Walt Disney Animation Studios released a teaser today for Encanto, its sixtieth animated feature.
The Colombia-set fantasy tells the story of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live in a magical town called Encanto, where everyone has been blessed with a unique gift, from super strength to the power to heal. Everyone that is except for the Madrigals’ curly-haired, bushy-browed daughter Mirabel, who is thoroughly ordinary. When the town’s source of magic is threatened, she becomes her family’s last hope of keeping the magic alive.
Encanto is directed by Byron Howard (Zootopia, Tangled) and Jared Bush (Zootopia), co-directed and co-written by Charise Castro Smith, with music written by Lin-Manuel Miranda. (Miranda, for the record, is also involved in a second animated feature coming out this year: Sony Pictures Animation’s Vivo, which will release on Netflix.)
