Disney’s Encanto: A Magical World (2021)

“You never hurt our family, Mirabel. We are broken… because of me.”

I didn’t consider what movie or series to watch first as I waited for Disney+ to launch in the Philippines. All I know is that the list goes on, especially as Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe draws to a close.

I installed, subscribed, and visited Disney+ Philippines as soon as it became available though. I then saw Coco and then Encanto at that time. Because I adore Coco so much, I figured Encanto would be a fantastic movie to start my Disney+ journey.

Disney’s Encanto: A Magical World

Directed By Byron Howard, Jared Bush, Charise Castro Smith
Produced By Clark Spencer, Yvett Merino
Cast: Stephanie Beatriz, María Cecilia Botero, Wilmer Valderrama, Adassa, Diane Guerrero, Mauro Castillo, Angie Cepeda, Jessica Darrow, Rhenzy Feliz, Carolina Gaitán, Ravi Cabot-Conyers, John Leguizamo

Encanto: A Magical World tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. In the film, the magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal—every child except one, Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz). But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.


You already know that Coco holds a particular place in my heart if you follow me and read my blogs. (I believe this is how everyone feels) Encanto, though, has earned a spot. The two movies each present a distinctive tale that imparts worthwhile lessons to viewers of all ages.

I did, however, like watching Encanto. It’s extremely bright and touches a different world that I am familiar with. There were also some excellent tracks. The pace was the one thing I didn’t enjoy. Near the end, everything seemed hurried. It would have been wonderful to slow things down a bit.

Nevertheless, I thought Encanto was a fantastic movie and a fantastic way to begin my Disney+ journey. If you haven’t seen it yet, do so right away. The movie has fantastic tunes, a solid tale, and valuable lessons.

In case you weren’t aware, they also uploaded the Filipino version of some tracks to Disney Music Asia’s official YouTube account. Let me tell you that when you hear it in your original tongue, it hits you differently. I’m getting to know Encanto and its characters better.

The songs include:

  • “Ang Pamilya Madrigal” (“The Family Madrigal”)
  • “Wag Ikuwento Si Bruno” (“We Don’t Talk About Bruno”)
  • “Ano Pang Kaya Ko?” (“What Else Can I Do?”)
  • “Nas’an Ang Milagro Ko” (‘Waiting On A Miracle’)
  • “Pag Nagigipit” (“Surface Pressure”)
  • “Kayo” (“All Of You”)

Leia, Owen Caling, Cornelius Bascara, Kenz Ancero, Andrei Ayson, Chi Dato Bocobo, Rowena Raganit, Cathy Go, and other Filipino vocalists deserve special recognition for their work on this album. 🙂
