The Cast of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Encanto Talk About the Madrigal Family

The wait for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 60th feature film, Encanto, is finally over. Directed by Byron Howard and Jared Bush, co-directed by Charise Castro Smith, and with songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda, Encanto tells the story of the magical Madrigal family. Each child in the large family has their own unique gift — except Mirabel, the protagonist, voiced by Stephanie Beatriz. Despite that, it may be up to Mirabel to save her family’s magical casa and all of their magic. Disney News recently sat in on a press conference with the cast of the magical movie, where they talked all about how they relate to their characters, what it was like making the movie, and what it’s like to have a Disney movie set in Colombia.

We Just Found the Most RARE Coffee Cup in Disney World!

If you’ve been following along with AllEars for some time now, then you probably know that we tend to enjoy a daily cup of coffee (or three) when visiting Disney World.

And, today, rather than being surprised by our coffee, we were surprised by the CUP that it came in!
