Disney’s New Encanto Trailer Is Pure, Heartfelt Chaos

Disney’s Encanto First Trailer Is Much More Than Family Drama

It was also announced today that actor John Leguizamo has been added to the voice cast as Uncle Bruno, who briefly appears in the trailer to tell Mirabel that the fate of the family is her responsibility. He joins María Cecilia Botero as Mirabel’s grandmother Alma; Angie Cepeda and Wilmer Valderrama as Mirabel’s parents, Julieta and Agustín; and Doom Patrol’s Diane Guererro and Jessica Darrow as Mirabel’s sisters, Isabela and Luisa. Encanto is directed by Byron Howard, who also did the wonderful Zootopia and Tangled for Disney, along with Zootopia co-director Jared Bush and The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez writer Charise Castro Smith, the latter of whom also wrote the script. The virtually unknown but up-and-coming composer Lin-Manuel Miranda has written several new songs for the film, including a rap for Leguizamo.

It’s the composer’s second partnership with Disney after Moana, but his work on Encanto is different. “The biggest difference is that I’ve been able to be sort of in since the ground floor,” Miranda told io9 last year. “With Moana I was kind of the last guy hired. And they were really a couple of years into the development of the story before I started working on it.”

Encanto premieres in theaters on November 24.
