New Movie by Disney Animation! The Little Mermaid, Frozen to Encanto, Must watch Disney animated musicals, Animation Studios has been entertaining and transporting us to enchanted, mystical and impeccable utopian worlds filled with fantasy and magic through their world-class animated cinema. Since its inception, Walt Disney Animation Studios has gone on to produce a total of 59 animated films and the release of the upcoming film Encanto will mark the 60th animated film for the studios. Be it childhood or even while growing up, these films have left us teary-eyed but at the same time given us moments to cherish forever. So on that nostalgic note, here are 4 all-time favourite Disney films that one should not miss and of course a little sneak peek into the upcoming film Encanto.
Before the main menu Far From the Tree first played. Tells the story of a raccoon who has trouble taking care of his child, while he is looking for food, this short animation talks about the learning process of the younger generation, so that one day they can be better than the previous generation. Encanto is also similar, although this time, instead of taking the place of a role, the younger generation also invites the older generation to improve, then together they welcome a new, better era.
The Madrigal family are known for their miracles. Thanks to the magic candle that the matriarch, Abuela (María Cecilia Botero) gets, once they reach a certain age, the whole family gains different powers. However, unlike Isabela (Diane Guerrero), her eldest sister who is admired for her ability to make flowers bloom anywhere, and Luisa (Jessica Darrow) the second sister who is a mainstay thanks to her physique, Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz) is considered nothing special. He was the only Madrigal Family not endowed with power.
How could that be? Forget for a moment about the wonders of the magic, because we often encounter similar conditions in reality. Imagine a family. Maybe both parents had high positions, abundant wealth, and were also highly respected. While the children, either have got a job that pays well, or are doing very well in school. Then theres one kid who doesnt stand out in any field. People, including his parents and siblings, all said, “How can he be so different, huh?”.

That difference made him underestimated, or even distrusted. So, no matter how hard the child tries to prove himself, as long as he is different, his existence will continue to be sidelined. Thats roughly what Mirabels condition is.
The script by Charise Castro Smith and Jared Bush composes a series of relatable conflicts, which even though they are filled with magical things, are still grounded, and of course emotional. No antagonists here. There are no terrible monsters, no bad humans, no curses to be removed. The enemy of the character is “expectation”. The family expects all members to be perfect. Expectations that put tremendous pressure if they fail to be met. Even for those who are successful, it does not mean that peace always accompanies, because perfection could be in the form of falsehood that is forced to be pursued.
Apart from writing the script, Jared Bush also sits in the directors chair with Byron Howard (Bolt, Tangled, Zootopia), and the two are good at putting together beautiful, colorful pictures, especially in musical sequences, which, like the story, are magical. The songs composed by Lin-Manuel Miranda are still catchy, although overall they are still below his best works. Dos Oruguitas (Two Oruguitas), an acoustic number that accompanies one of the most touching moments throughout the film, is my favourite.
Unfortunately, the third round appeared a bit rushed. The scriptwriters seem confused to outsmart the absence of conventional antagonists when compiling the climax. At least, the third act is able to link all the problems, then bring them into one direction, which is about fighting for the family (and community). That one of the opposites of struggle is that, over time, individuals forget their reasons for fighting for it.
