Encanto ★★★★½

I was expecting to like this but I wasn’t expecting to like this to the level I did. But this is one of my favorite Disney movies! The animation looks beautiful and I really like how it’s used. The music from Lin Manuel Miranda is really good and I really like how they did all the musical numbers. The themes here are great I love how this movie explores both the issues with being labeled as not special but also with being labeled with as special and the expectations that come with that. Also it explores some interesting family dynamics with how the insecurities and problems of one person can cause problems within the following generations in their family. One thing I also really liked about this movie is how it doesn’t pad the runtime with random like side quest stuff that sometime these Disney movies do. This is just a family drama with a magic twist and that Disney magic.
