The extremely popular Encanto has set a ridiculous amount of records, inspired memorable sweet stories thanks to its diverse cast of characters, has Disney fans wanting an Encanto-themed attraction in the Parks, and even encouraged one Utah Dad to create his own stunning Encanto projection show.

It’s no secret that while some Disney fans eye roll over the film’s success, the numbers show the majority thinks Disney Animation’s Encanto is rather impressive. Now that it has been nominated for 3 Academy Awards including Best Animated Feature, the Family Madrigal is headed back to the big screen with a return to theaters!

Happy watching, Encanto fans!
