Quick-Thoughts: Disney’s Encanto

Despite this being mostly predictable to Disney’s usual T, Encanto’s songs and messages slapped wayyyy too hard for me not to enjoy this — that opening kills! Really appreciate how confined the film’s setting is too, which smartly made it easier for the story to close in on how every character in this Madrigal family is an antagonist in their own little manner rather than it strictly being just some underdeveloped, outside force that the studio usually finds themselves writing in; identity crises stemming from an overly relied and emphasized specialty or kettling to a single stereotype are our own worst enemies! Bigotry from tradition also believe it or not! 

Verdict: B-

2021 Ranked
