Encanto ★★½

Felt too predictable and didn’t have a typically large Disney climax. The music was all too forgettable but very strong hints of LMM and Hamilton. The tale behind the candle mirrors the traditions of the community very well and in incorporating individual and collective trauma within the family. There are some fun moments but overall the design of it all is just fine. Very low on my list of Disney animated movies.

i.e. Mirabel kept only complaining about her strong and perfect sisters which got annoying by the third time. Could’ve been original with finding new pins about her other family members’ gifts. ‘Surface Pressure’ got better as it went on and was maybe my favorite
