WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

The Madrigals are a family that live in an enchanted house within the mountains of Colombia, where everyone has been granted a special ability – except for Mirabel (Beatriz), who is the only one in her family to have no powers. However, when she discovers that the magic is under threat, she is the only one who can save it and thus save her family…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Disney’s 60th (!) animated feature is an all-encompassing and heavily magical new musical that celebrates Colombian cultures and traditions, and features some new show-stoppers by none other than Lin-Manuel Miranda.
