Just weeks ahead of Encanto arriving in theaters, Mirabel, the main character of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ newest film, has arrived at Disney California Adventure. Starting on November 12th, Mirabel began to greet guests. Mirabel can be found at ¡Disney Viva Navidad! as a part of Disney Festival of Holidays. Encanto is a musical comedy that is inspired by the people and cultures of Columbia. This addition is a perfect addition to Disney Festival of Holidays at the Disneyland Resort.
Encanto will be in theaters on November 24th. Mirabel’s visit to Disney California Adventure is a limited offering that coincides with the Holidays at Disneyland. Right near Mirabel’s meet and greet location, guests can also watch and experience ¡Disney Viva Navidad! throughout the day.
Disney’s Encanto Official Description
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” 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. 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 (voice of 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. The film is directed by Jared Bush (co-director “Zootopia”) and Byron Howard (“Zootopia,” “Tangled”), co-directed by Charise Castro Smith (writer “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez”), and produced by Yvett Merino and Clark Spencer; the screenplay is by Castro Smith and Bush. “Encanto” features original songs by Emmy®, GRAMMY® and Tony Award® winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”); Germaine Franco (“Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” “Little,” “Tag”) composed the original score.
Holidays at Disneyland and Disney Festival of Holidays are now being offered daily at the Disneyland Resort. This will continue through January 9th. Mirabel will be meeting guests for a limited time during this merriest season of the year.
