Encanto

Encanto

Well, here’s your frontrunner for Best Animated Feature.

Encanto is exceptional. Visually vibrant, extraordinarily emotional, and ultimately oh so uplifting. It is refreshing and reverential representation for the Afro-Latinx community complete with a cast of colorful and captivating characters who are sure to become fan favorites.

In particular, the scene featuring “Dos Oruguitas” - the track that Disney is pushing for Best Original Song - is one of the most moving scenes I’ve seen in an animated film since the opening of Up. It honestly makes the movie, and I can almost guarantee there won’t be a dry eye in the theater.

Full thoughts coming November 15th on Next Best Picture!
