WATCH: Disney releases official trailer for magical animated film ‘Encanto’

A little bit of magic is set to arrive soon.

Disney has unveiled the official full trailer for its upcoming magical adventure and musical fantasy animated feature, Encanto, which arrives in theaters this Thanksgiving.

Encanto tells the tale of the extraordinary Madrigal family, who lives in a magical house situated in the hidden mountains of Colombia, in the vibrant town of Encanto.

The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift—from super strength or the ability to shapeshift—except for one, the 15-year-old Mirabel, who will be taking matters into her own hands for her home. 

The film features the voice of Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Rosa Diaz) as Mirabel, struggling to find her place in her family.

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 studio also shared a new poster for the film ahead of the trailer's release on Wednesday, Sept. 29.

Encanto is written and directed by Byron Howard and Jared Bush, both of whom previously worked on Zootopia. Charise Castro Smith (The Haunting of Hill House, Raya and the Last Dragon) is also a co-writer and co-director.

A shorter teaser trailer was released earlier in July.

The music will match the film's colorful visuals, with Lin-Manuel Miranda (HamiltonMoana) bringing original songs for the film produced by Clark Spencer (Ralph Breaks the Internet) and Yvett Merino Flores (Moana).

The trailer includes an original song from the film, Colombia, Mi Encanto, performed by Colombian singer Carlos Vives (La Bicicleta with Shakira, Volvi a Nacer) and written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Aside from Beatriz, the animated film's voice cast includes María Cecilia Botero, Wilmer Valderrama, Adassa, Diane Guerrero, Mauro Castillo, Angie Cepeda, Jessica Darrow, Rhenzy Feliz, and Carolina Gaitan.

Check out the colorful, two-minute long trailer below.

Encanto is set to arrive in theaters on Nov. 24, 2021.
