What is the Encanto movie about?
Encanto is a Walt Disney Animation Studios animated film. The Encanto movie is about a young girl named Mirabel who lives in Encanto in Colombia. Every person in Encanto, except Mirabel, has been blessed with a gift unique to each person. When the magic gifts are in danger, Mirabel sets out to save the magic for everyone.
(You can even watch the Disney movie Encanto for party of your party activities or create a watch party station where kids can come in and out of that area for your Encanto-themed party! Or, create your party around a movie night!)
