be Disney’s most well-created animated series, Encanto, but everyone else seems to be confused as to why it is becoming the talk of the town. Read the article to find out why.
During these past first few weeks of January, there has been a chance you’ve seen: “We don’t talk about Bruno, no no no” or seen Miss Universe Philippines 2021 Ayn Bernos nail her Isabela Madrigal cosplay, and many other memes floating around online. Well, that’s because these memes came from very catchy soundtracks of Disney’s latest animated, Latin-inspired movie, Encanto.

After its theatrical run, Encanto was released on Disney+ on the 24th of December last year. On that day, it didn’t really gain immediate attraction internationally due to it being published during the holidays, where everyone was busy wrapping up the eventful year, 2021. But it’s slowly gaining traction among international Disney fans because of the movie’s animated visuals, an amazing unique batch of diverse characters, and very compelling story.
In the movie, you will meet this extraordinary family of 12, the Madrigals. They live in a small, thriving village hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a charming place called The Encanto. The magic of Encanto blessed every child in the family with a unique gift, every child except our main protagonist, Mirabel. However, throughout the film, she may be the Madrigals’ last hope when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is now in danger.
Trying to stay spoiler-free, this movie will certainly capture your heart with its relatable cast of characters. And some moments will make your eyes water, and scenes will leave you heartbroken. But in the end, you will have to watch the movie to see it for yourself. Meanwhile, the soundtrack of Encanto has left a mark on audiences who saw it first during November in theaters, and with Disney’s DisneyMusicVEVO YouTube channel publishing lyric videos from the album, even people who hadn’t seen the movie yet had a blast listening to “We don’t talk about Bruno.”
