Miranda was even more involved with Disney’s newest movie Encanto, a movie about a magical family who lives in Colombia in a special place called the Encanto.  Speaking to D23 during the Inside Disney podcast, Miranda said, “Being in there from the beginning made a huge difference to me because I was able to be really involved from a story standpoint.”


The story focuses on the entire Madrigal family, which Lin-Manuel Miranda explained further, saying, “We’re gonna bring an entire intergenerational 12-character family to the screen and make the complexity of those relationships actually the story.”


Miranda explained that the team wanted to make a story that centered around navigating family relationships. When you listen to the songs, you’ll hear personal stories, as Miranda said, “the meat of it is our own family stories.”


From the first song, titled The Family Madrigal, the audience will immediately understand the family and everyone’s story. “I wrote it knowing that the characters might change, their powers might change, and they did, but the structure and writing that early was really a nice thing to put on the corkboard,” Miranda said.

  1. Yes, I saw Encanto and enjoyed it very much. Interesting film. Songs were lively and informative. Characters were mostly hilarious. Especially Dolores who shrugs her shoulders, hears everything, then makes a quick exit. And Bruno, welll…. I can’t talk about him. Silenzio Bruno! Oh , that’s a different movie. Luca. I suggest you see Encanto! It’s enchanting and funny and one hour and 49 minutes flew by. The merchandise is adorable too
