Charm is the next Walt Disney Animation Studios title that will hit theaters around the world very soon with a story centered on Colombia. It is the 60th animated film in the history of the company, directed by Jared Bush, Bryon Howard y Charise Castro Smith, who have been working on this project since 2016, shortly after the launch of Zootopia.
What is it about? This says its official synopsis: “The Madrigal Family lives hidden in the Andes near the Cocora Valley in a town called Encanto and whose members are blessed with a magical power such as great strength or the power to heal, which the same place where they live provides them. However, Mirabel Madrigal, a fifteen-year-old girl, is the only one without powers in her family. When Encanto’s magic is in danger, Mirabel decides to undertake a long journey through Colombia in order to find her power and save her family. “.
In the middle of this year its first official trailer arrived, which is full of references to Colombian culture, landscapes of the Coffee Axis and it was said that within the film there will be nods to Gabriel García Márquez’s books. There is no doubt that it will be a unique event for the nation, so the star Maluma will have its place by dubbing a character of its own, plus we will have original songs by Carlos Vives and Sebastián Yatra.
The cast of original voices is made up of Stephanie Beatriz (Maribel Madrigal), Maria Cecilia Botero (Alma Madrigal), Wilmer Valderrama (Agustín Madrigal), Angie Cepeda (Isabela Madrigal), Diane Guerrero (Isabela Madrigal), Jessica Drrow (Luisa Madrigal), Carolina Gaitan (Pepa Madrigal), Mauro Castillo (Felix Madrigal), Adassa (Camilo Madrigal), Happy Rhenzy (Camilo Madrigal), Ravi-Cabot Conyers (Antonio Madrigal) and John Leguizamón (Bruno Madrigal).
