Encanto is the newest animated film from the House of Mouse and it wouldn’t be a Disney film without plenty of music.

The new arrival is no different as it packs in plenty of songs, some of which are the creation of Lin-Manuel Miranda, one of the hottest properties in movie music at the moment.

But just what songs feature in Encanto’s toe-tapping soundtrack and who composed the Latin American-inspired score?

Encanto release date and plot

Encanto – which translates as ‘Charm’ – is arrived in cinemas in the US and UK on November 24th, 2021.

Fans who want to watch from home will be able to do so via Disney+ on December 24th.

The charming film, which features music from Lin-Manuel Miranda, centres on the Madrigal family who live in an enchanted town that’s hidden away in the mountains.

Each member of the family possesses an amazing special ability such as superhuman strength or healing – each member except one, Mirabel.

However, when the family’s magic is put under threat, the ungifted Mirabel learns that she may be the only one able to help.


Encanto soundtrack

It wouldn’t be a Disney film without music and Encanto is certainly packed with songs that make the film a heartwarming and thrilling affair.


Encanto’s score

As well as the film’s songs, Encanto also features a cinematic score composed by Germaine Franco.

The light-hearted score is the perfect fit for Encanto’s Colombian setting with plenty of guitar and trumpets used throughout.

Composer Germaine Franco has been creating music for films and TV series since the 1990s with her most notable work including 2018’s Tag, Dora and the Lost City of Gold as well as her Oscar-winning role in the music department of Pixar’s Coco.

Both Encanto’s songs and score can be found on the soundtrack album which was released to coincide with the film’s arrival and can be found on the likes of Spotify and Apple Music.

Encanto is out now in cinemas in the US and UK after releasing on November 24th while the film will be available on Disney+ from December 24th.
