‘Encanto’ Fever Takes Over the World

In 2021, Disney released the movie-musical Encanto. The film tells the story of the Madrigal family, who have magical powers except for the youngest child, Mirabel. Fans immediately gravitated toward the themes of family, tradition, and finding your place in the world.

What especially caught the attention of the world was the film’s incredible music created by Lin Manuel Miranda. The¬†Encanto¬†score immediately began topping charts. For months after the film’s release, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” was inescapable due to its international success.

Now it seems that Bruno, the subject of the song, will be calling Walt Disney World Resort home very soon.

Some fans are finding the humor in how long it took for Disney to add Bruno to the Parks. One fan jokes, saying;

“So it’s 572 days for Disney to think, “Maybe we should cast a performer for this hit movie.”

While Bruno appeared at Oogie Boogie Bash in Disney California Adventure last year, this will be his first appearance at Walt Disney World Resort.
