Encanto live two-night event announced

A special celebration panel for the Disney hit Encanto took place at D23 Expo with the cast and crew of the musical in attendance. A two-night event titled Encanto: An Immersive Live-To-Film Concert Experience will take place on two nights this November at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California

Encanto director Jared Bush wrote on Twitter: “I’m asked a lot if there’ll be more #Encanto — movies, TV, Theatre, etc. I’ll say this, it was always our dream, but the real deciders are the fans who found themselves in this story, who saw their family in ours, who chose to spend time with the Madrigals... and want to again.” Encanto tells the story of a young Colombian woman named Mirabel, who is part of the magical Madrigal family. Everyone in her family is given a special ‘gift’ when they’re young, but Mirabel never received one, leading her to question her place in the Madrigal legacy.
